Love the look of a Southern front porch? Refresh your Home with Front Porch Decorating Ideas and inspiration all on a budget. From choosing the best plants to easy DIY porch projects follow these tips to style the front porch you’ve always wanted!
With summer right around the corner I really wanted to focus on refreshing our Southern front porch. It’s one of the main reasons we fell in love with our house and I want to make sure it is ready for lots of front porch sitting with our family and friends.
Let’s go back to the beginning to see where this front porch makeover started. This was how the porch looked in March.
Yes, those are Christmas lights still hanging and a Valentine wreath on the front door. I shared all the awful pictures and a front porch decorating ideas checklist last week.
Creating the decorating checklist was a great beginning to the porch makeover. I jotted down exactly what I wanted and my total budget for the project then headed to our local Big Lots for a shopping spree!
Everything I found was very budget friendly and allowed me to get two of those awesome large lanterns!
I love that Big Lots carries high-quality lawn & garden and outdoor décor products. There’s outdoor rugs, fun dishware for cookouts, patio furniture & gazebos. Everything is value priced, on trend, and is perfect for mixing and matching to create a perfect outdoor space. Please remember that styles and assortment vary by store.
With my buggy overflowing I headed home with my treasures to decorate the porch!
My fabulous red front door is the first thing guests see when they arrive at our home. It got special treatment with a large black lantern, the best plants for a front porch, and an upcycled thrift store wreath.
Bet you noticed that bright turquoise flower pot. It’s another DIY porch project I can’t wait to share with you soon!
A new rug helps to define the conversation area. Along with a small table, patterned pillows, and an upcycled outdoor tray it is a great place for chit chatting with neighbors.
It’s also a great spot to tuck in ferns and another large lantern from Big Lots.
Oh! Do you see the navy pillow with the handpainted design? That was a Craft my Stash project. There’s a great how-to video in the works. Make sure you follow along through email so you don’t miss it!
My favorite spot is at the end of the porch. It’s a swing where I can tuck in with a good book or swing with one of my children. There’s been lots of sweet secrets shared there.
The last item to mark off my front porch decorating ideas checklist are the colorful plants for our front porch. The large metal planters hanging from the porch are so fun to fill with the best plants for our Southern climate.
This spring visit your local Big Lots for front porch decorating ideas and outdoor living inspiration! Our front porch makeover was simple thanks to all the awesome, budget friendly products I found.
