Fall Front Porch


Welcome To Our Front Porch!

I continue to add to my Fall decorations around my house, and my porch received extra attention this weekend.  Something I've learned since I started taking photos for my blog is how different my house looks through photos.  It's made me take a second look at some things around my house and give them a little extra attention.
I gave this bench a new coat of red paint for a pop of much needed color, and brought it around to the front porch from our back porch.  I then added a cozy blanket for cool evenings.  I added a small bale of hay, some more pumpkins and a mum. 
The mum also helps camouflage the cord that is for the lights I put in our swag  that hangs across the porch.  It looks so pretty at night with the soft lights. 
The swag also gives the porch tons of Fall color.
My Father-In-Law found this sweet high chair on the side of the road broken in several pieces.  He repaired it, painted it, and gave it new life.  It's one of my favorite things.
My screen door got a Fall wreath, and I added a new welcome mat that has pretty Fall colors too. I'm thinking about painting the screen doors red.  What do you think?

I am going to share a little secret with you.......
since we live across from this
I used zip ties to keep some of the things on my porch from ending up in the cotton field.  It worked!!!  We had 22 mph winds Saturday, and everything stayed right where I put them. 
I hope you enjoyed the tour of my Fall porch. 

I hope you have a WONDERFUL WEEK!

  1. Hi Heather! You have a lovely home, especially your porch! I'm in the South also and love to take coffee to my deck in the morning and watch for deer. On another post I saw a gorgeous trunk beside a little shelf. I'm now following!

  7. Everything looks so pretty! Very smart to use the mum to hide the cord. :) I think the screen doors would look great painted red!
