I have a confession to make.
This porch? It was still a Christmas porch until just a couple of days ago.
With the organizing challenge happening, some jobs have slipped between the cracks.
Such as the front porch decor. And the garage. But that’s another story altogether.
Anyhow… I thought spring was on the way this week. We’ve had some beautiful sunny days that are so warm that the kids are playing outside in their t-shirts. I still wore my coat, but they don’t seem to mind the crisp spring air quite as much!
It fooled me. I figured spring was right around the corner. Until we woke up with a light dusting of snow and frosted over cars this morning.
Oh well, when Spring does finally decide to arrive, my porch and I will be ready for it…
This was so easy to pull together that it makes me wonder what took me so long? It seriously took me about half an hour to take the Christmas Porch decor down and put up some spring decor. Do you ever put off little jobs like that only to be reminded how quick they can be??
All I did was grab some pretty little spring flowers from the grocery store, plunk them into my pots or group them together on the ground, redo my seasonal chalkboard, add some colourful outdoor pillows, and finish it all off by throwing up a fresh and colourful spring wreath.
Easy, fresh, and cute right? And now the delivery guy won’t be wondering why we still think it’s Christmas around here…
I love my five minute dollar store early spring forsythia wreath from last spring… but if you are looking for a wreath and don’t have time to DIY one, then I have some ideas for you at the end of this post!
Cleaning off the old porch did make me realize that we have some maintenance to tackle as soon as the weather warms up. Our concrete paint is starting to chip and peel. It never seems to last very well. I’m looking into a more long term solution for our porch instead of the paint… Let me know if you have any ideas!
This giant chalkboard that I made out of an old oil painting from a thrift store is still one of my faves. I love changing it out each season!
A few flowers and a pretty spring wreath makes such a big difference,right?
I’ve got some DIY wreath ideas for you!!
Or if you are you looking for a wreath for this season but don’t want to DIY it, I’ve picked out some great ones for you!
Want to remember these?
