And now, it feels like home!!

When I moved in three months ago I was greeted by a white front door. I knew that had to change…it just didn’t feel like home. The only problem was, it was blazing hot outside, and I would need to leave the door open while painting (not to mention corralling three cats to keep them inside). Well it finally cooled down into the 80’s one day this past week and I was able to change the door from this…

To this!! I LOVE RED!!!



Now it feels like home! Happy Labor Day, Y’all!

Hugs,

Victoria Lynn

It feels like home coz it's got your signature on it now that you've changed it to the colour you love. You've done a great job! Thanks for your lovely comments in my blog, I love hearing from you.Now I've gotta go back and catch up on your older posts.

Gotta love the fact that we're not one of the three people in the neighborhood with a white door anymore. ;~) Love the door, even if Frederica tried to make her grand escape whilst you were painting.

And it looks great from the street, too. hehehe

Love,
Rach :~)

It looks really great. I wish I could change my front door. But my HOA won't let you, they feel it doesn't go with the color scheme, baaa to them.

Hi There BFF,
I love how your door turned out, much better then plain old white! I couldn't believe how many painted doors you had in your neighborhood, I love that people are into painting their doors vibrant colors! We need more of that up here, but it may not happen because all the cool people are in the South!!!

We have had quite a weekend here, today I spent the day cleaning out the shed and pulling down the loft to make it bigger, in between that I got my benches painted and now ready to go with pumpkins! YEA!!!

I will call you tomorrow in the AM and we can catch up on all the happenings of the past two days!
XO,
Donna Lynn

Oh, Victoria, I love how your entrance door looks now... perfect color. I've always wanted a red door on the front entrance.... maybe one day! :).... Oh, I'm sure your new lovely home have lots of beautiful windows to show, so I'm hoping you can participate in our "Window Party" this Friday! :) Send in your pics...

It looks so good!!!Where I live everyone has a plain old door. When I went to the east coast, it was so neat to see different doors and different shutters. Not always matching in color but gorgeous in looks. Wendy
