Last year we took our front porch from a baby blue, awkwardly sized eyesore to something slightly more updated by simply adding new deck boards and making it larger. This year we’ve taken one extra step towards making this porch a space we love with the addition of two modern rocking chairs from Article!
Here is what the porch originally looked like…
See what I mean about the baby blue? And the size was awkward because it didn’t go to the edge of the brick on the right, plus the giant bushes were really not doing anything for us!
Also, the lighting, house number and mailbox all got swapped because I just could not live with those any longer.
A good improvement, for sure, but I had to take it a step further and paint the window frame, and then bring in some furniture to fill the space since we do like to sit out here!
We still have plans to make some changes out here, but for now, having the Eleya rocking chairs from Article has made a HUGE difference! See what I mean?
We also added two Tress white washed trays under the rocking chairs to keep things like extra blankets, pillows, or any other little things we might need up here but don’t necessarily want to leave out. Because this porch is partially covered, we don’t need to worry too much about these getting wet (they’re not meant to be outdoors, so if you don’t have a covered area, keep them indoors).
I think my favourite thing about these chairs is how high they are and how INSANELY COMFORTABLE! The cushions are supportive, but soft enough that I could totally nap on these.
I did also toss some Belez Yuma Mink Taupe pillows on the chairs, but those will likely be put indoors because they’re too pretty, and I don’t want them to get damp from the rain or humidity in the Summer.
Overall, We’re so much happier with this front porch now, and super excited we get to use this space as the weather gets warmer and warmer!
Thanks so much to Article for sponsoring this post! I am so thrilled with the pieces we got, and truly love them!
