Target Finds That Will Spruce Up Your Porch with Farmhouse Style in a Flash
Once you have the elements down, refreshing your porch for the season is as simple as swapping a wreath and, come the holidays, rolling up the string lights in favor of the twinkling variety. Start with simple Target porch furniture and begin transforming your porch or patio into a farmhouse-style escape that will become your new favorite space. Each of these elements works wonders on their own, but they can just as easily work all together if you’re looking for a full-on porch overhaul. Because we love a farmhouse, we couldn’t help ourselves when it came to pulling together a look that screams of a shiplap paradise just beyond the front door. If you’re more cottage, boho, or contemporary, just select an element or two that work with your existing vibe. It might be just the ticket for the porch upgrade you’ve been looking for.

A table of any variety—just as long as it can hold a drink—is a Southern porch necessity. This concrete hourglass accent table can hold a sweating cocktail and a small arrangement or potted plant. If you ask us, that’s called porch perfection.

A good wreath will see you through all seasons if necessary, though we’re not averse to switching them out seasonally. This faux eucalyptus version makes a lush finishing touch for the entry. You’ll be as impressed as we were with the quality for the price point.
