How to reFresh your Porch

Refresh your porch!


Several areas outside my house need freshening up, I am starting with the porch. This is a pretty and practical do-it-yourself projects that anyone can do.  I have this beauty that my daughter bought me a long time ago and I can’t wait for you to see what I did!


It’s a great piece,  just the wrong color and it had been broken but someone repaired it.

Let me show you how I freshened it up!

You’ll need:

Spray paint

Sand paper


Object to be painted

This project cost me $0.00, zero.  I had everything and those kind of DIY projects make me very happy!

Sand your piece, clean and dry it.  Now you’re ready to spray paint.  I had all the supplies out so I painted a vase too!  Why not?

I have painted several glass/ceramic pieces and they have held up great.

Now you are ready to decorate with your piece.


What a difference and see how good the colors look together now.

The free colorful decor is complete.

I am so excited about my free makeover!

  6. It’s fun to see what spray paint can do to change something to a solid fresh color.
    That’s why I love thrifting…always on the hunt for something to transform.
    Your color choices are always happy.
    Your Nostalgia furniture post was beautiful.
