{The Abode} Annual Porch Refresh

It seems like every Spring we need to refresh the porch a bit. Winter takes it's toll on it and it's usually in need of some TLC.
Spring has also left it's mark on the porch and furniture..lots of pollen!
We also have lots of green mold. Lovely!
While we're waiting for the power washers to arrive, I zhuzhed it up a bit with a new (yet very old) ladder. I told my friend that I was looking for an old ladder for photo shoots and she had one for me. Score!
 I think it makes a nice display shelf on the porch too.  I grabbed a few things to place on the ladder rungs.  I'm sure I'll be tweaking this as summer progresses.
 The chairs got cleaned and we added a new rug from Target. The original rug I bought from Michael's was too big.  The outdoor pillows came from Michael's.  It's amazing what some flowers and greenery can do to perk up a space.  I brought a plant outside that hasn't been great inside. We'll see how it fares.
 I need to fill this ladder up with more plants and flowers.
 A new watering can in a bright, fun color (from Ikea) always freshens up the space.
 That green tea tin makes a great fresh cut flower holder, I just added a small mason jar with water to hold the stems.  I love the color!
Once it gets power washed and put back together, it's going to be even more spiffy!

Heather, love the darling things you have on your porch. The ladder is so stinking cute. Oh girl, I so need to clean up my front porch. I have let it go. Marty did pressure wash it recently and Oh my! The pollen was horrible! Maybe this post will inspire me! LOL! Hugs and blessings, Cindy
