Beachy Porch Reveal

I'm just about done with the finishing touches on our beachy porch theme.  I have a few more things to add like Dollar Store sand buckets, candle holder jars (with sand), citronella candle buckets and the anchor plaques.  Here we are as of today.
We spend a lot of time on our porch swing.  I bought the cushion from The Christmas Tree Shops.  It's not included in my $100 budget as I bought it before I set my budget/theme.  It was $29.99.  The pillows are from Pottery Barn outlet.  We picked them up last year.
I've shown this table and some of these pieces before.  Excuse my husband's beer cans in the FIRE bucket.  Doh!
Here is the whale my Dad made.  Pesky shadow in the photo doesn't do it justice.  He did a great job and I love it!  The hanging fish are from Gina at The Shabby Creek Cottage's Etsy shop.  I bought them in watermelon and blue a couple of years ago.  I love both colors but chose to use the watermelon ones for this theme.
Other side of the porch.  My Target Threshold ottoman ($35.99 with 10 percent off) landed today.  Yay!  I love the pop of color it adds.  The starfish pillows are also Threshold for Target.  They were $14.99 each.
Another ottoman view.
I really love the color it adds to our porch.  The green siding with the black LL Bean rocking chairs left it looking a bit dull but now it screams color!  And I'm happy that I gave myself a budget and stuck to it.

Love your swing! I could just see sitting there in the evenings. It's great how creative you can get when you give yourself a budget. Dad's whale turned out great!

I love your beachy porch - If you lived near me, I would give you my huge conch shell that is filled with succulents! How far are you from the beach?

@Patti, we're about 15 minutes from the beach. We live in Wantagh which is called, "the gateway to Jones Beach." =)
