1. Cabinet Door Frame Upcycle
Turn a old cabinet door into an extraordinary wall art for your front porch that will display your initials in an unbeatable style. Also, it’s going to add an instant farmhouse essence to the space, making the most of repurposing. A cabinet door frame is fitted with a sheet of unfinished wainscoting, painting the results with a lovely coat of black spray paint, further applying a layer of white chalk paint atop the black base to get a weathered touch to the piece. Some sandpaper and distressing, as well as a few rusty hardware elements make it look rightly old, letting you adhere the letter in place. Learn the detailed steps you need to follow to build the door frame right from the scratch as explained by Organized Clutter.

2. Milk Can Porch Decor
Old milk cans often come into play to bring an antique touch to home decorations – and this inspiration puts them to use yet again, with a special element of rustic. Not only is this milk can working as a wonderful piece of decor for the porch, but also serves as a compact table that you can use to display tiny table-top planters. An old milk can is painted deep matte black, but those spots where it flaunts its naturally rusty surface as well as other places that have got the paint chipping off make it look absolutely vintage. Simply place a square-shaped piece of wood atop the milk can – adding a splash of paint on the board or keeping it all natural totally depends on your own whims and choices, lastly, placing a beautiful plant with huge florals atop the board. Wrap a long piece of twine around the can, tying up a bow in the middle.

3. Welcome to the Porch
Now let your front porch itself welcome everyone who visits you with true prettiness – all with a welcome sign that’s hung on one of the walls of the porch. And the DIY welcome sign is lovely enough to give any store-bought welcome board a run for its money, stealing the show with its intended imperfections and that effortless shape. What hangs right below the welcome sign having ‘welcome to the porch’ written in white chalk is a glorious window frame with its glass panes intact. However, the factor of worn out and distressed comes from the weathered paint job that’s worked up on the frame with the help of some sandpaper. A flower box is attached to the bottom of the window frame, letting you display fresh bright greens and add freshness to the decor. Complete the look with a rustic grapevine wreath adorned with a ribbon bow.
