My Little Fall Porch

I spent time working on decorating my front porch for fall today – fortunately the weather cooperated.
We rent a townhouse and we love where we live – the neighbors are nice, the streets are quiet and the house is perfect for us.
We love renting, too!
It has been a blessing to live where we do.

Our front porch is pretty small, but I am happy that I have a little porch and that it is covered.
It is very workable and for that, I am thankful.
Here is the view from the front:

It is a small space, but I think it works perfectly well.

You have to work with what you got!

Fall Porch 2I love to use my chalkboards to decorate for the seasons.  They are so easy to make!
The stool is a purchase I made at Luckett’s Spring Market.
It is stinkin’ cute and oh so chippy!
My stacked pumpkins have a nice home there.
I added some pretty chevron ribbon to my pumpkins, too.

Fall Porch 3I added some orange mums which are my absolute favorite color of mums!

Fall Porch 5I added some rustic elements – chippy shutter, wood boxes and an old
egg basket fulls of pumpkins and gourds.

Fall Porch 7The key to maximizing space on a small porch is to work UP.
Use all the space you have and be sure not to waste your vertical space.
I used shutters and a tall chalkboard to give my decor some height and layered many items as well.
Much can be done with just a little space…you just have to be creative.
I added another chalkboard I made on an old tin from Goodwill as well as a cute felt banner.Fall Porch 8

Fall Porch 9I also crafted a festive burlap wreath for the occasion.
I had several yards of this amazing orange burlap and I think I was able to put it to good use.
If you like it, you can easily make your own…HERE is the tutorial.
I love the pop of color it adds to my deep green door.

  1. It looks fabulous! You’ve layered it all in so nicely with the space you’ve got! It’s so hard taking photos with the glass door! I feel your pain! I do decorate our front porches (we have two little ones). I got some more inspiration from you now and need to get back to it!

  2. Your front porch is so cute and inviting! Love the use of shutters and chalkboards. Have a lovely day!

    YOU are amazing!! I have been looking at what you put together for some time now and I love it all! Your attitude is refreshing!! I often find it very difficult to make the most of what I have. You have set a wonderful example!

  4. Your porch looks great! I LOVE that wreath – it gives a great pop of color on your door. I would love a chalkboard on my porch – great styling!

  5. This is so pretty! I love the variety of pumpkins, and your wreath is so cute!
