My porch has been in desperate need of attention so I took one beautiful day (yesterday) to spruce it up. A coat of paint and a new plant stand and plant and all is well.
Unfortunately I couldn't remove the door knocker to paint it because the screws were stripped so I had to improvise. I used petroleum jelly on the door where I was going to be painting (I used a textured black spray paint on the knocker and handles). I didn't want the texture of the spray paint to show through the paint on the door so the jelly made it easy to wipe off the spray when I was finished.
Then I used left over paint from my kitchen to repaint the door....
Our patio chairs needed a fresh coat of paint so I used the textured spray paint to touch those up as well...
I picked up a stand from The Christmas Tree Shop (great store, they have everything and at great prices too)! Of course it got a spray treatment too and the plant I twist tied to the stand so it wouldn't blow off and finally I have a porch to be proud of...
Textured spray paint = $6.49
Table = $9.99
Plant = $4.99
Total = $21.47
