I knew this was going to happen!
I loved this color since the first time they said it was going to be the " color of the year".
Every summer I decorate my front door in red, white and blue, but this year I wanted something different.
So, I decided to give this new color a try.
I will be doing the Patriotic theme on my back porch since it is where we will be spending
our 4th of July celebration.
It all started when I found this fabric.
I saw it across the store and it was love at first sight! :)
I knew I had to bring it home with me and this is what I did with it.
And mixed it up a little bit with some drop cloth material
and a little stenciling and some Teal.
I just think both colors look so pretty together.
After I was done making the pillows, I found myself needing a new wreath
for the front door.
Isn't that the way it always happens?
So, I went "shopping" in my storage closet.
I asked my daughter to make me some fabric flowers with some
material I already had and some left over from the pillows.
Wrapped a little burlap around the wreath I already had, added some other flowers
I also found in my closet and a little teal ribbon for some added color.
And this is what it looks like
Even my candle got a little makeover
Then, I found these pretty flowers at Michael's, so I used them to fill my planters.
And this is what it looks like together.
Is it bright? Yes, it is!!!
You can probably see my porch from space! LOL
Even my plant in the corner got a little tangerine color.
I just used a plate I found at the Dollar Tree.
I think I may stencil or paint the pot this weekend when I have a little more time.
I only bought the material and the flowers and they were both on sale 50% off,
so total cost of this project was $14.00.
Not a bad price to give your porch a little update for the summer.
So this is what I have been up to this week.
Now that it finally stopped raining, I hope to get the back porch done in a few days.
I hope you guys are having a great week!
