$20 DIY Spring Doorstep Makeover

Sunday, April 20, 2014

My doorstep was in dire need of a spring spruce up but I wasn't willing to spend much money. I decided to make use of what I had around the house and come up with some fun and colorful spring outdoor decor! Stay tuned for a chance to win a $50 Dollar General gift card at the end of the post!!

I headed to Dollar General to grab a copy of All You magazine. I found some super cute money saving tips for spring!

I love the challenge of changing something up while spending the least amount of money possible. I got to work finding stuff around the house.  This was my blank canvas.

I grabbed a garage sale planter that needed a little TLC...

As well as this old red chair that was also a garage sale find from a very long time ago

I used some chalk paint that I already had on hand and gave the chair and planter a new look. Combine that with some flowers and this little portion of the makeover was about $5!

Next, I grabbed this plain doormat for $6 at the hardware store.

I stuck on some painter tape in a zig zag/chevron pattern

And after using some leftover white spray paint, I had a new and cute mat!

My favorite part of the makeover is definitely the giant chalkboard. I've had this huge empty frame sitting in the garage for years. It was in someone else's trash and I knew it had potential.

We got a scrap of drywall from Lowe's for $5 and spray painted it with chalkboard paint, gave the frame a new coat of white spray paint and we were done!

It will be fun to change out the message from season to season.

And finally, I hung my spring wreath (that used to be a fall wreath) on the door.

Not too shabby for less than 20 bucks!
