Reimagining your porch can be so easy and you won’t even have to take out a second mortgage for this makeover. So, here are some tips we here at the Southport Antique Mall think are just great for a budget friendly porch transformation.
Tip #1 Paint is a simple and easy way to update any porch furniture (if your furniture is wicker, spray paint is easier than trying to brush it on)!
Tip #2 Don’t be afraid of darker colors on your porch. In fact, the porch is the perfect place to include those deeper hues you love because the sunlight brightens the room for you!
Tip #3 Don’t want to take the time to repaint or need more of a change then the paint creates? You can change the cushion covers on your furniture! Don’t know how to sew? Not a problem! Buy pillowcases with a pattern you love, slip them over the cushions, and fold (you can safety pin them for extra security).
Tip #4 If you have bench pillows you can use the matching sheet sets to cover them or buy a funky, coordinated body pillow cover and use that!
Tip #5 Don’t be afraid to reimagine your own accessories too! Just because it looks old and tired in the living room, doesn’t mean it won’t bring new life to your porch.
