Make your own dutch door!?!

Holy smokes!

I know I am a Front Door Freak, but the folks at Garden View Cottage put me to shame!

They posted a tutorial on how to turn your front door into a dutch door.

Yes, you read that correctly…make your own DUTCH door (you know, split in half and two swinging panels).

I adore dutch doors (as evidenced of my week of dutch door posts awhile back), but I don’t think I am brave enough to ever try and make one.

Hats off Garden View Cottage…not only did they make a dutch door, they made a beautiful dutch door!

I stand in awe.

Find the tutorial here.

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!

Its simplicity is stunning.

Sensational Color Combos…Mocha House & Red Door (with black trim)

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.” :-)

Thanksgiving Doormats – 2015

It never ceases to amaze the absolute dearth of Thanksgiving doormats. I wrote the same thing last year!

As I have mentioned in the past, starting with Halloween, I swap my doormats out at every season…Halloween to Thanksgiving to Christmas to Valentines Day. In between the holidays I put my everyday doormat back out.

My Halloween doormat is a pumpkin so I usually just leave that until the Christmas mat comes out. I always feel like I am cheating a bit, so this year, I decided to take a stand and get myself a proper Thanksgiving doormat. After all, if you are going to do, do it right!

In my faded memory, I remember thinking this last year as well, but for some reason another year rolls around and I still do not have a Thanksgiving doormat. So, I decided to hop online and make this the year that I finally get one.

After doing so, I now know why I don’t have one…the selection is EXTREMELY limited!

I had to search far and wide to find the six below!

This year, I think I may attempt to make my own, but since it’s November 11th I better get going :-)

Anyway, if you are not in a crafty mood and you too need a Thanksgiving doormat, below is the best that I could find…

Craftsman Front Doors!

I was fresh out of inspiration today.

Literally, I could not come up with a color selection for my Sunday door color feature.

As I was mulling over my options, I realized I left something in my car and I ran out to get it. I was in my pjs, leopard slippers and all. I am sure I would’ve looked QUITE fetching had one of my neighbors driven by at that moment :-)

Anyway, as I re-entered my house, I considered my front door. I really like my door, it fits nicely with the style of my house. My house is a mid-century ranch and the door is a Craftsman front door…it all works nicely.

Here it is…

So, today I decided to feature Craftsman front doors in all different colors. Mostly people stain them brown, like mine, but every once in awhile you run across one that has been painted a bright color and it is fabulous!

So without further ado, I present Craftsman front doors…Enjoy!
