My Decor Tips

How to Get Your Front Porch Rockin’

Texas currently can’t decide if it’s winter or summer (try going from 88 degrees to 42 in about 48 hours), so it has got me dreaming and swooning over what I want my front porch to look like in the coming months! I love southern style, so what says southern better than front porch sittin’?

I found this beautiful porch idea via Finding Home Farms,  and I’m going to try to recreate this loveliness this Spring (because whether you like it or not, Spring will be here soon!)!

Yesterday, the little girl fell asleep on the way home, and I took her out of the car and we went and sat on the front porch.  Her asleep on my shoulder, and me just rocking.  Yep! Just rocking like an old lady with nothing better to do! Ha!  Let me tell you though, the only thing missing was an ice cold glass of sweet tea in a Mason jar to make it perfect.  It was glorious to just stop in the midst of the current craziness and listen to the trees sway in the wind and listen to what God wants to tell me.  Sometimes, just STOPPING and being silent…no technology, no reading, just being silent for a few minutes makes a world of difference! I came back in with a peace and a gratefulness that could’ve only come with being STILL.

The little photo above, and the moment I had rocking yesterday spurred on so many ideas for my front porch that is currently in dire need of some major TLC!

I definitely need some greenery out on the front of course, and since I love the farmhouse look inside AND out, I found these amazing planters!  You can find them HERE.

I also have been looking for some outdoor lanterns that wouldn’t get too dirty, but would be just right for outdoor decor.  I found these cute little gems HERE.
And what about THIS!  I’m a sucker for anything unique, and something you might not see everywhere and in everyone’s home.  This mat is a MUST have, and you can find it HERE!
And a front porch would NOT be complete without a throw pillow or two.  I found this beautiful pillow that portrays the message of what I want for front porch sittin’.  Find it HERE.
Those are all of my front porch ideas for now, so be expecting (in the kind of sort of near future), a before and after of my porch.  I envision many a days rocking with my sweet tea in hand. And if you come by, be sure to stop and stay awhile!
