Spring Front Porch Makeover

Good morning, and happy Thursday! I hope everyone had a great Easter and is enjoying spring weather. It’s been nice here, so I’m excited to get back outside and utilize our porch and patio.  Today I’m going to show you our Spring front porch makeover.  Now, full disclosure, these pictures were taken late in the summer last year.  Nothing like better late than never, right?  Well, our porch doesn’t look too different this spring, so I thought I’d share them with you today.  I will however, also be telling you what I’d like to do this year to spruce up the front porch.

Here is how the porch looked before we did anything to it.

After a furniture purchase and some plants, this space looks so much better.

I hope you all have a great rest of your week moving into the weekend.  Are you getting outside to enjoy nice weather?
