Spring Porch Tour

Sharing is caring!

It’s that time of year when the birds start chirping again, the grass turns green and this strange, warm ball of blinding light makes an appearance in the sky.

It always amazes me.

To celebrate the coming of spring, the first place that gets a facelift is the wrap- around front porch on the old farmhouse.

I’m excited to have you over for a little spring porch tour today!

Usually, I have our wood pile for our wood stove off to the left of the front door. But, this spring its out of sight around the corner, making room for a collection of garden inspired decor I can’t wait to show you.

To create this look, I first leaned a set of bifold doors up against the wall. I found them at a architectural salvage store and thought they looked like large shutters. I have a plethora of ideas for using them around the house. Yippeee!

I added my favorite sunhat to the doors and brought out my garage sale easel with a French canvas art piece I made recently. Here is an almost identical easel from Wayfair.

The shutters and artwork gave me some needed height in the corner, then I started to build out on the ground a little.

My big 40L galvanized container from IKEA is where I keep my potting soil and that urn with ivy has been around since who knows when.

Finally, I pulled my Hobby Lobby lantern off my hearth and my Hunter boots out of my closet for a couple pops of black.

For the door, I just reused the 5 Minute Fern Wreath from last year on my trusty command strip hook.

My porch is really uneven, so my row of wooden, folding chairs from IKEA looks a little wonky, but I’ve made peace with it until we can afford to redo the porch.

My favorite step stool from IKEA now sits to the right of the front door. And since I know you are going to ask, the color is Boxwood from Miss Mustard Seed.

To soften everything up a bit, I brought out a couple of throw pillows, some faux ferns in galvanized pails from Michaels and some faux roses from IKEA.

Last but not least, I dug threw my garden stash for some pretty pieces and hung a tray on the wall for more height above the chairs.

    Wonderful use of IKEA items. Overwhelming to go in there sometimes. But reading your blog is beginning to train my eye for what to seek out. ❤️

    Can I chime in about your laundry time savers? There wasn’t the option at the end of that discussion.
    We raised four children and they all started to do their own laundry at age eight when I decided they could read and reach the knobs. Never any problems except for one daughter washing her brand new high school basketball varsity jersey with a new red sweatshirt. We caught it before going in the dryer and managed to soak out most of the pink though the jersey always looked a little off to me.
    My son had four laundry baskets and only he knew which were the clean and which untouchables.
    I rarely iron because as soon as that dryer buzzes I am shaking out and hanging clothes right there. Not over crowding the dryer helps.
    I am totally thankful to have a washer/dryer in my home because I know from life how difficult the alternative is.

      Jody, thank you for your sweet compliment. I am so glad you are gaining in decorating confidence. And yes to your laundry tip, I couldn’t agree more. A few years back we started having everyone in the house do their own laundry and that means I need about 15 mins a week to take care of mine. So freeing! I will add you suggestion to my email series. xoxo

    So pretty!! May I ask what is the house main color? We have a green on the exterior of our house but I am having a hard time finding good colors as it needs repainted.
