We are so excited to be revealing our front porch today! If you haven’t seen this post, be sure to head there to see what this space looked like just last week!

One of the best things we did for this space was finish the floor by painting it with concrete paint.
Since our concrete was raw and unfinished prior to painting, we pressure washed the floor, used a metal trowel to scrape up any concrete globs or other debris on the floor, taped off around the brick and our columns, primed the floor with this concrete primer, and then applied two coats of Slate Gray paint. It was so simple and we honestly can’t believe we didn’t do this sooner.
We wanted this space to really feel like an extension of our indoors and a neutral place for us to be able to enjoy and rest.
One of our favorite things in this space is this brass tripod planter. We decided to move our fig tree (that was in our living room) back onto the front porch and we love the height it adds to this corner.
We brought this bench from IKEA out onto the porch beside the front door to hold plants and to have a place for the boys to sit and take their shoes off before heading inside 😉
Adding this 5×7 Indoor/Outdoor rug really added to making this sitting area more comfortable and truly feeling like another “room” to enjoy.
Loved the idea of adding this magazine rack out here- a modern and practical element.
Our home faces west, so when the sun sets, we get the prettiest glow in the evenings on our front porch and it really is our favorite time to enjoy being out here.
We love having plants in every corner this time of year.
For reference, we wanted to include an exterior photo of our front porch.
We hope you enjoyed this photo tour reveal! Be sure to follow along on Instagram stories as we share a video tour and also a GIF of the entire space coming together!
