Since this is the only Autumn inspiration I have inside my house I decided to make my front porch rustic and festive.
I started out by throwing out my old summer flowers :-(( and taking these old clay pots and transforming them with a little spray paint into something I actually like.
And I suppose the fall Mums aren't so bad either ;-)
I also picked up a wreath at Michael's and hot glued some pine cones and misc. things to it and made my own Autumn wreath. The best part is there are very few Autumn pieces (like the little pumpkins) that I can just remove and replace with something Christmasy soon!!
I also forgot about these perfect little pillows I bought on clearance at Lowe's at the end of summer that I was saving for next year that are perfect for my front porch. Sometimes I wonder why it takes me so long to realize these things...
So now the finished project...
|P.S. please ignore the blue chalk, I have to let the girls have a little fun while we work outside :-)|
Hope everyone is having a fabulous weekend so far!
