Ok, I have a decorating pet peeve. Front doors. Let’s face it, the entry is the first place your decorating style is showcased, and it is a main contributor to your curb appeal as well. So many people just accept a cheesy front door picked by their builder, or the former owner, and don’t stop to consider how much it contributes to the overall feel of your home. And it counts even more with small homes, because we have less opportunity to make our home shine! So pull out the paintbrush and have a front door makeover day! Can’t you just see a holiday wreath on some of these front doors? This isn’t hard, and it’s a detail you shouldn’t ignore… if you want proof, check out the before and afters at the end of this post!
