Falling into the realm of “things I’m super happy I got around to this summer,” the door upgrades that I did recently deserve special attention.
Revamping both sides of the front door were tutorials I developed for DIY Network. One, my tried-and-true methodology for painting a front door (AKA ‘out with the plain white,’ AKA I surveyed the neighborhood for color inspiration and realized that 90% of homes have white doors – total snooze, therefore I-must-do-the-opposite); the second tutorial was a complete trial to test how vinyl adhesive wallpaper could be used to transform a door. Both are so perfect and fitting for our home.
Can we just take an extra moment of pause to remember how dark and dingy the entryway looked when the inside of the door was a natural, dark brown? Paired with the flagstone floor and the maple floors that extend towards the entry, the light wood patterned vinyl self-adhesive wallpaper offers an entirely different look for our home.
One more thing, I owe you info on that radical lockset that we bought. Best knob and deadbolt ever. You’ll want one too. (Update: Read up on that right here.)
For more detail surrounding how we chose that spiffy green paint from Sherwin Williams called Edamame, check out this post.
