My Front Porch in August

(I found my camera after the move….finally!)
I was really excited to have a big (to me) front porch in our new house.
I sit out here all the time….

I purchased the rocking chairs at Lowes for $99 each.
The lanterns are from Target and hung from chain and twine.
Natural twig wreath from Joann’s – 12.99.
Burlap garland from Joann’s for 8.99 a roll.
 Remember my basement door from my other house?
She came with me…
I took off her sheer curtain and gave her an iron accent.

I used my Cricut to print out our house number on sticky vinyl.
Moving a family of four was not the funnest thing I have ever done but I sure love my new porch.

I have front porch envy! I am hoping to have one later this fall when we replace the steps. Love the font you used for the numbers! Well done!

I love your front door. I have a cameo and was wondering what font you used on the front door so I could replicate it for my mom (a HUGE fan of your blog)… 🙂 Thank you!Kristy

One bolt short of a toolbox

I absolutely love the stencil on the front door, we've been trying to figure out what to do with ours lately as i hate the stick up stuff from the big box stores. Jan @

I can only imagine how hard it is to move your family. I love the porch, makes me wish we had one. I am so happy you took your basement door with you, that door is great and it is the reason I am looking for some to put in my home too.

Love your porch! Those numbers on the door look great–did you do those or did you order them from somewhere?


Your porch puts me in the mood for fall. Great elements, as always.

I just adore your down to earth style, Holly, as well as that wonderful front porch and bright red door!


Fantastic front porch! I love everything about it. Gimme a book and a coffee and it'd be very hard to get me back inside the house!


It looks like your making everythingsuper cute and homey already. I love how it all turned out! The house number on the door is such a pretty touch. ~ Jamie

must love junk

Wow! It looks gorgeous! I especially love the bench with the numbers :)Susan


Oh, I've always wanted a porch! It's so beautiful. 🙂


Your porch looks so pretty all spruced up for Fall. I like how you hung lanterns from the ceiling between the columns. Cute! I have a front porch too, and you can't imagine ever not having one once you've had one. I'm sure it will get lots of use! You're going to have alot of fun with it this Christmas too I bet.


Welcome home Down to Earth Style…..welcome home.~Bliss~

You have inspired me. Just put up an antique screen door and have to repaint all to match. I love your colors. Also like the old door with the iron works. enJOYed your post very much.
