Good morning friends! Today I am sharing seasonal porch decorating ideas.
I believe the last time I checked in, I mentioned my hubby and I were cleaning up our outdoor Winter/Spring (pollen) mess outside. It was a rough day out there that day for allergy sufferers such as myself. I got through it and was very happy at the end of the day.
Seasonal porch decorating
The easiest gardening for me, is container gardening. I have a little more luck with that each year. You can find my chalk painted urns project HERE
I typically bring a lot of color outdoors. You get a pretty good indication from the welcoming porch, that you are about to walk into a color bomb house HA! Most all my accessories I have had for many years. You can tell by looking at them. Chippy, rusted and well loved. This garden bench has been spray painted over a few times HERE.
Same goes for that rooster. I love spray paint, it can literally transform anything into almost new again.
If I am not spray painting, I may have a paint brush in hand.
I painted this door last year, and I still absolutely love it. I have had many neighbors ask me the color, and say every time they drive by it makes them smile:) You can find my painted door details HERE.
I didn’t even need to prime the door before. It was a really simple DIY that makes a huge difference.
Here is a flower I never kill. My climbing clematis returns year after year after year. I don’t do a darn thing to it. It apparently liked the corner I planted it in.
This tin rooster was a gift a few years back from my Mother-in-law. It is actually a trash bin that I used as a garden container. She found that through Bits and Pieces catalog.
I used a stick from the yard to keep the lid a little tilted open.
I went pretty simple this year as you can tell. Lots going on with the condo renovations and I only have time for so much! I will be sharing some updates soon. It is almost complete.
Truthfully, I don’t like SO MUCH decor and clutter anymore. Not sure what happened to me, but less is more as I get older. I am seriously ready to purge.
That’s all for today folks! Hope you enjoyed a little bit of happy color and seasonal porch decorating. See you back soon. xo
You can always find me over at Home Pressure Cooking, where yes, I am cooking! LOTS of cooking HA:)
I find myself in the same state of mind! While it is true that Marie Kondo made me realize it, I was already of the “less is more” concept. I guess it really is a getting older thing! My friends have the same experiences. Good going! You will find yourself amazingly calmer about certain things if you create an environment that requires less of your time. It really works! Front porch is lovely and welcoming!
Simply stunning. Thank you for sharing.

I absolutely LOVE your chippy urns! Could you share where you got them? Love the overall look, btw!!
They were originally black and I painted them with white chalky paint many years ago. This is how they look now:)
Looks beautiful Debbie! I just cleaned up our porch that was covered in pollen too! Love all of your bright flowers and your gorgeous front door!
