Front Porch Swing Update

Southern living is all about the front porch. In any southern home, especially a historic home such as mine, a front porch swing is a great option for seating and a perfect place to create a gathering space for your family. I partnered with The Home Depot to a create an antique-inspired front porch swing that I can use with my husband and new baby Jackson. Are you looking to recreate your own DIY Front Porch Swing Party with some antique style? I have all the tips you need to get started with help from some great products at The Home Depot.

DIY Porch Swing Update

Step 1: Style Your Swing

I styled my Hinkle Chair Company 2-Person Daybed Wooden Porch Patio Swing with a mix of modern and antique style by using a thrifted vintage quilt with modern southern pillows from Home Depot including the Hampton Bay Black/Oatmeal Trellis Square Outdoor Throw Pillow I kept the color palette neutral so it is easy to dress it up for any holiday such as New Years, Christmas or event Easter.

Step 2: Paint with Spray

Using spray paint from Rust-Oleum is an any easy to add a unique look to your porch swing lounge. I used Rust-Oleum Stops Rust 12 oz. Protective Enamel Gloss Sunrise Red Spray Paint and for the side tables I used 12 oz. Hunter Green Gloss General Purpose Spray Paint.

For a vintage style to my pre-made porch swing, I added antique metal accents with Liberty Antique Brass Weave Pattern Round Cabinet Knob and Satin Nickel Dual Mount Cup Drawer Pull.

Step 4: Use Floor Tile & Molding Uniquely

I wanted to continue with the antique theme throughout my front porch swing and used Great Lakes Tin Hamilton 2 ft. x 2 ft. Nail-up Tin Ceiling Tile in Argento to cover up blemishes on a thrifted glass table and it goes perfectly with my Old Dutch 5 gal. Decor Copper Lion’s Head Beverage Cooler.

I also utilized some of my favorite New Year’s Eve Traditional Southern dishes in my favorite Old Dutch 12 oz. Mint Julep Cups in Solid Copper.

Step 5: Make Your Swing the Centerpiece

Your swing should be the start of the party. Place your tables and chairs to anchor the swing. I can’t get enough of my Hinkle Chair Company 2-Person Daybed Wooden Porch Swing.
