You know we've spent the spring re-doing our front yard, trying to interject some curb appeal. One thing we really wanted was a new door.
You can see the white paint is dingy, the doorknob was a unclassy mix of old and new. It isn't noticeable in this photo but the glass was a pebble pattern in lemon-lime color. I also wasn't a fan of the doorknocker. But new doors are pricey and being that our house is 60 years old, nothing is flush so it would require a custom job.
Rather than shelling out the bucks, I Leigh-bellished the door. I wanted a fun, funky color- lime, purple, peacock, teal....but I was vetoed.
The door, surprisingly, required 4 coats of high-gloss black paint.
But the Leigh-bellishment didn't stop there.
It is very "in" to have your house number on the door but ours in on the mailbox. Others have "welcome" on their door, but we aren't that formal so I used my silhouette to cut "hi".
Little JMU stick people, the dog doesn't look like Chester but better than nothing.
Maybe I'll change the "hi" to a fun color??
I think I'm going to paint the pots white
What color is your door?
