Our front porch

So sorry for the lack of posts this week. Summer is in full swing and I am enjoying all the freedom that summer brings... the late nights, sleeping in, and lightening up on the projects and blogging which allows me to spend more time with the most important people in my life, my children and husband!

A couple of weeks ago I shared with you my tiered polka dot planter and promised to show you my entire front porch.

 I guess I got a little side tracked {not the first time} when I started my son's bedroom makeover and kind of forgot to share those with you!

Please pretend you don't notice that all the scrubs need a good trimming.

Our dog Shadow also loves spending time out 
on our front porch.
I used chalkboard spray paint on the flower pot!

The wreath and door mat were also DIY projects. You can find them here and here.

Hope you are enjoying your summer and spending quality time with your loved ones!


Linking up this week to...

  15. Amy, I love your front porch! I wish we had more than just an area for a doormat. Thanks so much for stopping by Creative Thursday last week. I couldn’t do these parties without you. Can’t wait to see what you link up this week. Have a great week.
