Fresh Front Door
|June 4, 2012||Posted by Jessie under Crafty Things, Outdoors, Paint, Summer|
Welcome back! I hope you all had a great weekend. We were able to spend some time with friends and with both of our families which was great, and we were even able to sneak in a little work in the laundry room. It’s really coming along! Walls are painted, cabinets are painted and installed. Now I just have to add some art work and decorate. Can’t wait to share hopefully soon! For today, I have a simple little way to update your front door for summer. I wanted something other than a typical wreath, so I decided to go for a light, fresh monogram letter.
My original plan was to sand it and rough it up to let the aqua show through, but because I put such a thin layer of gray, it ended up with that look on it’s own. Happy accidents. The finishing touch was to hot glue a pretty white flower. I have a few little decorative watering cans in my dining room with some fake flowers from the Dollar Tree so I just borrowed one from there. I stapled a bright aqua ribbon to the back of each side and hung it around my wreath hook. Get excited, because I created my first collage in PicMonkey to share my pretty monogram:) Just ignore our ugly brown door and way too weathered door mat. Those are on the to-pretty list.
What do you think? Do you have any fun alternatives to the traditional wreath?
These are the fabulous blog parties I link up to each week:
