Easy Outdoor Porch Decorations For Summer

Here are some easy outdoor porch decorations for summer with just a fresh coat of paint, recycled items and some flowers.

When I re-decorate a space I try to think of the easy, affordable and stylish ideas. For my outdoor space I analyzed the situation and found that all I needed was a fresh coat of paint for my table, my collection jars and pretty flowers. I wanted a botanical vibe. Botanical decor has a fresh, vibrant and soothing quality that makes the space so appealing.

Supplies: Outdoor Porch Decorations

  • Paint: Needed primer and white semi gloss paint: Since I paint I used what I had at home. But a combination paint with primer does save time.
  • Brushes: I used a wide and smaller brushes.
  • Flowers: I saved all the purple statice from my flowers bouquets.

Painting: Outdoor Porch Decoration

The table in my porch will be the focus. So by changing the color to white will make it stand out.

  1.  Sand the table. I used fine grit sand paper until every part of the table is done!
  2.  Spray  primer all over the table. Let dry for a few hours.
  3.  Sand again the entire table. Wipe off the wood dust!
  4.  With a brush I painted the table with semi gloss paint.

Jars & Flowers

I have been collecting mason jars of all different sizes. You can use empty jars as well. I love that shabby chic vibe it gives when you fill them with flowers.

Place a combination of greens and the purple statice inside the jars. Just a few to give that botanical feel. Plants and dried flowers is what makes the botanical decor, so whatever you have use it. I love drying my arrangements and that is something else you can do.
