New Door Decor


I do apologize for the long overdue post . . . but a recent family trip has put me quite behind.

However, I do have a little project to share with you that I just so happened to finish the very day we left! And, believe me, it's easy as pie!

I pulled out a piece of plywood I had left over from the Christmas records project . . .


and painted it with that precious teal color left over from the baby's room.



After printing off our house numbers from Word,


I taped it on the wood and traced it with a Sharpie.


(You may have to go over it a couple of times to make sure it bleeds through.)


Finally, I painted the numbers black and stuck it right up on the door!


I have to say, it brings a smile to my face.

  4. I am so doing this! We just moved into a rent house that does not have a lot of curb appeal...this will make it pop!

  5. Coming from a long line of fire and police guys, one of their biggest complaints is that people don't have their addresses prominently displayed. That can result in valuable minutes lost when someone needs help NOW! I'd say this takes care of that and right nicely too! Great job and idea!

  7. Nice! Handy for that occasional pizza delivery......

    I do transfers the same way we used to do them at school though. Draw the outline on the back (via a window) with pencil and then turn it over and pencil over the lines, brass rubbing style, which leaves quite a clearly visible line on the workpiece.
