Easiest Makeover For Your Outdoor Furniture

Spring is always a busy time of the year, isn’t it?

With so much to do outside, it is easy to get overwhelmed,

I know I do!

I tend to start the new season

with such excitement as I think this year I am going to…

and run the list of things I would like to get done.

But then excitement turns into reality as

a. I realize my time with 2 little boys is limited,

not complaining:).

b. I have a husband who would rather play with my boys than actually do

“house stuff,”

again, not complaining:).

c. We have a budget.


So after this happens I TRY to prioritize.

And remind myself that this is not a race to see who has the prettiest home.

I have said this before but things take time, especially in my home.

So…one of the projects I knew I could tackle this year was our front porch.

My hope is to make this outdoor space feel like another room in our home.

Our rather large wrap around front porch has been home to

toys, balls, lacrosse sticks, bats and large ride on vehicles

for the past 2 years.

You can picture it, right:)?

So I made a plan to see what could stay & get a little makeover,

what had to go & what I could splurge on(the fun part!)

Starting with the makeover pieces seemed the likely first step.

Check out this quick & easy makeover.

It always amazing me by how paint can transform!

This is a primer and paint in one,

I can sit snuggled with my pretty throw and watch my boys play,

maybe sip a glass of ice tea and just take it all in.

    1. Thank you Rita! I always love visiting your blog & seeing your beautiful photos!

  1. My color scheme seems to be going ivory/cream/taupe/browns, heavy on the whites, with punches of dark. My patio dining set,was black, and it just clashed. I bought six cans of dark brown camouflage paint and did the deed about two months ago. The dining set is the X back one from Restoration Hardware, about three years old. Not cheap! I was terrified, but it looks fantastic. It is a very dark rust/bronze finish, came out smooth and professional looking. The original creamy white seat cushions look great with the warmer finish. I am so glad I took the risk!

    1. Judy, that sounds beautiful! Good for you for taking the risk, horray for the spray!

  2. I need this inspiration right now, we are trying to decide what to do with our deck furniture. I think we will try the paint before buying new. Love the colors!

  3. Of all the spray paints that I have tried, this is, hands down, the BEST! Covers beautifully. Looks awesome!

  4. Looks great! All it needs is some lemonade. I can’t believe you bought that at Lowe’s! It looks like a vintage find 😉

    1. I know Jaime, a nice glass of lemonade would be perfect! Who would have thought Lowes:). Have a great weekend!

  5. Beautiful, Jen! I love the vibrant, happy color! And, how did I miss that pillow from HomeGoods (must go back)! I look forward to seeing more of your fun outdoor projects … and, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet note about our refreshed sitting room with our new chandie! 🙂

    1. Thanks Heather, even though I love neutrals I am so happy to see color outside:). Have a great week!
