OPI On the Porch + a Giveaway!

Right after we planted Round Two of our baby garden, it started to rain – and rain and rain and rain. Our garden is going nuts (yeah!), but with the rain came cold weather, and so we find ourselves wishing and hoping that one day – someday soon! – we can enjoy our front porch for the season. Oh, Chicago, didn’t you know that it’s May?

Despite this turn of events, we moved forward with a mini makeover for the front porch – more of a sprucing up, really – in the off chance we might have one warm evening (we’re still waiting). Last summer we laid the groundwork, focusing on bright! and cheery!, but this year, we wanted to give it a more relaxed feel on a minimal budget:

OPI-porch-01

The more subtle color palette was completely inspired by our friends at Ace Hardware and the recent release of their new OPI paint colors by Clark+Kensington. Last year, we were turned onto our favorite black, Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine, having painted our porch swing in the popular nail hue (and our end tables and kitchen island), and this year, the deep greens and muted shades of pink from The Creative Genius collection had my heart. Below, top to bottom: Barefoot in Barcelona (OPI), Jade is the New Black (OPI), Bubble Bath (OPI) and Swiss Coffee, all by Clark+Kensington.

OPI-porch-02

We picked up a handful of Ikea pots, and I just free-handed the colors using a small foam brush along the bottom third of each. Each planter got three thin coats of paint using samples of Clark+Kensington paint in a satin enamel finish before I filled them up with succulents!

OPI-porch-03OPI-porch-04OPI-porch-05

We bought a 7″ plank of aspen, cut it to a 2′ length and after a quick stain job, Scott attached handles we already had on hand (from this dresser, which is still waiting on its makeover!). While our little centerpiece is cute to look at, we know we’ll need to move it to the side when the drinks are flowing (the whole point of a front porch, right?), so this will make it easy to shift it to one side or the other.

OPI-porch-06OPI-porch-07

In keeping with The Creative Genius color palette, I swapped out last year’s pillow cases for new, re-using all the pillow forms but choosing softer shades of pink, purple and green for the covers, all for around $5 at H&M. The banana leaf pillow was the only splurge (worth it), with the polka dot pillow being the lucky one that made the cut. That said, and with the exception of a new swing cushion and fern by our front door, all the larger items on our porch has remained the same!

    • Kim - May 13, 2015 - 11:59 AM
