Spring Porch Makeover

Without Any Sewing

For your spring porch makeover, learn how Rhonda, author of Ramblings of a Southern Girl (formerly Scooter Blu's Whimsy) transformed her small contemporary porch into a bright and cheerful entrance for spring.

She used a no-sew method and got great results.

Here is how she did it...

Before and After the Porch Makeover


Rhonda's porch is attractive the way it was but she wanted to dress it up for spring. The purple berry wreaths on the front door were purchased during an after-Christmas sale at Kmart some years before.

Black flower pot

Like any good porch makeover, Rhonda removed everything from the porch, cleaned, and painted where necessary - even the pot!

She wanted to keep the giraffe pillows to be used again and didn't want to purchase new pillow forms.

To make this possible she decided to recover them in black and yellow polka dot fabric which she could easily remove.

Although Rhonda can sew she wanted an easier and faster method of making the pillow cases. So, instead of needle and thread she decided on using a glue gun!

No-sew project pillow

Rhonda cut the fabric to fit the pillow and with the wrong sides out, glued the seams together. After turning the fabric right side out she stuffed the pillow inside and hot-glued the remaining seam. The seam couldn't look any better or straighter, with any machine stitching!

Final Touches!
For the rest of the spring porch makeover, Rhonda found the yellow stems at Dollar Tree and filled the black planters with them. The two black and yellow polka dot pillows are complete and resting on her black iron settee, a thrifty treasure that her father bought at an auction.

The pansies in the black pot, have been replaced with yellow gerbera daisies and ornamental sweet potato vines. The yellow will tie in much better once the daisies fill out and start blooming.

To make her spring porch makeover even more appealing she added more stems of yellow flowers along with black, yellow, & white bows to the planters.

And, she plans to add a yellow pillow later...made with a glue gun, of course!

May Rhonda's porch makeover ideas inspire you to create a new look for your porch no matter the season. You'll add loads of curb appeal to your home. Our heartfelt thanks to Rhonda, author of Ramblings of a Southern Girl.
