Fall Front Porch Fun {with a DIY bench}

I LOVE this time of year! I think I have the MOST decorations for it...well, I can't decide between Christmas and fall, but I love it! Love the colors and the crisp mornings and evenings. Love the smell of wassail cooking on my stove top and love all things with pumpkin! Yum!

Well, today I get to share with you my own little touch of fall fun, 

Last year I did a mini pumpkin patch out front and while I loved it!!!...at the same time, this year I wanted something different too. I wanted to do something more to my front porch area and add a splash of color without painting the front door. I also wanted something that could handle the wet weather. I've been working on different parts of everything in this pic for over a month now. And finally...I think I have it all together! And I love it! In fact, I may have to hang out there all day! haha

I wanted a bench, but it needed to be semi-skinny...not too deep, and these two items worked great to repurpose into a fun front porch bench! AND they cost me NOTHING!

to this!!!

Yes, I am in love with it! AND I absolutely love love love! putting just a bit more charm on it with this quote: 
"Sitting next to you doing absolutely nothing, 
means everything to me."

Did you notice my super cool post (sign holder) up in the corner too? I have been trying to get this puppy done for months and it finally is up. LOVE it! So...Of course, I had to make a couple different signs to change the color up a bit here and there as well.

And with minimal changes, here and there, I can change it up easily for Thanksgiving as well!

Then, I just flipped that pumpkin around and did the backside with another fun saying.

I'll be posting more on how I made the post sign hanger soon and will even do a DIY on how to make one yourself! What is your favorite time of year to decorate for? And what would you hang on the post sign holder? I'm working on some favorite college football fun to add as well. (Gig 'Em Aggies!)

Happy Fall! And check back tomorrow for one of my favorite kind of posts. From this to that Friday! (except this time it's with a recipe that I "healthified"!)

I always wonder where you keep ALL of your decorations since you always have so many:) Super cute and very easily changeable.
