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!

Before we get started, I want to say thank you so much for all your sweet comments on our patio makeover. They mean the world to me, and I hope you feel inspired to tackle your own outdoor spaces now too! And yes, I will have a tutorial coming up soon for the white potting bench we built!

When I first got asked to participate in this patio makeover tour, I thought, “oh boy… how am I going to make this work?”

For the last few years, our patio has been a catch-all for random outdoor furniture, the kids’ toys, and other miscellaneous junk. Jeremy and I have plans for building a deck on the back of the house hopefully soon, so I have never really given much thought to doing anything with our patio. It’s quite small and just to the left of the patio sits a big fenced-in area for our dogs that isn’t exactly very pretty to look at. So what’s a girl to do? [Read more…]

Little White Barn Spring Decor

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

When we moved into this farmhouse almost four years ago, I fell in love with the large yard, beautiful trees, and this adorable little white barn that sits just behind our house.

After sitting out in the elements for years and years, the barn has a beautiful chipped paint finish, and I just love how perfectly imperfect it is. Last year, Jeremy found that gorgeous green light fixture hiding in one of our other barns on the farm, and even though it doesn’t work anymore, I knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. Jeremy installed it above our little barn door, and I think it adds the perfect pop of color against the white paint. It makes my antique, farmhouse-loving heart swoon, for sure!

Since we added the light last year, I have wanted to decorate the barn more, and I finally found the perfect pieces to make it look even more adorable than it already is.
