Hubby painted the front door black this summer. We’ve only lived here 10 years, so that’s not bad eh? For the first few years, there were other projects that took priority. But I have to admit, it was me dragging my feet on the color. Decisions are hard sometimes. 😉 Once it was done, all I could picture was a beautiful colorful fall wreath welcoming everyone who came to the door.
Two years ago, I didn’t have time to make a fall wreath (nor did I have a beautiful black door). I went to the Dollarama and bought 2 leaf garlands and wrapped them around an old grapevine wreath. I slapped it on the front door and called it DONE! Last year, a fall wreath still wasn’t right up at the top of my priority list. However, I took a narrow piece of burlap shrub wrap and made a bow…slapped it on the same wreath and put it on the “still white door”. (pictured above)
Come on…someone tell me you’ve done the same thing. Please???
Enter September 2012…the front of our house has a beautifully painted door (and shutters too, btw). I knew I MUST do better. So I picked up these berry picks at Michaels.
