I needed a porch makeover.
Have a look at this before photo and you will know what I mean! Brace yourself for some of the cheapest decorating ideas for your porch!
I was ready for a change. Spending money was not part of the plan. I have so many things on shelves in my basement that I can use, I just need a little creativity. Here’s the first thing I did for my fall porch makeover.
The leaves below were an arrangement I had from last year, and all I did was tie it to the iron wall hanging with burlap string and reshape a little.
Then there was my Hydrangea bush which bloomed like mad this year. I love to use dried hydrangeas for decor in my home, especially in the winter. They give a little bit of nature to a room which I think makes it feel comfy and warm. It’s a hydrangea explosion!
These are Limelight Hydrangeas. My bush is only two years old, and this was about half of the blooms on it. Furthermore, I recommend it if you’re looking for a hydrangea you can count on to bloom. Click here to learn more about flower gardening
I didn’t shop for any pumpkins yet, so I tried to bring in some fall with the burlap bag and the dark burgundy coleus.The old farmhouse door has been there all summer. The sweet potato vine has grown all over it. The white planter holding most of the hydrangeas was my grandmothers. It’s probably around 75 years old. The planter won’t be on the porch for too long. It was literally disintegrating in my hands as I was preparing the planter for paint.
The rockers have been around for a while and should have some new paint although, with cushions and pillows and a fall throw, they will work out fine, especially since I like a little rustic in my decor throughout my home.
I’m loving the deep purple in the coleus. Also, I have no idea how we got the bucket, but I didn’t have to buy it. The other container is an old soup pot that was my grandmother’s. Consequently, I think the use of old things add character and that’s another reason to not go out and buy new things for your fall decor.
Here are some unique gifts for any occasion or to use in your home:
