Punch-up Your Porch for Summer!

Punch-up Your Porch for Summer!

You don’t have to spend a lot of money to create an amazing outdoor space. Just a few small changes can makeover any front or back porch.

Blogger Bre Phelps with Chikkaboom shares three simple tips to punch up your porch!

Create Color!

When picking colors for outdoor wreaths, pots or furniture, think about contrasting colors. If you have a red brick house, you probably don’t want to waste your money on a red flower pot! Try a complimentary color like yellow, green or white. Bright colors are in!!

Go Green!

Don’t be afraid to “think outside of the crate”! Re-use and re-purpose old items giving new life to them and your outdoor space. This planter is an old $5.00 colander from a thrift store. A scrap of burlap, a few links of chain and some plants of your choice = a unique replacement for a $50.00 plastic pot that looks like every other one on the block.

Add Fun Furniture to Pull it All Together!

Quantity does not always equal quality… Larger items pack a bigger punch! Back away and try getting a “neighbors’ eye-view”.

Hope these tips help to resuscitate your outdoor space by giving it a breath of fresh air!
