Changing up any décor is so easy with spray paint, as in the case of this easy fall porch makeover!
Let’s play a quick game of seek and find. Can you spot the items that I updated with some spray paint?
Spray Paint Flower Pots for Fall Porch
How about some plastic planters I picked up on clearance. Pink really wasn’t working for my fall porch, but the Bauhaus Gold is much better for Autumn, don’t you think?
I also used Satin Iris for a few of my plastic flower pots.
Reclaimed Step Ladder and Spray Paint
I had a couple of old stepladders that I thought would look great on my fall porch with a new look.
I decided to add a small bead board top to the gold step ladder in order to hold items for my fall porch.
The spray paint covered the marked up bead board really well.
Yes, you can spray paint an old ladder!
I personally love how the Satin Iris turned out, (see the after below on the porch) but that’s because I’m such a fan of blue. Not shown: I also sprayed a couple of reclaimed fence boards to make a lower shelf on the blue step stool.
How to stencil a shutter
I made a stencil on my cutting machine and placed it on a black shutter so I could stencil the word WELCOME with the Bauhaus Gold spray paint. You can see the full tutorial for the WELCOME shutter in my post WELCOME Sign Shutter Porch Decor.
Budget Friendly Fall Porch
It’s easy to put together a fall porch display when the porch doesn’t lead to a doorway! This side porch has had the door removed, so it’s just a porch to nowhere.
I added three bails of straw, the updated spray painted projects, and an old tree trunk from when I had a large tree cut down. You can see it in the back right holding the Satin Iris flower pot. It was a great way to elevate the mum. In the foreground you can see the daisy plant pot is covered up with a rustic plant koozy—another great way to disguise cheap pots.
What is your favorite element of my fall porch décor? Have you updated anything with spray paint lately? It’s such an easy fix for seasonal decorating.
