New Front Door!

Today was an exciting day - I took the day off from work to be at home because our new front door was installed!


It was amazing to have the day off and semi sleep in, clean like crazy, cook a little, do some laundry...I needed this day to get my life back on track after all of these past weekends away!  More days would be nice but I am thankful to at least have this one to play catch up.  The little girls also loved having me home! Chim wanted to sleep longer than I did.



Around 2:00 my new best friend arrived to install our door!  I kept sneaking downstairs for some peeks.  I snapped a quick sniper photo on one of my sneaks.


I almost got caught!  As for the door, we did end up getting the fiberglass craftsman door from Home Depot we were looking at and also had them install.  He did a great job!  The "time window" (aka most of the day) is semi annoying but worth it.  Love how it ties in some of our dark wood items.



We still have to paint the trim and little touch up spots but loving the bumped up curb appeal!


Had to pose the boots.  Made it look more "styled" (nerd).


Hello paint swatches...you are haunting me.

Now I need to figure out how to hang all of my deco mesh wreaths on here!  Hmm...my front door decorating obsession is going to hit a new level!


It has always been my dream to have a house to decorate and update, and a "wood look" front door has always been near the top of that list so I am so excited and feeling blessed!  I can't wait for Nate to get home and see it!  We love making this house a home!

  1. Hi there, I was wondering where your entry-way rug is from? Your front door makeover looks beautiful! My husband and I just bought our first home and are loving the process too!

  3. What a wonderful door, Laura. The color scheme is effectively complementing the totality of your front door, and the small windows to let light in is a wonderful touch. I'm also looking to replace both my front and rear door and I'm still in the process of choosing the proper design. This has definitely helped. Thanks!

    1. The door came like this from Home Depot! It looks like wood up close, but it is fiberglass. Hope that helps! :)

  5. I like the wooden look of your storm door too, Laura! Its color complemented well with your exterior. Compared to other door styles, this one creates a more serious and private appeal. So what was Nate's reaction when he saw the door's transformation?

  6. Your new door looks great, Laura! It's very inviting especially with the decorations you have there. The plant pots and the rug go well with it too. It was simply gorgeous! I really feel excited to enter a house if it has a wonderful door that welcomes me. You feel the same thing too, don't you? :)

    1. Thank you! Shoot, I don't know the color. It isn't actually paint per se, it is part of the paneling from our house when we bought it!
