Hey guys! Well, for a while now I have been working on perfecting our back porch. A few months ago I posted my initial makeover {HERE}, but have made quite a few changes since. I originally started with a red and brown color scheme, but always knew I needed one more accent color to make it all work. It all started when I found my navy blue seat cushions at Ross. They were $9.99 for the chair cushions and $19.00 for the couch cushion. ( I later found the exact same set online at Target for like $70! – crazy!) I knew I couldn’t pass up a deal like that, so I just went with it! From then on, everything just fell into place:) I began painting things navy left and right! I brought my old coffee table outside, revamped an old side table {seen here}, and bought a few navy/nautical accents at Marshalls and Ross.  I also added a DIY light fixture over my table {seen here}, switched out the rug to a more neutral option, and added another light fixture between our rocking chairs that I will be posting about soon. With just a few affordable DIY updates, the space was completely transformed and also much more cohesive in my opinion. Scroll down to see a list of where I found my items.

Here are a few pictures of my back porch’s journey! 
{ After }
And here it is today!
Where I found my items:
Large area rug – Lowes
Jute area rug – Ross
Red Hanging Lantern – Lowes
Red Curtains – Wal-Mart
Navy Blue Pillows – Target
Red Stripped Pillows – Garden Ridge
Seat Cushions – Ross
Stripped Accent Stools – TJ Maxx
Plate Chargers – Marshalls
Navy Blue Plates – Marshalls
So what do y’all think of the navy?? I’m kind of obsessed with Navy right now, so it sure makes me smile! I have also extended this design concept to the rest of our back yard as well. That post will be on its way soon!
Hope everyone had a fabulous weekend:) Happy Sunday!

  2. The last is truly for the best! Personally, the latest arrangement you did was the most comfortable. I religiously use our porch for relaxing, and relaxing alone. I’m pretty confident I can loosen up on those rocking chairs with cute cushions. Thumbs up! 😀 –>Leif
