Are you ready to transition from Christmas to winter? I’ve got you with two easy quick winter porch refresh ideas. Come see!
Hi, I’m Regina, welcome to Saved From Salvage. Join me in my journey to make my house a place I love.
on the porch
On the front porch I had this tin from Goodwill. I bought two of them for $3 last year.
It’s perfect for a few logs that we keep out front during the winter.
A perfect project to try my Dixie Belle Snowflake Stencil on.
I also had a blank coir doormat that I made to match with the same stencil. Now my porch is still festive and fun but not Christmasy anymore.
This was easy and quick. I used 2 coats of paint, then the paint for the stencil, then a layer of a clear coat to seal it for the outdoors.
This color paint is so pretty. What do you think?
- DIXIE BELLE TERRA PAINT IN BLUE MOON
- DIXIE BELLE TERRA PAINT IN MOONBEAM
- DIXIE BELLE CLEAR COAT IN SATIN
- DIXIE BELLE SNOWFLAKE STENCIL
- PAINTERS TAPE
Adding my first coat of paint to the tin.
After one coat of Terra Clay Paint.
After my second coat, I then taped on the stencil and got ready to paint.
The Dixie Belle Terra Clay in Moon Beam was the perfect companion color for snowflakes.
I always make sure to dab excess paint off of my brush before stenciling to prevent bleeding.
I stenciled all the snowflakes then began adding more to the outside.
How bright and beautiful.
Adding my coat of Dixie Belle Clear Coat.
Now it looks right at home on the porch.
It looks great next to the door mat don’t you think?
before and after
This was another easy and quick project. These would make such a nice custom gift for someone.
Using the Dixie Belle Paint in Cotton, I stenciled several snowflakes on the mat. I chose not to add any words, just snowflakes like the tin.
Even Dempsey approved of the snowflake mat.
