Christmas on my porch

I have spent all of last week decorating and getting ready for Christmas. One of my favorite spaces to decorate is my front porch. I kept it pretty simple this year. I took the lantern from my front porch and sprayed it a new color.


That was when the grass was still green.

I took that lantern and put it on my porch and added a bit of greenery and lights to it.


Then I took this fun find and made it into a chalk board to hang a wreath on. We just cut some wood, and I sprayed it with chalk board paint. Then we stapled it onto the back of the frame.


It snowed today, so the snow on the bottom just adds to the wintery effect.


I added an old sled to the other side, and that is my simple front porch this year. I have wreaths on all my front windows, and a swag between the columns. I will have to post that another day. It is snowing hard out there.



I'm Erin, a busy mom of three, chauffeur, cook, housekeeper, and wanna be decorator. I love old movies, good books, and a daily trip to Lowes. We have recently bought a new we are fixing up and changing everything. This blog is to record our renovating journey. This is not the first house we have done. Actually, it is our third. My husband and I love a project. Any project. We both love working on our home, have the same taste, (which is great), and love working and re purposing things on our budget. We can show you how to put together a high end and creative look without breaking the bank. Taking something old and recreating it into something new and exciting for any room is my passion. Hope you enjoy this decorating journey with us!
