Front Door

I couldn't make up my mind on what I wanted to do with the front door.  I have a half moon window at the top of the door and kinda assumed nothing would go well with it.  However, after blogging and seeing what everyone else is doing, I realized that I CAN have something on my front door too!  I felt with that the front door looked un-welcoming without a wreath or some kinda of decor.  Here is what I did.

Yeah, you see that unpainted spot from where the old lock use to be- it drives me CRAZY! Every morning when I leave for work I tell myself "I really need to paint that this weekend." I think this weekend might FINALLY be the weekend.  I purchased paint when I was getting paint for the guest room.  Hope I inspired you to get a little something to make your front door a little more welcoming.  Even if you're not a crafter, go buy something: wreath, sign, hanging basket . . . I think the front door sets the tone for the rest of your house.

Very cute! I love the idea of using a pre-cut wooden letter versus messing around with styrofoam. I'll have to file this away in my projects folder. :)

OK Miss Crafty. Do you have any suggestions on how to store those "extra" photos that you want to look at every once in a while but don't want in your scrap book???
