We have had such a warm Fall season that it felt like an extended summer so for a long
time I hesitated to decorate for Fall. But recently the temps have felt like autumn and the
pumpkins in my garden were finally ready to harvest, so I decorated my porch for Fall!
My porch had some stains left by the summer planters so I ordered a larger rug that
would hide them. It was gray so I took that as a starting off point for my porch decor this
year. I had some baskets already that I knew would be big enough to hold the mums,
but I needed something else to go with them.
I bought these crates and liked that they were a little different from each other. I painted
them gray to tie them together and to match the rug.
Thanks to my handy dandy Super Finish Max sprayer, it was easy and FAST to paint
the crates. The sprayer gives it a nice, even finish. I prefer several thin coats over one
thick coat. I think the project looks better in the end and you are less likely to have drips.
It was a bit rainy that day (even though it was sunny) so I used my spray shelter to keep
the rain drops off my project while it was drying in between coats.
After the crates were dry, I stenciled a cute Fall saying on one of the crates. It is an easy
DIY that adds a little something extra to the overall look of the porch. I made the stencil
with my Cricut but you can find pre-made stencils on Amazon and at craft stores.
I love the crates because they help add height and dimension to the tiny space. The
mums, pumpkins, and cabbage are the perfect touch and go well with the gray.
Do you decorate for Fall? I’d love to hear what you use to decorate for this fun season!
