Happy Memorial Day!!
First I have to say a big thank you to all who have served and are serving in the armed forces, including my husband, sister, grandfather, and cousins. I’m so proud of you and beyond blessed to call you family.
This weekend is the perfect time to debut our porch makeover for under $100!
Screened In Porch Makeover
To keep this makeover inexpensive, I used my existing furniture and spruced it up with a bit spray paint. Left over interior paint was used on the chairs, and spray paint on the bench.
I was able to hang a candle chandelier that I’ve had for years by attaching a metal plant hanger (that comes out like an arm) to the wood frame of the porch. I love the impact if makes on the space! It really completes it.
The only other costs were drop cloths for the curtains and a couple of new plants. I used drop cloths since they were for outside, were inexpensive, and long enough for the project!
I had to come up with a creative way to hang the curtains. I used small hook screws and curtain rings to attach the drop cloths and hang evenly around the corners of the porch.
Shells we picked up on the beach are lined up on the railings. I foresee some lazy afternoons on this side of the porch in a wicker chaise lounge and garden stool. With some easy repurposing and creative thinking, this porch is finally transformed into an outdoor living space. I can’t wait to spend some more time out here! What are your plans for Memorial day?
