Farmhouse Style Spring Porch

It has been so unseasonably nice this year for Spring, we are in the middle of May and sitting outside on the front porch is still bearable! Plus I have gotten to open all the doors and enjoy the breeze so much this spring.  I made a few changes to the front porch, so I decided to share.

Not too much has changed, but I did find this red ticking stripe fabric and decided it would be a fun update for spring and summer. And of course I had to change out the chalk board and add a little spring touch to the galvanized buckets on the gate.

Since I can’t seem to keep anything alive up here, I have opted for faux floral plants.  These adorable ones are from IKEA.  I also added some more terra cotta plants to the tiered tray in the chicken coop.  Pots and planters just say spring to me.  If you need a tutorial on how to age your terra cotta pots, you can find out how I did mine here: DIY Aged Terra Cotta Pots.

On the other side of the porch I also added the ticking stripe pillows to the rocking chairs.  Ticking stripe is so farmhouse. I really like how the red looks with the black, and it will be great to style with red, white and blue throughout the summer months.

Obviously I had to change out the other chalkboard as well.

Paired with a cute lantern, and well…more fake plants.

The frame on the front door also received a little spring spruce up.  I swapped out the baby’s breath for some more colorful floral.

There you have it, some simple changes to bring a little more spring to our front  porch.  If you need me I will be enjoying a couple more days out here, before the real heat sweeps in.  I hope the summer is mild, so we can at least come out here and sip coffee in the morning!  How is your spring shaping up? Or are you ready for the summer sun?

Thanks for stopping by!
