Our daughter-in-law gave us this great idea. She wanted all of her flower pots to be black to go with her black wrought iron furniture, but the cost was prohibitive especially in the larger-sized pot sizes. She would have had to purchase more expensive ceramic pots to get them in black. So she purchased inexpensive plastic pots in various colors and sizes, took them home and spray painted them all black. She used a type of spray paint that's specifically made for plastic. The result? A great looking container garden with a unified look.
The mirror was hung from chains and reflected the outdoors. Imagine hanging a mirror on your porch. Not just any mirror but one that has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? The trees in your front yard? Maybe some colorful hanging baskets hanging from your porch? A mirror is a beautiful accent you do not expect to see on a porch.
I recently saw a porch makeover where a beautiful mirror was hung on a gorgeous contemporary porch.
Another option is to turn your porch or part of it into a screened room or three season room. Screen porch kits and porch window panels make it so easy to do. It's an excellent way to prolong your outdoor living season and add value to your home.
1. What is your budget? Porches are not cheap. Just the simple act of building one can be expensive, so take a look at what you can afford. Learn what building materials cost in your area. Price the various fixtures you are thinking of using. Chances are there are places that will sell you the same fixtures for half the price of that \"brand name\" home improvement store across the street from the mall.
Country Porch. If you live off the beaten path and are in love with the idea of a view from your front porch being more like rolling hills, wilderness scenes, or just a long stretch of land dotted with the beauty of nature then you will enjoy a country style porch. These porches typically are low to the ground but not always. They are usually made from wood or poured concrete and there is an array of different ways to decorate them. A country porch is never complete without rocking chairs. You can use as many or as little as you like but at least have one. A knitted afghan infused with vibrant colors hung upon a rocker is sure to add some down home charm. Wicker seating is a favorite on many country porches and you must not forget the swing! Another great idea for your country porch is to use repurpose items to give your porch a broken in and crafty feel. Repurpose items to decorate your porch can include old doors, antique washboards, wooden shutters, old windows and even renovated tables.
