Ben And Erin Napier Share Their Favorite Front Porch Feature
Ben and Erin Napier of HGTV’s “Home Town” believe that if you’re lucky enough to have a front porch, decorate it so that it feels as welcoming as the rest of your home.
Their favorite way to enhance a front porch is with a porch swing, since wooden swings add warmth, and can increase the amount of color in the space if painted
a bright shade.
Turning a bench into a swing can be as easy as removing the legs by unscrewing them or cutting them off at their intersection with the bottom of the seat.
You'll then need to drill holes in the front and back of the arms since these are where the chains or ropes will be installed, from which the bench will hang from the ceiling.
For a brighter touch, consider painting your bench a color like Valspar’s Sky Space, which is a beautiful medium blue shade Erin uses in Season 7, Episode 14.
