In a perfect world, I would have a very large front porch. I’m talking old style wrap around porch with plenty of room for a swing and chairs and I’d read out there and drink coffee and…I’d have a glorious porch. But in reality, my house has a very small porch that only really fits a bench. A bench that the previous owners left and seriously needs some TLC. (It’ll happen, one day…) I want my front porch to look inviting and I love decorating for the season. Unfortunately, the way our porch is designed, it gets hit by all the weather. Rain, pollen (my goodness, the pollen!), wind, etc. I needed a solution that was minimal and *fairly* weather proof. This is where those awesome, multipurpose, wooden crates come in handy!
