How to jazz up your front door

Aug 29th, 2012
Now that I’m looking at these pictures, I’m realizing that my wreath is looking dry and sad. So if you see a DARLING wreath out there that could compete with my lima bean wreath, send it my way. I loved that darn lima bean wreath and it broke. Maybe I should just make it again! I’ve been trying to achieve THAT level of cuteness ever since it broke.
I am definitely in a chatty mood today.
I do love my painted front door. After all, painting over my UGLY front door was a long time coming. I had meant to paint the darn thing for three years. {EMBARRASSING}. But, I saw the cutest idea from Ginger Snap Crafts who was originally inspired by Jonny in a Dress.
This fun simple “hello” added just the touch I was looking for! My brother in law thinks I should put a “goodbye” on the back of the door so that when you leave you see that too! I just might have to do that.
I used navy vinyl and cut it out in two seconds with my amazing Silhouette CAMEO machine. I use my CAMEO all the time.

  1. I love your front door! I have yet to give my front door its much needed makeover, but it hasn't been forgotten! I'm actually hoping to paint the entire house next year…yikes! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. Love it….now you have me thinking I need a Camo. I assume you really like it. Is it pretty easy to use? Just wondering… Thanks :)

    OH OH OH – use the CAMEO and make a bunch of fabric flowers for a wreath…. in a FABU color ensamble… I saw they have multi layered ones….. and different types….. :D -that would be neat-o :)

    I noticed that the other day, and told Londyn how darling it was!

  5. I am sorry if I missed this somewhere else but what color and brand paint is that? It looks like pretty much the perfect color for my front door! Thanks so much :)

    The color is "backstroke" from Valspar. :) I sealed it with out outdoor polyurethane though to protect it since it was an indoor paint. I also glazed it. You can find the instructions at the post found:
