Fall Porch 2014

Fall Porch 2014

Gosh, I can hardly believe it’s October!!!

I must admit I LOVE IT!!!

It’s hard to find someone who doesn’t love Fall what with all the smells and colors and temperatures finally beginning to drop (a little)!

The Fall Porch is finally complete!



I had the most fun making these pillows for Plaid.  You can see that post HERE!


I added a little fall color to the entry stairs….


…….it’s amazing what a little “dash” of color will do!!


My door wreaths were super easy to make.  You can see how I did it with the help of Laura from Top This Top That’s wreath tutorial!


I put the black and white pillows along with last years fall pillows on the swing!


I never get tired of classic black & white!! This year I added some burlap pumpkin pillows to the mix!



They’re cute and fun and can stay there through November!

Of course, little touches are scattered here and there.


I took my daughter’s rubber cowboy boots and added some fall foliage along with a pretty ribbon….


….and placed them next to my sandwich board with a simple seasonal sentiment!


My mini goat wagon got a touch of hay, ghords, an extra little pillow and a battery operated candle lantern!


A very simple vignette in the corner that definitely says “fall”!


I updated my pie basket by adding more foliage, some Dollar Tree pumpkins painted white and another candle lantern!

Just adding a few metal leaf sprigs into my faux greenery turned this corner into fall.


Last, I added a two more fake pumpkins from Dollar Tree that I painted white and stained with dark wax to the fern on the other side of the front doors!  I LOVE Dollar Tree’s pumpkins!! A stained glass lantern and a cream “funkin”, which I also stained rounded out the look.



I just stuck the “R” sticker (you can find these at Hobby Lobby) on the pumpkin!


Today, I turned my lantern around to show the “jack-o-lantern” side!

That rounds out the porch!  Hope y’all are enjoying your Fall!  We were finally able to open some windows yesterday and air out the house!




Until next time……….



  1. Where did you get your sandwich board? Love it & the boots together!

  2. Super beautiful! As always! I think you’ve inspired me to pull my little german wicker trunk out of the closed and paint it. I loved what you did with it.

    It’s absolutely stunning!! Truly, I love it!! I think I have porch envy ;).

    You’re a rock star at making bows Angela. They’re perfect and poofy and fun and I love them! Too bad Autumn isn’t longer, then it could stay like that.

  4. Your porch i s gorgeous, Angela! I love all the elements you have there. Those asparagus ferns are amazing, too. That little wagon is adorable. xo Diana

  8. Ms Angela… You’ve out done yourself again… I love everything.. the pumpkins painted white.. and the cute cute pumpkin pillows… Ive gotta makem…. I am so glad you posted the chalkboard.. I found one at Thrift Town in FW for 2.50 has a hole in both side.. The man said.. Are you going to really buy that with a hole in it? Yup… I thought a wreath or burlap bow can hid that.. lol Mine is child size vintage…I wasn’t going to paint it.. but after stripping it I just might.. I write Ya’ll differently lol

    I would love to know more about the black painted milk can and cart.. how’d you do them? Also on the lamp… is it just painted and do you bring it in? Thanks again Girl… Loretta
