Farmhouse Style

What could be easier than gathering your rusty, twiggy, worn out items and creating a Farmhouse Style seating area on the front porch? Well that’s exactly what I did, I have $5 invested in the whole project and that was spent on the beautiful pink perennial. While shopping at Lowes I couldn’t resist all the flowers in the garden center. I knew it was to cold here to start planting so I restrained myself and only purchased one pot of Neon Rose Saxifraga.

I used an old water can that a baseball mom gave me as my pot. When she brought it to my door step it was filled with annual petunias in bright purple and pink, after they died off for the winter I saved the can for just this purpose. A straw bale as my side table and a simple wicker chair make up one corner of the front porch.

You really don’t have to spend a ton of cash to get the look you like. I normally just sift through whatever is in the barn or basement and come up with something that will suit me just fine for a season. We are starting to get warmer days and it’s giving me the urge to do some outside work and decorating.

    Your porch looks lovely. Isn’t it wonderful to be doing outside things. I’ve been thinking about changing up the things I have on my front area by the door, haven’t finalized anything yet, just lots of ideas floating through my mind ๐Ÿ™‚

    I love the farmhouse style and how you made everything work so well together. I have two old wicker chairs and this is giving me some inspiration about how to put them to good use.
