Colorful Spring Front Porch

Share this post

I’ve been teasing this colorful spring front porch for a few weeks and it’s finally done!  This boring and dull space has been turned into an oasis filled with color and texture that warmly welcomes guests into my home.  This post is part of a monthly challenge called At Home DIY, and today’s theme is to take an outdoor eyesore and make it pretty.  My front porch details below plus find all kinds of pretty outdoor projects from my fellow bloggers at the end of this post.

So here’s the before.  My porch after a long cold winter.  It’s bare and dirty and in need of a refresh.  I started by wiping down the corners and sweeping out the leaves and debris.  Then I used a power washer to deep clean and brighten up the concrete a bit.

Once I had a clean slate, it was time to add a few statement pieces. The large welcome sign was easy to make and inexpensive too! Click over to see the full post and see how I made this focal piece.  

The right corner of my porch has been occupied by a couple of vintage butter churns for a few years.  They are cool family heirlooms but honestly they just don’t fit my style.  I am much more modern and colorful than farmhouse  So I moved them to a new home and chose instead to add a small wood chair and bright pillow to this corner. Sewing an outdoor pillow is simple and the best part of making your own is that you can choose the style and size.

The layered rugs add a little more dimension to this Spring front porch.  The stenciled Ikea welcome mat is a favorite that I’m just not ready to part with, and why get rid of something that is still in great shape.  I added a simple buffalo check rug under the mat and love the result.  Get the rug here and spruce up your front porch.

Finally I added flowers.  I love pots overflowing with colorful annuals.  I used large plastic pots in blue and yellow, along with 2 square clay pots.  To ensure these will bloom with minimal maintenance this season I chose annuals that can tolerate full sun and mixed vibrant foliage with a few blooms in each pot.
