Sometimes you just need to refresh instead of total replacing. That is exactly what I did when I set to work on my front porch.
The cushions I had on the chairs were in bad shape. Instead of buying new cushions or for that matter new chairs for the front porch I decided to give them a face lift. It seems like every year or two I have to replace the material on these chairs so I decided that I wasn’t going to waste my time sewing new cushions when I would have to do it again next year. Instead I brought out my handy-dandy glue gun and went to work to replace the cushions. I had found some fabulous fabric at Joann’s awhile back in the clearance rack and I knew that would be my front porch. The only thing I needed to get the job done was motivation. It finally hit me about a week ago.
I took these old-looking cushions and made them into part of a welcoming spot on my front porch. Once I recovered the cushions I set to work doing some more DIY projects to add to the hospitality of my front porch. I used some washi tape and wrapped it around the two candle holders that sit on the table. I relocated an owl that my husband has made for me to the table.
I then took on the project of repairing an old metal lantern we had that was rusted and basically looked just messed up. I sanded the metal and then spray painted it a beautiful bright red. I love the finished look of this lantern.
Then I added a flower-pot that I had inside and added a beautiful plant, a royal geranium. Here is what the finished project looks like.
And here is the entire project before and after the redo
So tell me have you tackled a project around your home lately?
