Finally, warmer weather is here and I’m able to get some outdoor areas freshened up. Outdoor living areas are a wonderful way to soak up the sun and linger into the evening. Our bloggers brought some fantastic inspiration from their own homes and shared ideas for summer porch decor.
A Texan Summer Patio
Lisa from the Purple Hydrangea shared her covered patio all decked out for summer with a mix-and-match furniture, bright pops of color, and a handmade sitting bench. The headboard turned bench is quite striking against all the beautiful brick.
Charming Handmade Herb Shelf
Patti from Old Things New designed and built a gorgeous outdoor shelf blending both new and old items with architectural salvaged corbels. She shared sources and details for how she built her patio shelf.
A Rustic Cottage Flower Box Tutorial
Michelle from The Painted Hinge shared a tutorial for making a clean draining planter box. Any wooden box will be suitable for planting flowers using this technique! The textures of the wood against the colorful flowers are pure natural beauty.
Summer Decor Accessories for a Pergola
Betty from My Cozy Corner, one of our lovely Thursday Favorite Things hostesses, also shared how she spruced up her summer patio using simple bunting and a few pots of flowers. She is hard at work prepping for a big birthday bash.
Pretty Summery Drink Recipes
Ginger from Ginger Wroot shared summer recipe for a margarita but with a little twist. Chambord seems to always be a secret ingredient in kicking the classics up a notch.
