Make an Entrance

red-door

 

Watch the red carpet roll out for a Hollywood gala and notice how the stars make an entrance. From head to toe, they’re stunning; attired in fashions created by the best designers known to man. Stars realize appearance is everything.

The front door of your house is the red carpet gala event for your home-the first thing your visitors see. Step back and take a good look at it. What’s the impression it gives?

You can give your front door appeal and glamour without spending a fortune and you don’t have to buy a new one either.

Remove the door from the hinges in order to apply a smooth coat or two of paint. Once the painting is dry, new hinges and a new door handle gives the appearance of a brand new door without the cost of one.

For the wider doors with the long windows beside them, instead of hanging curtains or blinds when you need privacy, try using a narrow, stand alone shutter instead.

Happy Decorating!
