For the size of our home, we have a tiny front porch. It’s a rectangular slab of concrete with rod iron railings on opposite ends. My summer front porch mini makeover was inspired by Michael’s front porch finds. After reading his post I headed to HomeGoods to find a few accessories for some much needed tiny front porch decor.
I eyed this cute little bench… near the lamps. It looked like someone had second thoughts and left this bench before heading out the door. Thank goodness because that little bench was the perfect addition to my …
tiny front porch decor project
The funny thing about my cute little bench from HomeGoods? No one in my family noticed the new bench. It’s been four weeks. On a separate trip to HomeGoods (twist my arm), I found the watering can. That watering can saved the petunias during the hot, dry days in Colorado. I want to find an outdoor-friendly pillow for the bench.
I love the view beyond the covered porch. We installed the rod iron railings over a weekend a few years ago. I lost that post when this happened last summer. The rod iron spindles added an open-air space feeling to the tiny porch. The opposite side of this railing opens to the driveway and garage.
The planters were a huge find a few years ago. I bought them for a few dollars at my friend’s garage sale. They were gray and the black paint gave a pop color against the brown/grey stone.
The planters are a year-round staple on the front porch and added height and color. These planters take center stage for every season.
Are you like me and buy a new coir rug for the front porch? This bicycle doormat from Target screamed summer! And, the pink in the doormat matches the petunias.
It just shows that it doesn’t take a lot of to add decor to a tiny front porch. Stay tuned for a front porch update. I have my eye on the front door for a new paint color. I would love paint color suggestions for the front door.
