The Yellow Porch

Here are a few pictures of my spring porch makeover. I just completed it today. What a gorgeous day to be outside working on my front porch. My hands are absolutely covered with yellow paint even after several thorough washings. It looks like I’ll be sporting yellow hands at work tomorrow.

My inspiration for this project was the adorable tulip themed rug from; I couldn’t resist those bright colors. I purchased the pillows, chair cushions, and accessories at Pier1Imports. The white bistro table is from Target. It will make a fine place to sip a cup of coffee or work on the computer. I purchased the flowers for the wreath at Michael’s Craft Store; the orange polka-dotted flowers and ribbon were too fun to pass up.

It took me three days to complete this project–one day of shopping and two days of painting.

    So what kind of paint did you use for the yellow chairs? Spray or regular? I have an old wooden chair I want to paint to sit outside on my porch as a plant stand. Any suggestions?

      I used Rustoleum spray paint. For each chair it typically takes two full cans of paint to get good, even coverage. I paint the underside, too. You can use regular latex paint if you have a power sprayer or a paint brush, but that’s much more tedious and time consuming. Will you be posting pictures on your blog?
