Spring/Summer Front Porch Ideas

How do you like the table display?  The table top is really an old medicine cabinet mirror that I picked up from the thrift shop for $3.  I sat it on top of TV/valet tray bottom that I also found at the thrift store for a few bucks.  Both had been sitting in the garage for a while when I decided to pair them up....

I like the reflection you get from the mirror

I added a plant to the vase sitting under the table.

This cute welcome sign was revealed in another project a few weeks ago.  You can read about it here.

Love using old ladders for display!  This is the perfect size for a porch.

Your porch looks wonderful! Isn't it satisfying to put two unrelated things together and get something that works just right? Love your thrift store combo. I'm jealous of all your perfect mulch. We still have to get to that. Have a great day!

Thanks Laura and Jennifer - I'm glad it's finally done and we can now enjoy it all summer!

What an adorable ladder! Love the way you arranged the plants on it! You have created such an inviting space...I just want to sit down in one of those rockers and enjoy some lemonade. :-) Visiting you from DIY Showoff, so happy to be now following!

Jealous of your live-in porch. I just have a stoop. My favorite is the ladder! Came over from Live, Laugh...
