Fourth of July Porch decorating, image courtesy of
Here is something that I can honestly say I've ALWAYS wanted to do.  I think a porch, with red white and blue flowers and flags and decoration is just such an iconic image of Americana.  Of course, not having an actual porch like this made it impossible but it didn't stop me from saving the picture "just in case".  Now we have a porch in the country!  

Naturally, it's not ready, it's not painted white, the stairs are still raw wood, the house isn't painted, and there is no landscaping decorating it will have to wait.  That's why I post these though, to share what inspires us and to hear from you if you do something similar to get even more inspiration.

Hope you are having a great 4th of July Holiday!

Be safe, have fun, and be inspired!



  1. Keep saving your inspiration photos, your getting there.

  2. Happy Independence Day to you and 2nd Man! i can't wait to see what you will do with your farm porch once you are there full-time! go out and celebrate today and have a wonderful time!

    your friend,

  3. That's a very pretty porch!

  4. It's a fun idea but I'd never do it because no one would see it. But come on check out that photo now. Who would ever put a rocking chair at the top of the stairs and in front of the door? Those staged photos can be so deceiving.
