A Front Porch to Welcome Spring!

Its done!!!

I finally got into the mood to decorate our front porch for spring after some really nice days last weekend and the early part of this week. Only mother nature decided to pull a fast one and she yanked the rug of warm weather out and then zapped us with some pretty cool temperatures over the last two days.

As for pulling the porch together the first item I added was a place to sit, so out came my new thrift store wicker chair. It's placed on an angle so I can see our neighbors pass by on their spring walks and jogs.

I then added a little white table my sister had given me a few years back and adorned it with a couple coordinating metal lanterns. It is contrasted with one rustic lantern which literally has been sitting on my front porch through the entire winter.

Now I had the wreath hanging on the plain white siding, but that was just it...it was too plain.

So today as I was driving to pick up my friend Peggy, we were heading out for a cappuccino and a little girl talk, I passed by a house which had a bunch of doors sitting next to the road with a sign on it FREE. Oh well that was the perrrrrfect price so I grabbed one of them and stuffed it into the back of the minivan. 

Then I lucked out again because after I pulled out the door from the van I realized one side was already painted a pale sage green. I placed the door, green side out, behind my little white table and then using a metal wreath hanger, I hung the spring wreath. It was just the thing to beak up that long boring wall.

My ASC Antibes green chair came out of the entry to join the spring party on the front porch! 
Two Terra Cotta pots I had painted for a project a couple years ago and then left outside since then, were placed on the seat of the chair. I love the chippy paint look.

A rustic bucket of hydrangea were placed on the small shelf of the table and a pretty green carpet from the Christmas Tree Shop was added to the floor.

And that is my spring porch for 2014!

I hope you are enjoying a little warmer weather than we are here in the northeast. It is barely getting out of the 40's today. But hey if it stays cold it won't bother me, because we are heading for sunny Florida on Saturday!

Woo hoo!!!

Wishing you all a wonderful holiday weekend!
