The fabulous (and I DO mean fabulous) Shawn at Seriously made me this personalized message board! It's a glossy tile that I can write on! Perfect for my grocery lists! Thank you so much Shawn...I love it!
I also received an EXTRA something from Sare who had already sent me two PERFECT cards. She made me an "X" pendant! Only I forgot to take a picture, but I will post that soon...because I have more to share about her coming up!
Now on to the PAR-TAY! The most awesome Amanda at Serenity Now is hosting a Decorating Dilemmas party! You should totally party with us! Grab the button from her sidebar, share your dilemma and go link up over at Amanda's! I hope she does this every month!
Here's my dilemma. I'm bored with my front door and want help accessorizing my porch. Well my whole house needs lots of work...I haven't really done ANYTHING with it since we bought it, and I need all your fabulous ideas. But we'll just stick with the door and porch for now. Please don't click and enlarge it...I don't want you to see how dirty the door is!
So you can see that our house is brown brick. The door and eves and garage door are ivory. Then the trim is dark brown. I'd love to paint the door a different color. But I don't know which color will be best.
You can see I have a long front porch. What would you do with this porch?
Also, if I paint the door, should I paint it on both sides? If so I need a color that will go well inside as well. I'm using browns, blacks, and neutrals in my living room decor, but the one big thing that is a handicap for me in my decorating is this horrid pink carpet. I just don't have it in the budget to replace it right now...so whatever I do musn't clash with the gaggy pink.
Okay, something is wrong with Blogger, because it's not allowing me to put my pink carpet picture up! It's just a really blechy dark mauve color, I seriously don't know what the previous owners were thinking. Whatever...I'm ready for you to lay it on me!
What color should I paint my door? Should I paint it inside too? How would you decorate my porch?
Let the ideas start pourin' in! PLEASE!
