I’ve been pulling out all of my fall decor over the past couple of weeks. My fall front porch decor is finally finished! Of course, no fall decorating is complete without mums, and I have several. If you are looking for some ideas for decorating your porch, join me today as I share part of our home.
Fall Front Porch:
I love mums, cabbage and fall colored grasses for fall decorating. This year, I have all of those. I had a good coupon for Ace Hardware and I saved it for my fall plants. Saving money always makes me happy! Check out the old tree stump; my sister gave that to me. I use it for my outdoor porch table.
The next photo is a fall sign I made from old wood a couple of years ago. It was super easy. The paint was leftover from who knows what project! My husband must think I have my own paint store hidden in our basement. It seems I rarely need to purchase any paint for craft projects because I typically have something in my stash that will do the trick.
I looked up some fonts I loved, enlarged them, and printed out my own stencils for the words and images. What I usually do for this type of project is rub chalk on the back side of my paper (opposite of the words/images), then I tape the sheet of paper on the board. Finally, I simply use a pencil to trace the word/image. This gives me an outline of the chalk transfer to paint around.
I found an easy-to-follow tutorial painting wood signs using chalk transfers at Jenna Burger Design if you’d like to give this a try!
As you likely remember from last week’s post, I just finished painting my garage doors. They look SO much better. These pretty, red mums add just the right pop!
As you might expect from me, I rarely get through a project without a little bit of paint involved. I had some left over paint (that I also used to repaint the front door hardware a few weeks ago) that I thought would give my outdoor chairs new life. I was right! It took me an extra 15 minutes and they look like new!
The paint is Rustoleum Metallic Oil Rubbed Bronze. I attached a link for your convenience. But, honestly you can get this so much cheaper at Wal-Mart or your local hardware store.

So much better!
I also gave the plant stand below a fresh coat of paint. This stand used to be a table with a glass top. The top broke, but I thought it worked great for adding some height for plants.
The freshly painted chairs!
