Hello friends! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend. Mine didn’t go as planned, but sometimes that’s okay, right? I had an extensive to-do list that I was determined to start working through on Saturday. But, my baby boy and I were sitting on the sofa Saturday morning and I asked him what he wanted to do. His response, “swim.” Soooo, we picked up a small inflatable pool at Walmart and I watched my baby swim all day until his heart was content. I did manage to sneak in a few minutes to pull together a vintage patriotic porch though, and I’m going to share that with you all today.
If you are visiting here from The Painted Hinge, welcome! I’m so glad you stopped by. I love making new friends!! If you’re new here, you will quickly see that I love all things vintage. Like, I have a small obsession. Okay, a big obsession. So if vintage decor gets you excited too, we are practically best friends already. By the way, if you missed my indoor vintage inspired patriotic decor, you can check it out HERE.
Alrighty, let’s go hang out on the front porch!
Vintage Patriotic Porch Tour

When decorating any area, I like to mix in old and new pieces to tie the space together. I picked up this red, white and blue striped rug and the door decor at Target in the bullseye section. That is one of my go-to places for holiday decor fillers. By that, I mean small, inexpensive stuff that I like to add here and there. I DIY’ed the Oh Hello door mat, which has been one of my many favorite DIYs.
Now let’s move on to the vintage goodies! Nothing says Fourth of July more than Coca-Cola, right! I had this Coca-Cola crate in storage that I pulled out to use. A good tip is to pull from your current decor for holidays, based on color. I always pull out reds for Valentine’s Day, Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Christmas. And this red Coca-Cola crate could easily work for any of those holidays.
The mini chalkboard was another Target bullseye find. I had my sister hand letter the chalk art because my handwriting leaves a lot to be desired. I can DIY just about anything, but hand lettering is my nemesis.
The vintage water jug is something that I picked up on one of my most recent junkin’ excursions. I thought it would work perfect for my patriotic porch because of the red and blue label. It’s hard to find jugs with the labels still intact so I snagged this one quickly when I saw it.
Another symbolism of the Fourth of July are picnics. So I added my vintage picnic basket to the mix. This picnic basket reminds me of my late grandmother, which makes me love it even more.
I also added a few vintage red thermoses because, well, they are red.
Moving on to the crocks. Ahh, I LOVE vintage stoneware crocks! It’s another of those items that I have to buy when I see (if the price is right, of course). They are great to put plants in, but currently mine are being used to hold flags.
You are probably starting to notice a trend by now. Yes, I have an obsession with vintage collections. I just can’t help myself.
I picked up these flag banners at Hobby Lobby after the Fourth of July last year for 80 cents each! Thrifty shopping is another obsession of mine.
I just painted this bike and planned to style it in my flower bed, so I thought why not decorate it for the Fourth for now. So that’s what I did. It’s a little different than my usual decor so I’m not quite sure what to think about it yet.
I hope you’ve enjoyed hanging out on my patriotic porch with me today and that I was able to give you a little inspo. Please come back and visit again soon!
Have a Happy Independence Day and be blessed, my friends!
