Our Current Door The Goal!
My husband and I moved into our house nearly two years ago now and sadly we haven’t been able to make much of a dent in our “yay-we-have-a-new-home” to-do list. One of the many things I wanted to do right away was replace our front door. Relaity set in quickly once we realized how much a fancy new front door actually costs. But, being the DIY lady that I am, I still have hopes of trying to spruce up the one we currently have and make it into something we love.
I recently spotted this posh black door on Flickr and the gorgeous ice blue door on Simply Seleta and haven’t been able to stop thinking about them since. Though this wouldn’t fit with our homes asthetic I decided to try to create what I had in my head in Photoshop real quick. My rendering skills are a mess but it gets the idea across and helped me visualize it all together. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to create the faux trim that I crave but I’m now on the hunt for some door makeover tips and tricks.
How about you guys, seen any amazing doors or have any advice you could pass along? Once I start to tackle this for real I’ll be sure to let you know how it goes. Happy Monday and have a great week everyone!
