Hey Friends!

I hope you all had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend!

Today, I thought I would share the items that mom & I purchased last week on our little “Mom & Me” shopping date to Kirkland’s! I did a full recap of our date HERE in case you missed it! The shopping trip was part of the “Mommy Makeover” campaign that Kirkland’s has going on this month. We were so happy to be participating in the campaign & my mom was thrilled to be getting spoiled this Mother’s Day!

Spring Porch Makeover with Items from Kirkland's
Pin It

Mom & I had such a great time browsing through Kirkland’s & found SO MANY items that we wanted to take home, but for this trip, my mom was wanting to focus on items that she could use to freshen up her front porch & give it a little makeover for spring/summer.

Here is a look at mom’s porch “Before”…..

Not too bad…..but not too great either. The space was looking a little bare and wasn’t giving the first impression that she wanted for her guests. But, after a quick trip to Kirkland’s (and shopping the house a bit), the space looks completely different now…..

Ahhh! Much better!

I don’t know about you, but I’m loving this fresh new look! I’m really diggin’ the mixture of whites & creams combined with the blue & green accent pieces. It’s soft, it’s calm, it’s beautiful! 

The blue linen pillows were added to the white rocking chairs to bring just a touch of color to the space.

We created a couple of vignettes on each side of the door using items that we purchased from Kirkland’s, as well as items that mom already had on hand.

This olive metal planter came from Kirkland’s as well as the floral arrangements inside of it. We purchased three of these 10 inch arrangements to fill the planter.

Here is a look at the vignette on the opposite side of the door. This one is also a combination of Kirkland’s purchases and things we found shopping the house!

I love this adorable hanging chalkboard that we bought. The scalloped edges & the floral cut-outs are just too cute! It hangs perfectly on the rocking chair and is such a great way to write little messages for her guests!

The metal lantern was also a Kirkland’s find. We loved the color of it & it tied in perfectly with the other blue/green items we had. It holds three tealight candles, which will create a soft & pretty glow at nighttime.

The hydrangea basket on the front door was another purchase that we made on the day of our shopping trip. I love the way it looks hanging on my mom’s front door! The perfect touch of spring! 🙂

And just because I always love a good “before & after“, let’s take a look back at where we started once again…..

And what it looks like today…..

LOVE!! 🙂
