Old Fashioned Porch Swing Plans – If you’re seeking front porch ideas that will make your pooch the envy of your area, then I have three inspiring thoughts here. Two are front porch decorating ideas and the next is all about entertaining on your porch. I lately saw a porch makeover where a gorgeous mirror was hung onto a gorgeous contemporary porch. The mirror was hung from chains and reflected the outside. Imagine hanging a mirror onto your porch. Not just any mirror however, one that has an attractive frame. What would it reflect? Maybe some colorful hanging baskets hanging from your porch?

A mirror is a gorgeous accent you do not expect to see on a porch. However, as you probably have noticed, a growing number of people are creating outdoor rooms that are comfortable like the rooms within their homes.This porch I saw was no exception – it was superbly furnished with a wicker couch and striking white and red cushions. A mirror onto the porch is a conversation starter for certain. Just be certain to guarantee the mirror to your own porch so that it does not blow with the wind.

My second porch decorating idea is to use landscape lighting in the day to light up your porch. It bathes the plant in the day with a gentle glow. The homeowner can place the plant lamp on a timer. So imagine a very attractive seating area in your own porch that’s softly lit by lamps that show off your potted plants.
Or consider greenery or flowers in baskets that line your own porch measures and are illuminated in the day. How inviting would that be? A plant lamp may add the perfect glow to a porch in the day and create a welcoming tone. My third front porch idea is all about entertaining in your porch. How about turning a nice wooden picnic table to your beverage and appetizer buffet on your next porch party? I saw this idea in the book titled Perfect Porches.
. Then spread out your choice of wine bottles, sparkling juices, crystal wine glasses, pretty baskets full of fruit, cheeses, and crackers. Fill vases to the brim with fresh flowers from your garden. And yet another great touch is to place soft cushions on the picnic table seats.
