I’m so excited because the apartment I’ve been on the waiting list for (forever) is now down to 1 person before me. I’m going to have a front porch and a back porch, and unlike here, they’ll both be private. That’s a pretty big deal because I’m an outdoor person. So, with an end in sight, I ordered the cutest wicker rockers with a table for my front porch. They’ve not arrived yet, but I thought while I waited it would be the perfect time to get out my mean green and give my current front porch a sunny makeover. With some spray paint and my favorite cleaning products, I now have a fun place I can head outdoors with my laptop, which I really like. After taking some before photos, I was pretty ashamed that I let my little front porch space get so cluttered. I didn’t even have room to sit outside and enjoy the fresh air.
Feel my shame…
I love how clean everything turned out and how a few cans of spray paint brightened the space up. I threw away dead plants and bought a 4 tier shelf on Amazon to move the plants upward since outward space is an issue here. This table will go in the back at my new apartment (maybe here as well) and with some string lights, I can see myself sitting outdoors with my camera, a book, or even my laptop, day and night. All I need is a little cocktail (and tons of gnat and mosquito spray) to help me relax and enjoy the great outdoors. After a cold winter and a wet spring, I’m due for some outdoor time.
My to-do list isn’t over yet but I’m putting a dent in it. Spring cleaning accomplished indoors, and a porch refresh outdoors. Next up, I will be tackling my back patio and I can’t wait to find a way to make it look more spacious. The cleaning part will be easy of course, Mean Green to the rescue. And then, I’m going to scrub this Georgia red clay off my car tires.
Care to share? I’d appreciate a repin please and thanks.
From drab to fab. D.I.Y. Bistro Table & Porch Refresh with Mean Green.
What ways have you been using Mean Green to tackle your summer to-do list?
I’m proud to be a Mean Green Product Ambassador which means I received product samples for this post.
How fab! And what a great idea to revamp such an old style coloured set into a beautiful summery design. Go you!
Wow! I love the color chose of your DIY bistro table. It looks so fresh and the owl vase is so cute as well.
What a wonderful post! I haven’t heard of this product but it seems amazing. Thanks for sharing! 🙂
I like spending lots of time in my backyard too. I try to be as Eco friendly as I can when it comes to grown plants in my backyard and taking care of the grasses. I also built a planter box too. I guess the next project for me is to tackle the furniture.
Wow, what a wonderful idea. You did a great job! I Love that colour you chose, what a great way to brighten up the garden. Thanks for sharing this.
Your garden is very cool and i enjoyed your post,it s a shame because i live in a flat without a garden and i wish to do things like you,maybe in the future i will do ,i m waiting for more blog posts like this
Such a lovely scene to behold love the way the garden is all knitted up and the color you chose for the decor sure looks amazing.
Oh how lovely! I Love that colour you chose, what a great way to brighten up the garden. I would love to do this!
You really gave that table porch some great makeover. Totally love the color you picked, makes it look lively and pop even more.
This porch refresh is so awesome. I love the color that you chose for the table and chairs!
wow, what a wonderful idea. How did I never though of this? We throw away ours last summer as we had it for over 10years. BTW your color scheme is pretty cool.
The color makes a huge difference. Love it. The cart is cute too.
You did a great job! That teal color is so pretty!
My husband and I love these kind of DIY projects!!! This is so rad!!!
Maybe I can use Mean Green to wipe off grease from our car’s windshield too. I have used several cleaning agents and nothing worked.
I always see Mean Green in the store but never really took a chance and tried it out. It seems like a great cleaning option to have around for some of those tough stains.
It is so funny because Mean Green is on my list this week for when I go grocery shopping. With my kids being out for the summer, they make big messes so I need Mean Green to clean up some messes.
I love this color for anything! Your new patio will look amazing!
This looks lovely! I love the color big time! I am buying a house this week that has an adorable covered front porch, something like this would look perfect! Time to go dusty hunting and give this idea a try!
Hopefully it’s not long until you are front of the waiting list. I love the colour that you went for and it’s great how a refresh and a colour change gave you a brand new porch
Obsessed with this color! It totally fits your outdoor aesthetic too. What a DIY queen
I’ve never used or heard of this product but it sounds like it works well. Not sure if it’s even in my country but may give it a try if i can find it.
