Spring is here and I have been itching to start decorating! To me, I love a well decorated front porch, it gives such a great first impression. This time of year, I feel like the exterior of my home always needs a little pick me up after the cold winter. So I decided to do a little Spring Porch Refresh, adding some fresh greens and pops of color.  I’m sharing the details of my spring porch decor below plus, I’ve teamed up with some other bloggers to give you some extra inspiration!

And as always, I’ve linked most of the products so that you can shop them too, because sharing is caring.

Here is my Spring Porch Refresh

I started with my welcome mat. I layered it with this blue striped mat to give it another element of color and make it pop against the blue.

I love this magnolia wreath for the spring and summer months.

I had been looking for a way to add some different dimensions and wanted a vertical sign for the porch. A local shop in my hometown called The Familiar Farmhouse made this welcome sign for me. I gave it a coat of poly so that it could stay outside and sustain the weather.

I am all about faux flowers for outside. I used to get fresh potted plants every year but let’s be honest – I’m good at keeping my kids and my patients alive. Flowers and plants on the other hand, not so much. I got these pots and faux greenery/fleurs from Afloral and honestly you could never tell the difference. I painted the pots this blue color, it’s called Crashing Waves by Behr.

Easy Modern Farmhouse Bathroom update

I’m so excited to FINALLY share with you guys the details of our Modern Farmhouse Master Bathroom update! (I had all intentions of getting this up sooner, but ya know, life.)

So when we first moved in to our new house, I loved that we had a master bath. It needed some work, but being that we just did a huge bathroom renovation at our previous home, and expecting a baby, we put it off.

One weekend after watching Marie Kondo, I was going through our house on a whirlwind. I mean I literally ripped through every room. I stepped into our bathroom, and well, one thing led to another.  We (I say “we” but I mean “me) decided to do a quick little bathroom update for just under $200.

This is what it looked like before.

It wasn’t terrible, but it needed a little refresh.

  • First thing I did was pull out this shelving unit over the toilet and paint. The color we chose was Sherwin Williams Passive Gray. I love this color because it has a nice cool tone to it. I wanted something very airy and clean looking with some touches of rustic/earthy elements to it for a modern farmhouse feel.
  • Next, we painted the bathroom vanity. Our vanity takes up a great deal of space in our bathroom.  To give the space a brighter look I decided to transform it by painting it white and then doing the hardware darker to give it some contrast. For the cabinets we used Rust-oleum cabinet transformations kit in pure white (we had some left over from our DIY distressed bedroom furniture we did in the fall).

  • Our shower is the main focal point of our bathroom. I desperately wanted to get rid of the glass shower door but because there was no tub, and we were just looking to do a quick weekend update, I left it. Instead, I put up a cute shower curtain to cover the glass door to dress it up a little.

  • Next, I added some shelving. To decorate the shelves, I got some apothecary jars and baskets to help organize some of our personal items. I also found a cute little vintage sign and some greenery.

I love the way it came out and for a little under $200, it looks like a totally different space! Not bad for a weekend 😉
