I wanted the porch to reflect the calm feeling pastel colors give me, so I started my transformation by hanging a soft grey farmhouse rules sign by the front door.
Familiar decorating pieces give me a peaceful feeling......so, I included some of my favorite pieces ......my rag banner and white metal chicken just to name a couple.
I used a few new pieces as well.
I took a photo of the flower box on the front porch and put it in the newly painted picture frame I bought a couple of weeks ago at a yard sale.
I replaced the brightly colored Patriotic decor I had on the serving cart under the mirror.
A few simple decorating pieces created the look I was going for.....
I brought out the piano stool that was in the family dining room and placed it by the front door.
A girl needs a place to sit down and take off her boots....lol!
I filled a vintage ice cream freezer with white sun flowers like the ones I used in the flower box on the other side of the porch. (I have a pic of the flower box I filled with white sun flowers later on in the post)
I replaced the brightly colored Patriotic wreath that was on the front door. .........
The wreath I had hung on the door before was really full and you could hardly see thru it. A simple wreath allows more light to flood into the entryway
I also like the way I can see out onto the porch thru the chicken wire on the wreath.
I made a few changes to the area in front of the porch.
I lined the walkway to the porch with pink geraniums........
I replaced the pink and yellow flowers in the flower box above the fountain with white sun flowers, geraniums, and assorted other flowers and greenery.
Here's the pic of the flower box on the porch side that I promised to share earlier.....
The yellow flowers that were in the flower box found a home in the big metal bucket you see sitting on the serving buffet
My lady scare crow took off her Patriotic dress and put back on the one she wore in the spring. Maybe I'll see pretty outfit at the yard sales this week end and buy it for her!
I always enjoy your visits so much, please stop by again soon!
