Hey, y’all! Welcome back to Sweet Sorghum Living. Today on the blog, we are chatting about transforming a swing with pillows + tips for styling with them. So, grab a good cup of coffee or nice glass of wine and sit a spell with me on the front porch swing *smile*

Pillow shams + cheap sleeping pillows are perfect for a covered front porch. When the shams get dirty, toss them in the washer, and they are as good as new. I love finding cute pillows with fun sayings.

Buy pillows that are versatile. I can easily move my pillows from the swing to the rockers. I even mix and match the ones that are on my outdoor sofa with the ones on the swing. It is an easy way to create new looks without spending more money…and that is always a good thing *smile*

I love mixing patterns.

Styling a swing is no different than styling an outfit. As my daughter always says on her blog, "Accessories make all the difference." And the pillows are the accessories *smile*

Thanks so much for sitting a spell with me today as we looked at several ways to style a front porch swing. My best advice is to be creative, don’t shy away from bright colors and bold patterns, and mix those patterns! A porch should be inviting and cozy, and the best way to create that feel is with pillows *smile*
