Front porch sneak peek…

Christmas came a little early to our house this year.  Home Depot asked me to style my front porch for their blog.  You want to see some confused little trick-or-treaters, decorate your front door with garland and Christmas lights instead of pumpkins and cobwebs. 
Here’s a little sneak peak…

  1. how do you keep the chalk from smearing?

  2. Michelle your front porch looks fantastic! I love the chalkboard and the family photo…very clever. Really nice job!

  3. Thanks Karen!

    Amy, smearing is inevitable but when I’m drawing on it have to be careful not to rest my arm on the board. As long as no one touches it, it’s fine. It’s the training little boys not to touch that is the hard part. :)

  4. I love all the details, the boot pan and the chalk board and the candles in jars … I might copy one or two of these ideas for our entry, because they are really supercool!!!
