Porch Decorating the Rustic Repurposed Vintage Way

$6
15 Minutes
Easy

Yesterday was an estate sale day of shopping for me! I was looking for a few new/old/rustic/vintage things to add to my front porch. Yup, It's that time of year again to switch from summer to fall. Below you can see what I found and what I did with them. Next weekend I might just have to go out searching for a few more interesting items ;)
RUSTIC VINTAGE SHOVELS
Over 100 years old each - I found these shovels at an estate sale in NJ for only $6 for both. They are caked with old dirt, concrete, and who knows what else. Call me nuts but that's the way I like them!
COLORED CHALK
Had this packet of chalk for drawing on the shovels. I will be putting these shovels on a covered porch so the chalk shouldn't get washed away once they're drawn on.
1st DECORATED VINTAGE SHOVEL
One shovel drawn on with regular chalk. As you can see, I'm no artist :)
2nd DECORATED VINTAGE SHOVEL
The other shovel is also done with the regular chalk.
REPURPOSED RUSTIC VINTAGE SHOVELS
I already had the shovel on the right so I also decorated that one with the chalk. There you have it - 3 fun fall shovels. These can easily be erased and changed out for the Christmas season too. Then there is New Year's, Valentines Day, Easter, etc. ;)
