Spring Porch Decor

My poor porch has been bare, naked, empty since I put away the Christmas decor.  It was a cold January and February and I just didn't have decorating the porch in me.  But, today I decided it was time to start with some spring porch decor. 

add spring decor to your porch a bit at a time
I started small, with just a few things to add some spring color.  I am not ready for flowers (fake or fresh) since real flowers are still a few months away.  So, I decided to begin sparsely and then I will add more as spring progresses. This is our breezeway porch.

I found the most rickety chair I had--this little one from a garage sale that had been taped together on one spindle and had another one broken on the back.

I decide to paint it yellow, which was my favorite color as a kid, always so sunny and cheerful.  This yellow is called faded sunlight and I got it from the local hardware store in a Do it Best brand.  I sanded it a bit and then set a thrift store metal miniature greenhouse on it.  I put a nest from our yard in it with some fake eggs.

I hand-painted a hello spring sign on a round table top--one of those cheap, pressboard--the ones with legs that you screw on and then cover with a round, floor-length tablecloth.

I painted a little of the yellow on the sign, and then some aqua and green.

On the other side of the door I added a little spring with a mint greenish-aqua colored, old cupboard door with a metal bucket attached to it. I stuffed some plastic bags in it, a small piece of burlap, some moss, a nest with eggs and some branches that have tiny buds on them.

The branches are in a cup and I did add a little water to it to see if the branches might bud out. I think I will keep this for summer and plant in the bucket.

I know, the whole porch looks a wee-bit sparse right now, but as I said, I wanted to add things piece by piece as we ease into spring.  I also know we will have more snow and such so I need to use things that will weather well.

  1. Cozy, cute, comfortable porch. It'll be nice when it's warm enough to sit out there & just relax.
