Fall Patio

I cannot get enough of this beautiful fall we’re having. The leaves are finally starting to turn here, and the weather has been nothing short of beautiful. Most days are still warm and sunny, but we’ve had just enough chilly, rainy days too that make you want to throw on a cozy sweater and sip on a mug of hot chocolate. And I’ve needed a reason to finally wear my collection of cute boots that I seem to keep adding to throughout the year… : ) I truly love this season!

I’ve shared quite a few different spaces from our little farmhouse dressed up for fall over the last month or so… from our country kitchen, to the cozy living room, to a simple fall table setting, to our master bedroom retreat, to our festive front porch

… and now I get to share probably my favorite space of all with you… our patio! After giving this tiny concrete slab in our backyard a big makeover this summer, I couldn’t let this season go by without adding a touch of fall to our sweet, little patio. This has been the perfect place to sit outside during the day, looking at the gorgeous colors on the trees and feeling the warm sunshine on my face, and my favorite spot to sit under the stars at night with candles lit and a cozy blanket wrapped around me.

Simple Farmhouse Front Porch

This post is sponsored by our friends at Joss and Main // Hello, darlings! You’ve seen plenty of fall decorating on the inside of our house over the last few weeks, but you didn’t think I’d forget about the outside of our little farmhouse, did you? Our front porch is the first thing you see when you pull into our driveway, so even though it is small, I want it to be welcoming.

I put an old barrel that we pulled from one of our barns next to the door and set some candle lanterns on top for pretty lighting in the evening. I love these little teak stools that I just picked up, which are the perfect size for displaying pumpkins or colorful mums this time of year. The porch is simple, but I think it feels charming and inviting!

DIY Potting Bench with Decorative Roof

A few months ago, I never imagined our tiny, barren patio would be a place I would actually enjoy. With a little bit of elbow grease, a few DIY projects, and some new patio furniture, we completely transformed this space, and it is hardly recognizable now! (You can see the before and after here!)

We entertain friends out here in the evenings, relax in our cozy chairs while the kids run around the yard, and soak up the sunshine surrounded by my growing garden of potted plants and flowers. This patio might be one of my favorite makeovers to date! And one of the big reasons this makeover is at the top of my list is because of the huge, beautiful, and super versatile piece of furniture we built that became the focal point of the whole patio…

… this DIY Potting Bench!

This stunning DIY potting bench is full of charm and perfect for a deck or patio! Use it to hold pots and gardening tools or as a beverage cart when entertaining guests! Full how-to at LoveGrowsWild.com

Outdoor Table Setting on the Farm

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of At Home. All opinions are 100% mine.

I love this time of year on the farm. The weather is finally warm and all the trees are starting to look full and green again after a long, cold winter. Right next to our big white barn in the backyard sits a beautiful tree that I’ve always thought would be the perfect place to have an outdoor dinner party. So a few weeks ago, that’s exactly what I did!

Front Porch Update

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of At Home. All opinions are 100% mine.

Hello, my loves. Remember last year when I gave our teeny, tiny farmhouse front porch a makeover? A new light fixture, wooden planters, and some bold house numbers painted on our front door… it was a big improvement! This year I thought I’d add to my cute, little front porch with a few new pieces for spring.

I started with the wooden X planters I built last year. They added some much-needed warmth and character to the front of our house, and although I had real plants growing in them last summer, I decided to move my boxwood topiaries up here for now and see how I like them. Do you remember these topiaries from my little white barn last week? Even though they were darling next to the barn, I think I like them up on the front porch even more!
