I need a break…

For my regular readers, you may have noticed my absences these days.

I simply have too much on my plate and the impending holidays have just tipped me into overload.

Something had to give and, unfortunately, until the new year, it’s going to have to be my blog writing.

I will be back after the new year, I enjoy writing too much.

Happy holidays and a happy new year to you all!

See you in the new year!

 

Sensational Color Combos…Gunmetal Gray House & Brick Red Door

Sensational Color Combos are a front door and a house both painted nice colors, but put those two nice colors together and the combo takes them from being merely nice to absolutely sensational.

It’s the Front Door Freak’s take on “The whole is greater than the sum of its parts.” :-)

Such a pretty front door…

I look at pictures of front doors all day long.

Honestly, after awhile, some of them start to look the same…

Then, one will pop up that is just special and stands out above the rest.

When I find one those special doors, I feel it’s my duty to feature it :-)

Here’s one…isn’t this a really pretty front door!

Forest Green Front Doors!

Where have I been?

When I pulled up the blog to post today, I realize I haven’t posted for an entire week.

I guess I just needed a break for the holidays :-)

In any event, I am back, energized and ready to bring you some pretty front doors!

As pondered what front door color to feature, it occurred to me that we are going to get our Christmas tree today and that I should, somehow, use that as my inspiration.

Hmmmm, how to loop back to a Christmas tree?

I couldn’t think of anything creative, so I am going with obvious…forest green front doors!

Enjoy!

If this were my front door…

I have not done any front door styling in a long, long time!

I saw this classic black door and thought it was so lovely and it just seemed to scream, “Style me!”

So without further ado, here is my styling twist on a classic black door…

A door mat with a good message

I saw this door mat and it caught my eye because it was different.

Not only does it look different from typical coir door mats, I liked its message.

While I clearly like my holiday door mats, I thought it might be nice to add a door mat with a good message to my personal door mat inventory…

Another DIY etched glass door

In the past, I have featured lovely doors that were “etched” by their owners. You can see them here and here.

Yesterday, I ran across another DIY etched glass door that was too pretty not to share.

The owner did this using vinyl sheets that look like frosted glass and then cut the pattern out using one of those electric cutters that attaches directly to your computer. The electric cutter cuts the pattern you’ve programmed in. The person who did the door above mentioned using a Silhouette. The other brand I’ve seen for this is Cri-Cut.

I have no personal experience with this type of system, but if it’s as easy as they seem on their websites, this could be a pretty simple and flawless project. While the cutter and materials may cost a couple of hundred dollars, it would seem that would proabbly be less money that getting your glass door professionally etched or even more so, it would definitely be less than a brand new door. Plus, then you’d own a useful cutting machine for future projects.

If you embark on a DIY etched glass door project, send me your before and afters. I’d love to see them!
