Confession time. I have never achieved my front porch goals or even come close! Houses with gorgeous farmhouse style porches have always been my favorite. I look at them and then stick a planter on my stoop and never do anything else. Then I forget to water the plant and it dies. Doesn’t that sound inviting? When I think of porches I automatically think of Chip and Joanna Gaines home. Joanna doesn’t over-decorate her porches but they are always so welcoming.
