Fall on the Front Porch

You may remember the bi-fold door (below) that I painted and waxed and placed in the corner of the dining room. 


I had another smaller bi-fold door in the basement that needed a makeover too. 
I mixed some gray paint with plaster of paris and water to make some chalk paint.  It has just a hint of gray.

I painted the smaller with it, rubbed on some dark wax, stenciled a tree design (using the same stencil I've used on numerous projects), and our street address number on the door, and stood it on the front porch. 




I placed it behind this turquoise table and added faux mums to the clay jack-o-lantern.

Just an additional bit of fall decor for the porch.

I already had all the items, so no money was spent.

This arrangement was a gift from my sister-in-law.  It stands between the front door, and the french door entrance to the dining room.

I'd love to run up on some new cushions (clearance) for the rockers, but I'll probably cover these.

All I did to update the summer wreath, was add the fall garland, which I had.

Thanks for visiting my front porch!

I've been busy for a couple of days making some changes to some of my small tables and lamps.  Both are easy DIY projects that don't...
