Farmhouse Style

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.
