Our Beautiful French Country Front Porch Makeover
I am so glad that you are here today. Thank you so much for stopping by. Today, I am going to share with you our front porch makeover. When we bought this house, the bones of it were amazing, but she definitely needed a makeover. Let’s get this party started.
This is what the front porch looks like now after the makeover. I love the stone arch above the porch, it adds so much character to the entry of our home. The stones are so pretty, but they have a lavender hue to them and I definitely didn’t want purple rocks on the front of the house. Do you blame me?
The front of the house is oh so pretty, but there was so much more potential. The space isn’t very big, it’s approximately 5’x4′. The porch itself was a painted concrete that was worn. Years ago, I painted it white to match the new house color, but I knew that it was only temporary.
My husband and I decided that it was definitely time to do a porch makeover. We had the entire walkway to the house removed and we added a radius(rounded) both of the steps to increase the space. We also added lighting to the steps and all along the walkway.
Before the porch makeover, just the front door itself was painted black. After the porch makeover, I decided to paint the trim and the sidelight to make the entire door pakcage have more presence. what do you think? Do you like the black door? Then the right side of the door felt like it needed something, so I added this vintage shutter. It was the perfect size and the perfect color and the price was just right.
I love that I now have plenty of room to decorate the porch. I bought the concrete urns and pedastols from a local vendor. When I got them, they were raw concrete-so I aged them. I will write a post on how I aged them in a future post. The lanterns add wonderful character to the porch and I love that they turn on automatically. I couldn’t find the exact same lanterns that I have, you can get similar lanterns here.
I’m so glad that you stopped by today. I always enjoy our time together. Let me know what you think of my porch makeover.
Hugs and blessings to you,
