If you’re looking for easy, inexpensive DIY porch and garden projects for the summer, you’ve come to the right place! 



Summer is the perfect time for completing some fun projects. Getting outside and working on projects is one of my favorite things about summer!

I love to plant flowers, vegetables and just make our house feel more like a home. I get so many compliments on our front porch, too.

It’s one of those big southern porches, even though we live in the midwest, with rocking chairs, a porch swing, lots of flowers and a Wythe Blue front door that was even featured on BHG.com.
