Spring Farmhouse Porch

Even if you don’t live in a farmhouse,
it’s easy to achieve a
spring farmhouse porch
by adding simple and natural elements.

Even though there is snow on the ground, seriously, I am determined to think spring. I’ve brought touches into my living room and dining room, so it was time to work on the front porch. Don’t be confused by the title of this post. I so did not move to a farmhouse…but I wanted to add some farmhouse touches to the exterior of my home. My porch is small with a railing so that in itself pretty much disqualifies it as farmhouse. I don’t care though. It’s not finished yet but here’s what I have so far for my Spring Farmhouse Porch.

I replaced the wicker rockers with wood ones. My family never knows what to get me for my birthday so this year I made it very easy for them. I asked for 2 of these farmhouse rockers. They arrived on my door step, I put them together and had instant farmhouse charm. I brought out my large enamelware pitcher filled with pussy willows for the table.

I put ranunculus in an enamelware bucket. I took the time to drill a couple of small holes in the bottom of the bucket so the water would drain. It’s definitely now a planter but that’s OK. I love it.

The door area is still very traditional. For now I have lobelia in the black planters, but I want to move them to the back deck and replace them with something made from galvanized metal. I haven’t found any so far but I hope to get lucky. (Doormat is no longer available.)

It took me a while to break out of the “stick to one style” mentality when it comes to decorating. I’m a firm believer in collecting what you love and using it to decorate your home. A little mixing of styles makes things interesting. It also makes your home a true reflection of YOU. Can’t get much better than that.

See you in a few days…enjoy the week!
