Porch. Thursday , April 19th , 2018 - 06:23:26 AM
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.
If you are building a porch onto your home or are remodeling one you currently have, you are being given a great opportunity! This is your chance to really decide what the outside of your home says about the people who live in it. Of course, before you can start decorating or building, you need to get some good ideas.
Do you have a container garden? Container gardens are friendly for porches, patios and decks where you don't have a lot of mainstream gardening space. A container garden allows you to have herbs, vegetables and flowers in different sized pots right on your porch. But do your pots look like a hodge podge collection of many sizes and colors that don't quite jive together? Then how about painting a bunch of inexpensive pots in a color(s) that complements your porch or patio.
Small Porch. This porch basically is self explanatory. It is small, but that does not necessarily mean it should go without being noticed. There are many amazing ways to make your small porch cozy and stand out from the crowd. Carefully choose the items you would like to use on your porch. Maybe you just have room for one or two simple chairs. Use the space you do have and do not worry about the space you do not have. Add flower planters to the porch rails to create a lovely small porch. Use empty corner space for corner planters and tables. This will free up the much needed floor space.
The pots look very smart with her black wrought iron furniture and black fire pit. So instead of noticing the pots, your eyes are drawn to the beautiful flowers she planted: zinnias, wave petunias, marigolds, dahlias and trailing vincas. Would work equally well with container vegetables like tomatoes, cucumbers and zucchinis. You could paint your pots any color you like.
When you want to spend time relaxing with your family and friends, your front porch is the perfect place to do that. If you have the right front porch furniture, especially porch rocking chairs, then everyone will enjoy spending time together on the porch just relaxing or even playing games.
