I saw you yawn. It's ok. It made me yawn too.
Then my son ran by me while playing tag with the neighborhood kids. He was wearing a bright neon green shirt and it got my creative juices flowing. I drove to the local hardware store and after staring at the many, many colors of spray paint I decided on two really fun colors ~ Green Apple and Orange.
Next stop was the fabric store. I purchased two foam pads for $10 each bought 2 yards of outdoor fabric which was on clearance. Oh how I love clearance! The fabric came to $8.
Last but not least, I had my eye on a big paper mache letter "F". With only one left, I grabbed it as I knew I would kick myself later if I didn't. Even the $10 price tag on the letter didn't deter me - I knew it would work perfectly for what I wanted to do.
Once I was home I got to work. The longest part of the process was taping off the furniture for the spray painting. After the painting, I tackled the pillows and then the monogram.
Without further ado, here is what I created in a single weekend. No more boring front porch!
I LOVE how the color pops bringing cheerfulness to our entry!
Many things I found laying around the house and repurposed them. The great thing about paint is you can always change it. It's that easy!Shortly after I finished, my neighbors wandered over and told me how much they love looking at my front porch and it brings a smile to their faces. And that brought a smile to mine.
