We repainted the porch and front door, fixed the broken outlet, replaced the door mat, added cushions on the bench, and added flowers in the pot by the door and flower bed.

    Your front porch looks great! I love the large planters too. Definitely going to have to consider something like that for ours. Thanks for sharing!

      The planters are almost 10 years old…I am really happy with how well they have held up!

    What color and brand did you use for the Porch paint? I love that dark grey!

    Hi Carisa, You can find this paint color at Sherwin-Williams. It is called Garden Gate SW6167. It is a great color!
