Winter Porch

Here are a couple of quick and easy ideas for some inspiration to add to an outdoor winter porch. The porch is the first thing you see that welcomes you into a home. When Christmas comes down, everything looks a bit blah to me. I wanted my porch to be inviting and fun even though it is cold and snowy. This is why I turned to textures and colors for some inspiration. When I think of colors of winter I think of cream, blue, green and gray. I think of yarn sweaters, pine, and sledding outdoors. I took that inspiration to create my fun and simple winter porch.

Th first think I needed was a wreath for the front door. I took a foam wreath form and wrapped it in cream braided yarn. So fast and so simple. I took some green ribbon and a pine pick to finish the look.

I grabbed my old vintage sled from the shed and propped it up in the corner with a small pine wreath. I kept the lanterns out from Christmas and added some wintery fabric to my frame. Ice skates add the final wintery touch I needed in that corner.

I had this old night stand I no longer needed inside of my house and put it on the other side of the door. I made a runner with the same fabric I used in the frame, and kept the tree, lantern, and deer out from Christmas.

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!
