Summer is upon us …. Time to spruce up our porches with some Garden Style!
Shop your local flea markets, thrift shops, and antique stores to find inexpensive furniture
and décor. No sense in breaking the budget to decorate for the season. Have a look at some
“Garden Style” ideas from our local shops and vendors in Central Florida.
A weathered bench
This time worn bench from Peggy's Antiques at Renninger's is weathered to perfection! Beautiful birdhouses, sweet baskets and few potted plants will to complete the look.
Vintage window box
Want some one of a kind Garden Style, Try this re-purposing idea by Sylvia Kirchel of the Antiques Emporium in Cocoa, Florida.
While treasure hunting at local garage sales and flea markets she keeps an eye out for old windows and wooden tool boxes to make these vintage window boxes. Add some beautiful flowers or herbs and enjoy your new vintage window box. Great idea for your porch or garden room!
How to: Attach the window to the back of the tool box with screws. So simple and so much fun!
