Spring Patio Tour

When spring rolls around I just can't wait to decorate the OUTSIDE for once!  Living in the midwest we mainly get April-October to enjoy the outdoors, so once April hit I was itching to get my front porch looking bright and cheery.

The only thing we ever had in the front was our Tower Garden (which you'll see in the corner of the patio).  We'd never added chairs or anything, after finally doing so, I'm really mad at myself for not doing it much sooner!!!  We are out on our patio now ALL THE TIME NOW.

The kids play in the front yard and we relax in our new chairs.  I couldn't find a table I liked or wanted, so I built the one you'll see between the chairs.  I also built the "Welcome" sign, "welcome spring" sign and sign post hook, and did some spray painting and DIYing to pull all the little details together.

You can see my posts on the Welcome Sign Hook Post HERE

You can see my post on the Spray Painted Entry Table HERE

You can see my post on the Painted Flower Pots (Free download) HERE

You can see my post on the $5.00 DIY Side Table Build HERE

I just love love love how it all turned out!  We will be enjoying our patio for many more days to come!

You can see a full patio tour in the video link below!
