Vintage Americana Summer Screen Porch

I’m so excited to share my summer screen porch with you today!  This year my focus for this space is vintage Americana and was inspired by a few vintage treasures I picked up earlier this spring!

I love to decorate this porch for each season.  It’s not a fancy porch, but I love it just the way it is.  My furniture on the porch is all vintage.   You can read about my vintage metal glider and chairs HERE.  The swing is from my grandmother’s home, and I used to swing on it all the time when I was little.

So, here are the main pieces that inspired me for this vintage Americana look!   This adorable vintage, red Radio Flyer scooter is from a local antique mall.  Can you believe it was only $10!!!

Vintage Red Ice Chest

And, then I saw this vintage, circa 1950’s, red Pleasure Chest!  First, that name just about cracked me up!!!  I loved the white words on the bright red ice chest!  So fun!   The smaller vintage Vagabond drink cooler is something I picked up last fall.  You can see how I used it HERE at Christmastime.

As you can see, I couldn’t stop taking pictures of this little corner vignette.  You can’t really see it in the photo below, but I used a wooden industrial spool as a small table between the swing and the glider.  Sitting on top of it is a vintage enamelware basin filled with pretty blue and white flowers!

I made the plaid pillows on the glider.  For the blue check – I used two Pottery Barn 20 x 20″ napkins.  The fabric for the red and white plaid pillow is from a tablecloth!

You really can’t see my curtains – they got washed out from the bright sunlight.  But, they are another easy sewing project.  I filled my white-washed clay pots with red and white flowers for the wire window baskets.

I have a tutorial for the rope knot HERE.  The white-washed, wooden star was one I had left over from the star garland on my mantle HERE.

Finally, I brought out a vintage quilt and threw it over the back of the swing for those cool summer evenings.   And, the basket of larkspur will make a nice flower arrangement for inside.

I hope you enjoyed seeing my vintage Americana screen porch!
