#DIY #Porch #Swing #Fabric #Pad #Cover Use what you've got & save #money

                                                         Do you have a porch?
          Front or back porch, it doesn't matter because it's a place to relax & watch life go by!
      Here is eastern Tennessee, we have always enjoyed a porch to sit on and the peace it brings.
         Almost every home I ever recall living in as a child, had a porch to enjoy whether it was big, small, open, closed in etc.
           And the good thing about porches are that they can be enjoyed on any type home, be it a fancy one, or just a plain ole country home.
          They really reflect a persons personality I think.  I love looking at porches as I pass by homes.
                     The ideas you can gain by how they decorate them, is just numerous.
            Some of the most peaceful times can be spent sitting on a porch watching the birds flutter by or whistling their tune, the sound of the rain hitting the tin roof (that's my favorite) or watching the cars go by, the kids playing in the yard, wind-chimes dinging, the scent of the honeysuckle as the breeze blows by etc.
                 We have a tiny opened front porch that is peaceful to enjoy the view from it of the beautiful mountains.                                                         
And no matter what season it is, I can enjoy viewing colored leaves, blooming flower trees & even lovely snow covered everything as this is my view seen from that tiny open front porch.                               

         And one day back in April while sitting on that porch, I seen & captured God's pretty hummingbird feeding on my feeders

           My hubby is about to go surgery for colon cancer & his re-coop time will be a lenghty one.
And while I am more of an outdoor porch sitter than he is, I know he will appreciate all these beautiful things the eye can enjoy while lounging on a porch.
            With Summer here, I just love knowing that I can enjoy either of my porches to stay still, stay positive, stay in prayer & stay in peace that just a few minutes outside on them can provide.
             I have made new fabric covers for just about all of my outside items such as chair cushions, table clothes, even umbrella fabric draped over to hide the faded umbrella that's not that attractive any more.   I did a western matching theme here for my front porch for red bandanna designed fabric.  I just clip the umbrella circled fabric cover over it and use clothes pins to hold it on. That way I can remove it as well as the table cover & cushion and wash it as needed. The only thing missing here is a Big Ole Country Wooden Rocker ;)

And from here not only can I see the mountain peaks line backdrop, I can enjoy God's beauty found in a birds nest build within my dwarf Indian Blood peach tree that I planted years ago in honor of my mom.
                             My beautiful pink rose bush
                 I've actually made two porch sitting areas and two patio areas on each of the sides of the house.   And I'd love to add a new rolled out attached house side wall awning to our open patio area and a new fire-pit to our other side wall open ground area for enjoyment.                         

           But for now I will direct you  to my back porch, which is my favorite place/porch to enjoy. Because it is screened in and I don't have to worry about flies, gnats, misquotes, wasps etc. bothering me. When I do see an occasional one I use my handy dandy fly swat for that! Every porch needs a fly swat :) But I'd like to find a small bug sapper for that spot as well.
            I've had this metal porch swing for a long time. My daughter tossed it out when the cushions & awning dry rotten from the lengthy sun espoused.
            I knew I could recover it, which I have done so twice now. The first time in a rust stretchy fabric & now I have taken that off and made me a country rooster theme fabric coverings for it.

            And here is where my #DIY  comes in to encourage you to make a new cover for yours too in the awning cover & the chair pad cover/feel soft pad. By using things you already have and not have to spend extra money on fabrics.
          What did I use?  Well, I took old table clothes, fabric panel squares, old curtains, and Remnant fabric pieces, old fiberfill stuffing from a body pillow, along with a child's comforter & made my complete set with even matching pillows.
              I first took my tape measure, pen & paper & went outside & measured my awning, then the width & length of my swing seat. I allowed extra inches for the hang over of the awning.
                             Lets start with the awning cover first.........
                I took an old table cloth that was cotton in a checkered pattern & some old brown curtains & ripped them apart and placed them together to match my awning size & sewed them together.  I made sure my brown fabric was long enough to create an over hang when lapped it over the bar frame. I sewed fabric ties to it's under neath side so I could tie it on my awning bars. 
For the Pad for the swing seat, I took pieces of the same checkered table cloth, my 2 fabric panel squares & some matching rooster fabric remnants & sewn it all together in the size I had measured for earlier. I added a solid color brown fabric piece to it's back side. 
And then I left one end open (like a pillow case) so I can add my soft inside layer to it.
                       What did I use for the inside as a stuffing / padding?  Well, batting is expensive so to save money, I took an old child's toddler bed comforter that I had and just placed it inside my cover I had just made.It fit it perfectly! I used Velcro sewn strips to the bottom so I can remove it and wash it if needed. But you can sew on fabric ties if you like.
                        For the pillows, I used 2 more fabric panel squares & red rooster fabric remnants for the back side, left one end open so I can stuff in my poly fill.
                         Again, poly fill batting whether it is the filling kind or the flat piece kind, is somewhat costly depending on how much you need. So I, took an old body pillow, tore-off the cover to it & cut as much as I needed to stuff within my 2 tiny pillows. The filling inside was solid, a bit messy looking, but it was clean from where I had washed & dried my body pillow. So I cut what I needed across & it was much like thick sheep skin sheering but you just cut the amount you need & stuff it in your pillows. Then close shut by sewing the open end by hand, by machine etc. I used the machine.

                          When all completed, I love my country theme look for my screened in back porch.

               I opened my screen door and took a picture for you to see my cozy spot better :)
We put indoor outdoor carpet on the floor of it so all those pestful insects can't find there way through the cracks. But If I sit right there in that swinging porch seat & look forward about 20 feet, I can spot what you see below in my picture taken a couple of years ago. When a doe deer mother & her two fawns lingered and played there on my bank at the woods edge for almost 30 minutes. 
     I snapped that picture through the screen so that's why it's not good quality.
                 So, if your porch swing needs a new fabric cover or the awning has lost its appeal then just use what you've got already & make a new one to enjoy for the summer. It's easy and will let your porch sitting be comfy & pretty.
                    Now my next  idea is to get me some string lights out there to enjoy in the late evenings for Summer :)
                                                                   Y'all enjoy your summer ~
                   I know that hubby will be comfy on our porches as he rest to re-cooperate.
Well, that's my thinking as I made it comfy for him to enjoy. A few things I plan on adding to the area are potted plants, a small water fall potted item, maybe some wind twirlers or chimes to the outside over hang. Those are the summer products that give you enjoyment in the sight & sound they create while resting on your comfy porch. So be sure to come back soon because I'll add those projects to share with you as well & give you some Summer outdoors inspiration.

#Victor® Mini PestChaser® Rodent Repeller with NightLight -3 Pack Review & #USA #Giveaway

Disclosure* This sponsored product review & #USA #giveaway is brought to you today by
All opinions expressed here are 100% my own & no other compensation has been received to facilitate this blog hostess post. 
Thank you to my readers, and new visitors who have stopped by today to learn about this #New #PestChaser #Repeller #product  & Don't leave without entering below for your chance to win the product you see photoed here below :) 

Continuing their commitment to  keeping families safe and homes rodent-free,  Victor®, a world leader in rodent control, has taken a good thing and made it even better.  The Victor Mini PestChaser, an ultrasonic rodent repellent that emits high frequency sound waves to effectively repel rodents, is now available with a convenient, built-in night light.  When plugged-in to a standard 110V-AC wall outlet, the rodent repeller not only keeps rodents away, but also provides a soft glow to darkened rooms.

The Mini PestChaser’s mini size and discreet design make the rodent repeller ideal for use in bedrooms, kitchens, living rooms, dining rooms and anywhere a little extra light is needed. Humane and easy-to-use, simply plug the Mini PestChaser into the lower socket of any wall outlet to safely repel rodents.

“The Mini PestChaser emits ultrasound at varying volumes and frequencies that prevent rodents from becoming accustomed to the ultrasound,” says Andrea Cober, Category Development Associate at Victor. “The noise from the repeller sounds like a jackhammer to mice and rats, but the sound is imperceptible to humans and non-rodent pets.  Since you can’t hear the sound, the nightlight illuminates showing the unit is working properly.”

For optimal rodent control, place one Mini PestChaser in each average-size room or area where signs of rodent activity have been observed.  Because ultrasound cannot travel through solid surfaces such as walls, floors and cabinets, the rodent repeller should be placed in an open, unobstructed area.  To use, clear surrounding objects and plug the PestChaser with Night Light into a wall outlet near the entrance to the room.  Reduction in rodent activity should occur within 6-10 days.    

In order to be truly effective, a pest control effort needs to use several different tools and methods. First, rid your space of rodents using one of the many solutions offered by Victor.  Whether your preference is poisons or snap, electronic or live traps, there is a solution to fit every need. After the rodents are eliminated, use the Mini PestChaser to keep them away.

“Each Mini PestChaser uses less than a penny a day in energy costs, so they’re very cost effective,” says Cober.  “And the new built-in night light?  That’s the icing on the cake.”
 About Victor® RodentRecognized as a world leader in rodent control, Victor® has been a trusted brand for more than 100 years. The company revolutionized rodent control in 1898 with the invention of the spring-based Victor mouse trap. Today, Victor has produced more than one billion of the iconic mouse traps and now offers the broadest line of rodent control products on the market including traps, repellents and poison. Learn more at

#Blogger #REVIEW Product: I was able to review the 
#Victor® Mini PestChaser® Rodent Repeller with NightLight -3 Pack 
Do you have rodent pest problems? Whether it be inside your home, basement, or in your garage, outside porch areas etc.? 
       Well, for now I can't say that I have issues with them inside my home. But that's probably because we always try to keep every nook & cranny sealed up with  insulating foam sealants.
      Which helps to NOT letting those squeaky little or even big mice invade your indoor living space.  But, they certainly try to come in if you fail to keep areas sealed off or shut doors etc.
      They will try to come in for many reasons such as any type food source you have out at reach like, trash /food scraps, pet foods, garden seed packets etc. 
       Nice are always trying to find a place to nest and hide to stay out of cold or even hot temperatures and can find there way inside your car/outdoor garage areas where you store all your fun items like camping gear & tents, summer above ground pool, water slides, bounce houses, seasonal decorations, etc. 
       So don't give them a chance to move in and chew away all those needed items you look forward to using again year after year. 
        Instead, keep them ran off with the help of  the great products that can provide.
               The #Victor® Mini PestChaser® Rodent Repeller with NightLight -3 Pack  is a simple & effective way to do just that. 
                By simply plugging the  #mini unit  into a wall outlet, you can have maximum coverage that will chase away rodents with it's repellent use that omits a high frequency ultrasound  at varying volumes that peak up to 100db with varying frequencies that range from 32 to 62 khz. 
The technology of this product by Victor Pest prevents rodents from becoming accustomed to the ultrasound.
        +Factor Features of this  +Victor® Pest  product are:
               *Economical because it uses less than a penny a day in energy cost.
                *Easy To Use by plugging one in to any wall outlet.
                *Clean & Humane because it uses no chemicals or poisons
                *Pet-Friendly because it cannot be heard by humans and non-rodent pets.
                *Convenient because it can be used anywhere Indoors.

              I'm old school, so for me I always remember back in the 60's growing up the wooden mouse traps that my mom & dad use to use everywhere for indoor & outdoor use made by this well known trusted company.  It's nice to know that this company is still here and offering those and many other products for rodent control. And with technology now being so advanced and just better ways to combat such issues with pest control, I think this product is a great way to keep those pest at bay.
            And, you can find this same type product in differant sizes for larger areas to be effective
                  At the Victor Pest website
     I really liked the size of the product. This handy 3 pack also has a night light on each one.

     My thoughts were that the smaller collection of coordinated colorful cardboard boxes and 1 tin(the one on the top in my photo) the boxes housed a mixture of sweets, mixed nuts, meats cheeses were packaged cute & tasted fresh. 

                  I plan on gifting a few on them to someone special in a gift bag. Though the collection of this smaller spring themed tower of tasty delights would be fun to give as is, in the pretty bow that has it all stacked up into its quaint tower presentation. 
                                       A peek inside (and each snack choice is within closed clear sealed bags)

                        I like to enjoy things that can be reused. And these cute boxes & 1 tin within the total 10 inch high stacked Spring Flower Tower will make me cute boxes to store buttons, jewelry, little sewing kits etc. when the treats inside have been enjoyed.
                      So be sure to visit  and see what unique items catch your eye to treat your taste pallet or gift giving ideas enjoyed.
