Welcome to Our Front Porch

I tried something a little different with our front porch this year.  Typically I put out one big pot of flowers on the front corner of the porch.  I'm just not that creative with outdoor spaces.  This year I changed it up and pushed things close to the house on both sides of the door.  Wild, I know. 

The pots I used we already had on hand, which I don't love, but they do the job.  What I do love is the lantern I found at T.J. Maxx and the rug I found at Target.  Try to ignore the ugly brownish-redish door.  We've been wanting to paint that bright red for ohhh, a couple years now.  Perhaps this will be the year to make it happen. 

I like when potted flowers have a mixture of color and shape, however, I don't think I made the right choice in my combo.  Those tall leafy things are growing way faster than the flowers.  Don't be surprised if I rip them out and use them elsewhere, like today. 

So the front porch is done-ish, but let's talk about the rest of the front exterior.  We want to paint the door red, paint the shutters dark charcoal, get new light fixtures, and do something with that old bench.  Oh, and one of these days we'll mulch. 

I need a nap just thinking about it.
