Sweep Front Porch

So this post is actually going to go a little farther than just sweeping the front porch!  Hopefully it will also inspire you to put a few personal touches on your front entryway to welcome in Fall!  I shared what I did  a couple years ago and it certainly shouts – NO MARTHA STEWART lives here!  So don’t feel bad if you aren’t creating a big masterpiece.  It honestly is the thought that counts and even though my family may not mention it, I know they appreciate it.  (I’ve overheard my kids’ friends say they wished their mom would decorate like ‘that’ – so it does matter!)

There are a ton of great DIY ideas for decorating – I love looking at all the ideas, but have to admit I am not very good at actually doing any of them!  But perhaps this year will be different.  I really need to dig into my creative side to bring out a little “UMPH” into my spirit.  Maybe you feel the same way?

If you decide to decorate – great!  In any event the first step will be cleaning up the porch so start here:

1.  Clean/empty any planters from summer

2.  Remove and clean/sweep door mat.

3.  Sweep or even pressure wash your front porch and stairs.

4.  Decide of what Fall decorations to put up.

5.  Re-plant some fall flowers in those planters.

6.  Enjoy the view – and your guests will too!

Here are a few places that shared some spectacular ideas, hop over and feast your eyes – you won’t be disappointed!

  • This was delightful. I absolutely love your front porch with the fall decorations. I actually just recently cleaned my screens and windows, got a new welcome mat, and a new artificial flower arrangement for the fall for the front porch because we had our house painted. I wanted to finish up the new look with some new items on the porch. I even stained the glider dark brown. Everything looks so cozy. Thanks for a great site.
