Ya’ll know I love a good makeover. Before and after reveals are my jam. Your front porch is the first thing people see right before they enter your home so I like to set the tone right away. Take a look at your front porch right now. Go on, I’ll wait. Ok, does it say all you want it to say about your home? If not, it might be time for a porch makeover. Schlage reached out to me to participate in a front porch refresh and I knew the perfect candidate: #projectpaintitall.
For #Projectpaintitall , the porch needed a bit more than a refresh– it needed a major makeover. Here is a before photo just to refresh your memory.
So many things wrong. So, so many. The door style, of course, didn’t match the renovations we did but also that hardware is also pretty epic. I think it’s pretty in an antique Anthropologie type way, but it definitely didn’t go with the updated home style. Here is what it looks like after our big refresh:
Of course, a new front door was in order. That was a no-brainer. We also painted the brick, added a new mailbox, and pretty round planters. The new door hardware from Schlage was like the cherry on top of the sundae.
I wanted the door hardware to match the flow of the home. Since we were going for a very mid-century modern feel, we selected the Century Single Cylinder Handleset and Latitude Lever.
It really added so much to the door and porch area and fit in perfectly with the style of the home. Ironically, it’s the exact same handle I chose for our last home, all on my lonesome. It’s really versatile and one of my favorite styles because I feel like it can swing really modern, like it did for this project, but also works for a more transitional home like my last house.
Another thing I like about Schlage handles is the they are really straightforward to install. If you’re never installed one before, these come with a template to help you get it all lined up. Really super helpful.
Schlage has a wide variety of styles to fit your home. And one lucky withHEART reader can give their front porch a refresh using Schlage hardware. They are giving away front door hardware valued up to $500 (winner selects hardware)! Door hardware can make all the difference, especially if you have an outdated door. You can add a wow factor with just a simple switch.

I’m excited to hear about which hardware you would choose for your front porch refresh! Meanwhile, I’ll be finishing up decorating my front porch for the 4th of July holiday. I’ve always wanted to use hanging flag fans and I think with our big railing, I finally have a place to use them!
