Our house doesn't have a front porch per se (it's a saltbox house). But I wanted to bring a little color and interest to the area beside our front door. Enter the old porch chair above. I bought her at a yard sale for $2. She already had that country/rustic look, complete with dust and cobwebs! And was narrow enough to fit by our door without obstructing the entrance.
To add a little color, I brushed on some Valspar Atlantic Gray from my office table project. My goal wasn't to completely paint the chair, just give it the appearance of being weathered. I used a fine sand paper to distress the areas where the paint went on a little too heavy.
To the back of the chair, I tied a picture frame with a piece of burlap. The frame was a Goodwill buy from awhile ago. It was silver originally. I sprayed it with primer then painted it a buttercup yellow (FREE paint from Craigslist!).
