Mini makeover:

My maternity leave days are almost over. And all the things I wanted to get done around the house still haven't happened. So, in an attempt to help myself not feel like a huge failure, I decided to tackle some of the small improvements I had planned with the days I have left. One of the things on my list was to give the front door a makeover.

Since we moved in, our door has been, well, pretty basic. Completely unremarkable. I felt like it was a wasted opportunity. Plus, I have always hated that gold doorknob.

So last week I picked out a color (Valspar's La Fonda Teal), some new fixtures, and got to it. It only took me two naps (the way I measure time now) to complete. 

We are very happy with how it turned out. I love the color. It pops against the white trim and compliments the red brick. And those oil-rubbed bronze doorknob and knocker? In love. Just don't pay any attention to those awful holly bushes in the front. They are the next thing to tackle on my list.
