Well, it’s that time of year that the porch needs another makeover.
I hope that my friends and family will feel welcome from the moment they approach the front step.
If you happen to come by what a fun chat we could have! Not sure how to get here? Just follow the rust!
What says welcome more than a rustic garden gate?
Unless it’s a rustic birdbath filled with some of Natures bounty. I picked this one up at a thrift store for $12. I gave it a few shots of grey and black spray paint.
I gathered Indian tobacco and wheat grass from the mouth of the canyon and filled the rest with twigs, a gourd, faux pumpkins, leaves, a cabbage, and sunflowers.
I also tossed in a couple of French tin pots.
I have had my drop leaf table and old cupboard sitting in this corner for a year now. Decided it needed a change.
More rust! I love my $5 shopping cart that just happened to have been one from the neighborhood grocer where I grew up. I remember walking there to buy my 5 cent Butterfinger candy bar. Mr. Allens grocery.
Even the mums are rust!
And is that a bit of rust I see on that Fountain Grass? lol!
My blue bike had started to rust so I gave it a new coat of vintage white. I love rust, but don’t want this baby to rust out.
A bonnet in case I decide to take her for a spin. And yes, I decorate with my over sized zucchini.
I lined the back baskets with burlap and planted Fountain Grass, Rudebeckias, and mums.
A rust-ic funnel offers a bit of feed for the birds.
Morning Glory continues to grow up the branches in my urns. Pumpkins will be added when it cools down more.
And my newest treasure.
Yes, I covered up a lot of the rust with Pistachio Green spray paint from Wal-mart.
But don’t you fret, I left a little just for fun!
How about you, do you like rust?
