How to reFresh your Porch

This post is part of a social shopper marketing insight campaign with Pollinate Media Group® and All You, but all my opinions are my own. #lifeforless #pmedia http://cmp.ly/3/8vNxcO



While shopping at Target, I spotted one of my favorite magazines!  

All You is filled with coupons, recipes, decorating tips, and lots of other refreshing ideas.  


All You Magazine

All You  speaks my language when they say “Enjoy Life for Less”!  I really appreciate the affordable ideas, health and beauty tips and delicious recipes! If you flip through the magazine you’ll find easy to follow directions, challenges and guides for so many things.

An article about freshening up your garden caught my attention.  Several areas outside my house need freshening up, I am starting with the porch.  When I read: Pretty and practical do-it-yourself projects, it got me to thinking.  I have this beauty that my daughter bought me a long time ago and I’ve just been waiting for inspiration:


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.

Before accessories

Before I added the new old pieces.


After the addition of the garden stool and painted vase.

The free colorful decor is complete.

Time to relax and have some fun!  Come back Friday for a grilled dessert recipe that you’re sure to love!

I am so excited about my free makeover!  Thanks to All You Magazine for the inspiration!
