You may remember back in May, we gave the entire back patio area a makeover. At the time it looked really nice but the blistering heat and constant coastal rains really did a number on the pieces of furniture we had set up out there. I definitely want to make sure we’re able to continue to use the back patio area all winter long. Thankfully, I was able to take most of last week and weekend to give the space a fresh feel.

When we decided to separate the front porch into zones it was a total game changer. I was looking for another bench to use on the porch when I found a set of twin headboards, I had been storing for a while. Here’s how we created a headboard to bench makeover and jazzed up the front porch…
I’m a few weeks away from swapping out apples for pumpkins so I wanted to do something with the fall inspired entry that would make the transition into Thanksgiving a seamless one.

I’ve had a lot of projects to keep me busy this month like reviving tarnished trophies, adding touches of fall to the house, painting the front door, making baked apple bars and shopping for treasures. This has been a productive month as we say Goodbye September, Hello October.
It all started last year when I was decorating the front porch for fall. The salt air, marsh winds and coastal rains had caused the front door to become faded and worn. It made my whole porch look tired. I’ve tried a lot of different paints over the past few months but there’s been one paint in particular I’ve wanted to try. Enter Modern Masters, Front Door Paint.
As most of you know, we spend a good amount of our off time at the cabin. The crisp fall mornings with a steaming cup of cider, the scenic drive we get to enjoy when the leaves change and taking a lazy afternoon to eat farm fresh apples on a hay ride became the inspiration for this vintage inspired apple picking sign.
Breadboards and cutting boards are not only practical kitchen items but they can also be decorative as well. I use them to add texture around the house and I almost always pick up the vintage boards I find when I’m out shopping.
