A Farmhouse Summer Porch...


You know those little projects that are hard to get to? Not because they will take a long time, but because there are a hundred little other things you need to get done first? That was our porch.

It felt so good to finally clean up the porch and get it ready for summer!




I planted some large delphinium plants in galvanized pails.


I swept the porch and vacuumed the sisal rug. (It always feels funny to take the vacuum out to the front porch, but it works well! ;)



I wrote about our oversized "lantern" here.


Mason jars with votive candles are hung from the old ladder.


I swapped out the pillows on our front bench...


(And I still need to clean the porch railing...)



Freshening up the porch is is a little job, but feels so good once it's done!

Thank you for stopping by today.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

  6. Your porch looks so pretty and clean! My husband just pressure washed ours last week and cleaned and painted our outdoor furniture. We have a lot of trees hanging over our porch which causes a lot of stuff to get on our railings etc. It needs cleaning about twice a year. Ugh! I know you will enjoy using yours now that it's freshened up.
