Make An Entrance!

What does your front door say about you? Does it look forgotten and worn with only a 10 year old dusty wreath to welcome your guests? Think you can't afford to transform it? I bet I can prove you wrong!

So, take a look at this front entrance. Not bad. Not good. Just a bit dull and uninspired, no? 

With only a few inexpensive changes, I think you'd agree that they now have a really warm and inviting front entry that would wow even passersby. Here's all they did:

First they took off that unattractive storm door and replaced it with a retractable screen door that when not in use is practically invisible. It's housed on the side of the door frame but still is great when you want to feel the breeze on a nice day. This allowed them to paint their wood door a bold red which is a fabulous color for re-sale, by the way. By using frosting film on the windows customized with their house number, it really makes the door feel special. Vintage lighting, a new mat, mailbox and planters and they have a whole new look!

One visit to your local home store could provide you with all you need to recreate this look or come up with a look all your own. 

That's my brief tidbit for the day...hope it helps!

LLOVVVVVVVVVEEEEE IT!!! I have always wanted a red door. loveit loveit loveit!! BUT my other house was white with green shutters (so I didn't want to be the Christmad house) and this house is blue with with shutters (so I don't want to be the 4th of July house) I just lovingly admire other red doors:)

I know exactly what you mean! I have contemplated painting ours red about a hundred times, but because our house is a mossy green, I'm afraid of the Christmas-y vibe too! :( Oh, well...we'll just continue to admire them from afar.
