We don’t have a basement at the Blue Cottage, and we don’t even have a shed yet. So where does everything end up? On our porch.
It was filled with boxes and bikes and building supplies all winter, but now it’s spring and I want that porch to look nice and be able to enjoy it.
Here are a few porch decorating ideas I love:
We don’t have space for a big table on our porch, but I like the rattan chairs and the grain sack pillows in this picture.You know about my love for grain sacks, I even curated a collection of grain sacks for sale on eBay.
My favorite idea: the linens on a clothes line!
It mimics what I did with the dish towels and tension rods in our living room — it gives you added privacy but lets in light. Plus, I have two bird cages, and now that I see this idea, I want to put them out on the porch.
I definitely want to find a cool sign for our porch, and a cute bench. And I like the crate table.
Another great idea for more privacy and to make the porch feel more like a room is hanging burlap just in the corners. I would use inexpensive drop cloths since they let in more light.
I already have an old crate and vintage bottles, and even a little step stool like that. It’s in my store right now — I might have to steal it back. I also like that grain sack pillow with the one red stripe.
Our porch is small, and there are a lot of things I want to add to it. Wish me luck that it’s all going to fit!
Do you have a porch at your home? Do you enjoy decorating and using it?
