Recently, Jason’s mom graciously gave us a metal bench for our front porch; I like to think that my “nightmare” post had nothing to do with it. Regardless, we are very grateful and can’t wait to enjoy our morning coffee sitting on the porch, snuggled together under a homemade quilt (also “donated” by Jason’s mom).
I haven’t seen it yet due to the extensive clean up of our front porch (in progress), but I believe it may look similar to this:

Since I have been on a colour kick, the thought of transforming this beautiful black metal bench into a colourful master piece is too tempting to pass up. Now, settling on a colour is the hardest part of this transformation so I thought why not take a poll?
First let’s set the mood….
Here is the mood board for our front porch (the green square is the colour of our siding):
Here is a sample of the fabric that Jason’s mother gave to us for the seat cushions (image taken from here):
Here are the colours I think would play of nicely with the green siding (colour samples were taken from bing images):
And last but not least, here is a picture or Molly
Of course, she has nothing to do with this post but she loves laying on the front porch and I also wanted to make sure you were still with me. 😉
Take your time, ponder the choices and cast your vote OR leave a comment and tell me what colour you would paint the bench. Who knows – we may just choose your suggestion and dedicate a post to you in our bench makeover.
