Front Door Makeover

Yikes! I fell of the face of the crafty planet. I have not gotten a whole lot done lately, and what I have? Well, who wants to see how I hemmed a shirt from the thrift store? Exactly no one. But! I did get a wild hair and decided to repaint my door. I have wanted to for a long time. Our house's color scheme doesn't exactly lend itself to new color scheme (it is cream and brown...wha???). Alas, I decided to paint the door anyway because I can!

I chose a dark tealy-green color that I will also be using on my stair risers. Painting the door was pretty straight-forward. I won't bore you with the details. The decal I ordered from The Orange Sofa via Etsy. It took a while to get here, but it was cheap! Like, 5 bucks cheap.

I ordered silver because I was afraid the black wouldn't show up too well. I think it would have been fine but I like the silver too. Its fun!

The wreath is made from scrapbook paper and cardboard. Totally high tech. I made paper pinwheels and hot-glued them willy-nilly all over a cardboard ring.

The centers are buttons. Of which I have a few....hundred....or more. But now I have 8 less! I really want to make one of these in a red, white and blue version too!


  1. I love the door and decal and P thinks it's adorable. Yay!

  2. You are so clever. I don't have a creative bone in my body. The door and wreath are beautiful. I might "borrow" your idea, if it's all right. (Smile).
