Well, I guess it is time to face the fact that Fall is just around the corner :(. I really do love summer! But I like to decorate for Fall too! I decided to do a little decorating on my back porch, not too much fall, but just enough for a transition.
I used more yellows, golds, and oranges to go along with my turquoise and blues.
These chairs came from a friend of mine and I just spray painted them blue. I used a variety of pillows in the yellow and orange colors.
Over near the door I placed two tall windows and a piece of picket fence behind a basket with chrysanthemums and sunflowers.
I also pinned sunflowers onto a string of twine across the window frame that hangs behind the chairs.
We received this half-barrel from a friend a few years ago. I kept thinking i would plant something in it, but with the drought this year, I finally decided to do something different. I had the round piece of wood sitting out in our shop, so I painted it black. My husband added some little boards inside the barrel so the round piece would have something to sit on and would stay balanced if we placed stuff on top. I added a handle on each side. I found an old hula-hoop and cut it open and then cut it to fit around the circle. Then I added rope all the way around until it fit nice and snug inside the barrel rim. I love the rustic look of it!
I found the little succulents at the .99 Cent Store. Lauren thought her Starbucks cup added so much more to the ambiance! 🙂
I added just a few pumpkins to bring in a touch of fall.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour! I am slowly getting the rest of the house ready for Fall too. How about you? Are you ready for Fall?
