Autumn Porch:{3 Porch Projects}

Love what a little spray paint can do!
When looking to make a little decorating change the first thing we consider is what will it cost and can we do it with spray paint! More times than not spray paint comes out the winner. Today we have three different projects we used spray paint on to give a little face lift to our porch decor this Autumn.
 As we get more into Halloween and Fall, we make even more changes!

Our welcome pumpkin has served us well over the last three years and was looking a little worn out. 

Time to freshen you up a bit!

Using Krylon Pumpkin Orange spray paint
He went from that above to......,..

This! We love it! Looks brand new!

 Our second project is a three tier planter we made using some old enamel bowls and spray paint that looks like stone when dried.

We have had these bowls a long time and it was time to use or get rid of them. So we re purposed them.

We drilled holes in the bottoms for drainage.
Gave the bowls a couple good coats of Stone spray paint.
We used a rock inside the two bigger bowls for height.
Planted and watered our plants.

Our third project is two metal plant baskets that were out in the shed waiting to be rescued!
With a couple coats of spray paint and new coconut basket liners, well, they look pretty good!

                                                      Here is a look at all three projects.

So what plans do you have for using a little spray paint on this Autumn?
We hope we have inspired you to grab that can of spray paint and get to work!
Remember, keep it Homespun!

A wise son brings joy to his father,
but a foolish son grief to his mother.
Proverbs 10:1

Homespun With Love
