Front Porch: Before and After

Our front porch is one of our favorite places in our house. It's so perfect for relaxing, reading, or having a glass of wine! We live in a really cool area, so there is a lot of people-watching also :) Since, we just are renting, there is only so much we wanted to do to our house. We did a few things though that completely change the curb appeal of our house.

We added some pretty wrought-iron porch furniture, as well as a wreath (Restoration Hardware outlet!), and a doormat. I also hung some beautiful ferns and planted some colorful begonias in the flower bed.

It's starting to get a little too hot out there, but we still enjoy it in the evenings. Michael has even planted a little vegetable garden on the side. We absolutely love our front porch!
