Front Porch Reveal

I am so excited to finally share my recent front porch makeover with you all! I have always dreamed of having a cozy little front porch, and the time has finally come. Since we are currently renting our house, I am unable to fix up the home exterior like I might with my own. So that means I needed to make the front porch really pop!

If you have a front porch, it is the first impression when people walk up to your home. Don't you want to make it just as inviting as the inside of your home? I know I do! And besides, its a great excuse to design an extra room;) Especially as Spring approaches - its such a peaceful space to sit outside and enjoy a beautiful sunset. And maybe a glass of wine too!

And now for the fun part... Eye candy!

Who I'm linking up with:

  3. Amy...I absolutely LOVE the RED!!!!!!!

  4. Love your front porch. I agree with you that is the first thing you really notice from the street is the front porch. Great job!

  5. It looks great! I wish we could accessorize our front areas where I live! I'm sure you'll enjoy many a evening on that porch!

  6. Your porch looks so inviting. Very pretty goodies on it. Having a nice front porch where neighbors and friends can stop by to chat or have a cool/hot drink used to be the norm. Looks like you're reviving that custom.
    We lived out in country in Ky and had a really nice good sized front porch. I sure miss that house and front porch. I decorated it for the seasons. We had an arbor where steps were onto the porch and I kept it decorated all the time. We had forsythia bushes out in front and alot of vegetation, was so pretty. Wish my health could have handled the climate there. Enjoy your wonderful porch. Happy Days

  7. Looks amazing! Great Job! :)

  8. Lovely- looks very Fourth of July in Texas to me! A large front porch is on our wish list!
