Spring Front Porch Inspiration

It’s the first day of spring and we finally have some beautiful spring weather!   The sunshine and warmer temperatures lift my spirits and get me thinking about my yard.  

As a result, I have been busy getting my yard ready for planting and doing several yard-related projects.  We just finished getting a drip irrigation system installed in all of our beds and, oh boy, did we need that!  I’m so hopeful that this new system will help keep more plants alive.  I’ve lost so many during these past few years with the drought.  

Hopefully, I’ll be sharing some of my completed yard projects soon (they’re still in progress)!

One “project” I’m working on is getting my front porch all spruced up.  I want to get some new outdoor pillows, move a few things around and freshen a piece or two up with some paint.  So I started doing a little playing with a mood board to help me get a vision.  When I have lots of ideas in my head swirling around, it always helps me to put things together where I can see them.

Here’s my spring front porch inspiration:

I am going for a more colorful look on the front porch this year.

I am loving this fabric from fabric.com


I think it’s so fresh and colorful.  It feels like summer just looking at it!

I also love these galvanized planters from Pottery Barn:

They add a casual, rustic charm I think.

The best part is, you can get this look for a lot cheaper than major retailer prices.  I’ve seen buckets at the hardware store that would look just as cute for a fraction of the price.

I’m getting so anxious to get things moving outside, but the forecast still calls for some more chilly nights so I can’t go all out yet.  

In the meantime, I think I’ll be ordering that cute fabric so I can sew a couple of pillows.

How about you?  Are you planning for spring yet?

  1. So thankful for this weather too! I hope we have a wetter year around here and hoping this long colder than normal winter will at least usher in a cooler than normal summer! I only have a front stoop but I do have an amazing covered back porch…I have had my eye on that same fabric. Gettin’ in the mood!

  2. Oh, my word! I love that fabric, too! And what a great price. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Love your inspiration board…so looking forward to seeing your porch!…Have a great weekend and Happy Spring!

    I like that print for outdoor fabric! Another site that has really reasonable fabric is: barnfabriccenter.com. I have ordered from them 3 times and have never been disappointed. They are typically twice as cheap as any other retail or online site.

  5. Your inspiration is very pretty. Soon I’m going to get brave and plant some pots. At least I can move them in if necessary.

  6. Great inspiration and it will look lovely. We are still getting snow but I long to get some outdoor work done.


  1. […] you may recall, I created a mood board for this space awhile back (you can read about it here).  I wanted to give it more pops of color than it had […]

I love, love, love your comments and I read every single one of them! I make every effort to answer questions and try to do so in a timely manner. Unfortunately, I am not always able to reply to every comment but I try to keep up when I can. Thank you!
