After sewing the hook and loop closures on the futon cover, and taking everything outside, the porch has gone from drab to colorful!
Before, our porch had some bright red chairs and yellow walls, but other than that, was lacking in color. The faded black futon cover and the old water damaged printer cart were just depressing.
Over the past two days, I've injected some color, some much needed storage, and a little bit of fun.
New art in white frames can be added to over time.
Brighter, more graphic throw pillows up the fun factor, and the navy blue futon cover in an outdoor fabric brings in color that will resist fading over time.
A newly blue baker's rack holds shoes, garden tools, and my ever growing philodendron.
We added a clock for a pop of red, and finally, the exterior doors are painted, and no longer disgusting.
I'm so happy that such small changes have made a big difference in the feeling of our back porch.
Now I've just got to pick a rug (and buy it) and this room will be DONE!
