Painting Projects for your Porch

by Kari Gibbs on December 13, 2023

Painting for your porch is an easy way to add curb appeal to your home and show off your decor style. 

But not everyone's porch is the same. You may have room for tall porch signs, or you may have room for door mats. Regardless your space, we have design ideas for you. 

1. Tall Porch Stencils

When you think of porch, you may think of our Tall Porch Signs! You aren't alone! Our 4ft, 5ft and 6ft designs are our BEST SELLING stencils! Not only are they great for your own porch, but these are also Best Sellers at vendor and craft shows all year long! 

You can grab dimensional lumber at your local or big box hardware store. We get #2 pine. And we use 1" thick, 12" wide (although this can range from 11"-12") and then 4ft, 5ft or 6ft tall.

2. Doormat Stencils

Doormats are great little additions to add to your porch! And just like with any other piece of decor, it can be hard to find one that you love. The design. The saying. The colors. That's why we made a collection of doormat stencils: so you could make your own. 

We like to use the Trampa coir doormat from Ikea. 

You know us, we like to make SEVERAL sizes for our designs. You can use some of the smaller sizes to paint wood signs to hang on your front door or porch. Or you can use the BIGGEST designs (29-30 inches wide) to paint on doormats!

If you're painting on a doormat, there are some tips you'll want to keep in mind. Check out those tips while watching our Doormat Playlist! CLICK HERE TO WATCH!

3. Stacked Signs for your Front Door

Stacked signs are an AMAZING new trend! Round door hangers came on the scene within the last couple of years and as the designs evolved, layers came into play and now stacked signs are all the rage. 

These are quick and easy projects that you'll want to have jumbo daubers and ink sweepers for. 

Make sure you check out our YouTube playlist on these for tips on painting, gluing and varnishing! WATCH HERE!

4. Personalized Address Stencils

We loved personalized stencils for your home, including address stencils. These make great gifts for new homeowners and can also help spruce up your curb appeal. 

As with all outdoor signs, you'll want to varnish these with a matte polyurethane to protect them from the elements.

5. Porch Themed Stencils

We know that every porch is different. Maybe you don't have room for a really tall sign. Or maybe your door is too low to the ground to put a mat out front. That's why we also have several welcoming porch designs in several sizes that you could hang on your door, or siding, by a screw in the brick, or even just stack by your furniture.
