When Bed Bath & Beyond approached me to collaborate, I knew exactly what area needed a spring refresh. My poor front porch was still sportin its Christmas look. In March. Yikes. I saw this as an opportunity to get my life together. So I did what any reasonable human would do and spent hours pouring through their site. It was easy to get lost- so many lanterns, planters, and doormats, oh my. Here's what I picked and some steps I took (fine- I still have one more item to mark off my list!) to give our front porch a little love and the spring makeover it deserved. 

After I took down all the old Christmas stuff, I shopped Bed Bath & Beyond for fresh items for spring. I ended up going for a classic look with a little bit of a modern touch (lookin at you tall, sexy planter). I've rounded up my favorites for you here!

Next, I scraped off the old peeling paint on our doorstep and repainted it

I also swapped our house numbers which is such a good beginner DIY! I pulled the old numbers out, filled the holes, repainted the post, and installed the new numbers. You can see the old numbers here (and me mid-Christmas take down):

After that, I swept the cement and wiped down the door. This is where I should have pulled out the pressure washer. That will happen this weekend. ;)

Meanwhile, I visited a local nursery for plants to supplement the dried eucalyptus and pretty wreath. Did you know some nurseries will put together an arrangement for you in a planter you provide for a small fee (In my case only $5!)? I also dug up my lavender to use in my new tall planter. It's a bit big for this planter so I'll probably get a smaller one but this works for now.

Then, I put it all together. But I couldn't decide so I had a little fun with a more traditional porch and then a little bit of a styled one. Which is your favorite?

If your front porch needs some love, simply freshening up the paint, tackling an easy DIY,  adding fresh planters and plants (faux and real), and a wreath will do the trick! 

But wait, there's more. ha! I also swapped the rug on the back patio. I am LOVING this pop of color! These are a few of my favorite outdoor rugs from Bed Bath & Beyond:
