Spring is here and the flowers are blooming. Now is the perfect time to spruce up that tired front porch. During the gloomy winter months your porch has become a gathering place for anything that didn’t have a place. It’s time to reclaim your porch with a little organization and spring makeover.
Making your front porch a space you like to spend time in is like adding a new room to your home. By creating an in-home retreat you’ve given yourself a place where you can commune with nature, read a book, or just have your morning coffee. Your front porch can even be a place to entertain guests and spending time on the porch can make meeting your neighbors easier allowing you to feel more in touch with your community.
A front porch makeover doesn’t have to mean hours in the giant home center deciding between near identical over priced outdoor furniture. By making use of items you already have and stopping by your favorite antique mall to pick up a few vintage focal items and some pieces you can re-do, your makeover does not have to break the bank either.
