Our Front Porch is in need of several upgrades. For one, we would eventually like to replace our front door but for now I have made a few small changes to dress it up. Last year we got a metal bench. It was on end of the season clearance at Lowes. We put this bench beside the front door as a stopping place for visitors and a place to change shoes as you come and go. This year I added some outdoor pillows for color. This porch is shaded most of the day, so I selected some shade loving caladium and vinca vine to go in my new red planter. I found the planter and plants at Lowes.
The welcome mat was an inheritance from the previous owner of our house. I am currently searching for one that better suits our tastes. Any source tips/recommendations are appreciated.
