Shut the Front Door!

posted by Rhiannon


Hi everyone!! I know its been quite awhile since my last post.  But please excuse me...I was busy growing a human.   He is here and healthy and its time for me to get back to work on this ugly little box we call our home.

A project that I have had in mind for quite sometime is re-painting the front door and most importantly adding BIG house numbers so that people can find us. I can't tell you how many times we get calls from service companies, friends, and the all-important Friday night pizza delivery man saying "We can't find  your house". And where we live, saying "the ugly house on the left" could describe just about 90% of this town. I digress...

I don't have many step-by-step photos this time because I was so excited to get a paint brush back in my hand after so many months that I just went at it  and before I knew it, the door was done.



Yes, I even painted the inside black. It looks really good and gives the entry way some much needed detail (and distraction from the wood panelling). I'm thinking about painting the coat closet door, too. But you know how I can get carried away.

And then came the house numbers. This is a stencil I ordered from etsy and it was the perfect size so it can be seen from the road.

Now I just need to figure out what to do with the screen door. Paint it black, too? Get rid of it? Suggestions welcome!!
