Spring Porch Updates: Taking My Own Advice!

In my last post, I gave 5 inexpensive ways to update your porch or patio for the spring. I put my own advice to work and incorporated several of those ideas into my own outdoor space. Here are the results!

I sprayed painted my pots black to coordinate with the outdoor fabric I used for my pillows.

Since it's still too early around here to plant my flower boxes, I added color with some ivy, a fern and spring tulips. I also DIY'd a wreath for my front door for about $25! 

I made new covers for my outdoor pillows with fabric I found at Hobby Lobby for $8/ yard.

And added sheet moss to my planters for a more finished look with the spring tulips.

The best part is that the entire spring overhaul cost me less than $100! 

Happy Spring Planting!


  1. You update looks so fresh. I'm just finishing up new pillow covers for our back deck. I love those plant stands as well, they look great with your newly painted pots & plants.

  2. Love the black planters with that gorgeous fabric

  3. they look so great- the black lets the colors of the plants shine and pop!

  4. Ohhhh, love the black planters...looks great! :)

  5. Looks great! I need to do this to my front porch too!

  6. I just love it!! Do you mind me asking - where is the furniture from?
