My mother always told me (seriously) that a persons first impression of you always begins with your front porch. If I knew she was coming by, I always made sure the front porch was clean and pretty.
When I think about my dream house, I always visualize a gorgeous expansive porch with comfy furniture and pretty flowers. A place where you’re drawn to sit awhile with a glass of iced tea.
Something like this porch. So country cozy! Love the red!
Or this porch. What’s not to love here. Again, so cozy.
Yummy……Love the pie safe too!
How gorgeous is this. Those barn doors are amazing!
No words needed…… All photos from my Enter Here board on Pinterest.
Unfortunately, as with most houses in my area, my front porch is tiny. Seating consists of a bench just large enough to sit groceries and bags on while unlocking the front door.
But you gotta make the best of what you have. Right?
After having the house freshly painted, I was inspired to kinda “spiff” things up.
I made a couple of colorful new pillows for my garden bench.
Which really made the color on my sign pop. I moved the heart from inside to out.
Instead of new porch lights, I cleaned up and repainted the old ones. Duck Egg blue with charcoal accents.
Which is the same color I painted my little urn. I also repainted the lantern it sits in.
So all is clean and pretty on my tiny front porch. My Mother would be proud.
Have a wonderful week!
