We’re coming up on ten months since we moved into the house we’re renting and I’m anxious to get all the decorating projects on our first floor wrapped up before the end of the year. I’m hoping to be able to host friends for a holiday party (goal 64 on my 101 in 1001 list!), even if it means having to barricade the stairs so no one sees how messy our home office is upstairs. 😂
We have a pretty fronch porch with tall black shutters and I thought it would be fun to spruce it up in time for holiday entertaining, so I was excited when eBay reached out and asked if I had any home projects I was tackling for the fall. I had no idea their home and garden assortment was so extensive or that 81% of their products are brand new and available with the “buy it now” function.
I found this classic white planter on their site and immediately envisioned it filled with colorful mums and surrounded by pumpkins on our porch. My mom (ever the green thumb in our family) convinced me to add daisies and a couple cabbage plants and I love the way it turned out! I’m also fully obsessed with this chippendale planter but it was just a little too small for the space I wanted to fill so I have it saved in my eBay watch list for a future outdoor project!
Our monogrammed doormat was one of my first purchases after our wedding but eBay has tons of similar options at all different price points (like this, this, and this). I also scooped up this faux magnolia wreath and this metal watering can when I ordered the planter and I feel like they complete the look! Funny story: when I put the watering can down on the porch and went back inside for my camera, I came back out to see Rory lapping up the water in the can and dripping it all over the porch, hence the damp wood and puppy pawprints in some of these pictures!
A few other goodies on my eBay watch list… this gorgeous blue and white lamp, these baby topiaries that I just need in my life, and a new vaccuum cleaner (is this how you know you’re getting old?!). Would love to hear if you’ve scored any great deals on there lately!
