Porch Ideas

I'm anxious to start spending more time outdoors as the weather gets warmer. And it's a great feeling to make a project that helps your home make a great first impression. Spring is one of my favorite times of the year. I love the spring cleaning and fresh crisp air. Here is one of my latest projects for my front porch.

I got 3 turquoise chalk painted crates, distressed them a little, 3 really cute distressed yellow flower pots and, none other then some FAKE (yes fake) red flowers from the dollar store. It is less time consuming to have to remember to water ALL of your flowers so I chose to have a few fake ones this year.

Yes, the sun will eventually fade them but it wont break the bank to have to replace them every couple of years since they only cost one dollar. They look real and no one will notice unless they touch them. No dead or wilted flowers here this year! Of course I can't forget about the cute turtles too :) I have about 4 other porch projects I am working on right now so check back on this post for some more porch ideas.

You can do something like this for any home or apartment to make it warm and inviting.


  1. I love the fake red flowers idea!

  2. Me too, I think I'm off to the dollar store after work to get some!
