Late last year, we decided to separate the front porch into zones. It was a total game changer and gave us so much more space than we were previously using. The section with the vintage wicker couch was my favorite. I knew I loved it because I never wanted to change it up. The zone on the other end of the porch was a totally different story. I’ve tried several different options like these wicker chairs
and this glass table set we used over the summer.
I knew the glass table set was way too big for the space but I didn’t have anything I was ready to replace it with yet. We were picking through the garage a few weeks ago when I spotted 2 twin headboards I’d been storing for a while. I mean years. I used one of the headboards at my booth as a message board. Thankfully, my bestie S was able to build a bench for me out of the headboards.
I know it looks like a hot mess now but the details were just too pretty to let these pieces hold court in the garage.
Since my heart speaks in neutrals, I chose to leave the back of the bench painted with black chalkboard paint. I used a sample pot of paint in a shade of off white and Bauhaus Buff for the bench seat. It’s very slight but you can see the variation in color on the seat.
I piled on the pillows,
added a freshly painted white wicker table,
and a white wicker chair.
I’m excited to say it’s been a few weeks now and I have no desire to change things up which is a really good sign. It feels like this is the way the porch was supposed to look all along.
See you guys back here tomorrow. I’m sharing one last bit of autumn apple inspiration.
