DIY Vintage Farmhouse Door Tutorial For Front Porch

The below post contains affiliate links.
I'm not sure what to really call this thing. It's like a door, but miniature. Heavy like a door for sure :)  I'm just using it on my porch, but there are a ton of different ways you can display it and put it in your house. I found something similar to this at a vintage sale I went a few months back, and they were asking gobs of money for it, like $130. Yeah. It was so cute, me and my friend had to make one for ourselves. We made both of ours for about $16 each...minus the wreath and bow. So, total, maybe in the low $20s.

I've been loving my porch this past year ever since I redecorated it and thought this would be the perfect addition.

The supplies I used:
1 piece of bead board cut at 18x32" (I bought a 32"x48"' piece and cut mine to size)
1 piece of 1/4" plywood 18x24" (I bought a 2x4' piece and cut it to size)

Paint Pouring Technique on Terracotta Pots

I was provided product by DecoArt and compensated to write about this project, but all thoughts, opinions, and ideas are my own :)
Now that the weather is beautiful outside, I'm starting to spend more and more time outdoors on my porch. This is my go-to place all summer!

Last year, I just used a plain terracotta pot for my porch flowers, but I wanted to spruce it up a little bit this year. 

DecoArt came out with a new paint pouring program, which is amazing! The possibilities are endless with these mediums! I wanted a cool paint dripping look with my pots, so I decided to see what it could do on terracotta!

Best Farmhouse DIY Decor Projects For Your Home

I've been in my house for almost 10 years, and for first 7 to 8 years of that I changed my style like twice a year. I couldn't quite figure out what I liked. Well, now that my house has stayed pretty much the same for a couple of years, I think it's safe to stay I found my style :) That's a great feeling! Don't get me wrong, I love moving things around and giving my space a whole new feel twice a year...but, it feels just as good being content and happy with how things are and not having to adjust anything.

So, what's my style? I would consider it modern farmhouse. This style is so flexible it can almost fit anything. Do I live on a farm? No, but I did at one point own 8 chickens and 2 ducks. I have farms in my neighborhood. But, that doesn't matter :) How many people love the coastal look and live thousands of miles for any ocean, right?
