Front Door Makeover with Balsam Hill
I teamed up with Balsam Hill once again, but this time it is for Christmas (last time was for my fall front door makeover).
I am absolutely in love with my front door entrance. It is elegant and inviting AND it all looks just as gorgeous at night (which I will show a little later in the post).
The wreath and garland are Balsam Hill’s Bay Laurel with Mixed Berries Foliage.
If you would love some gorgeous holiday decor for your home, Balsam Hill is offering my readers a coupon code good through the end of January.
The Single Ball Boxwood Topiaries from my fall front porch were reused, and they will definitely stay outside the front door year round as they work well with each season.
My topiaries, garland and wreath are lit and make a beautiful statement once the sun goes down (which is way too early here in Indiana).
I also added a couple of Balsam Hill’s Candela Crossbar Lanterns.
I put the Miracle Flame Outdoor Battery-Operated Candle in each lantern, and the glow is perfect.
Right before I was getting ready to take photos of my front door, I saw a post by The Painted Hive. Kristine updated an outdated door by painting over glass panels.
I need to preface this by saying that from the day we moved into our home three years ago, I have never loved our door. It is not an antique (the previous owner added it soon before we bought the house). I wanted a solid door – the fancy glass is not my style. I always tell people home decor is like clothes. We all like different styles of dress, and well all prefer different styles of decor in (and outside in my case) our homes.
You can see the fancy glass here in my fall decorated front door…
I had to do a little persuading, but Steve agreed to let me cover the glass (even though he thought I was crazy). I promised I would make it removable in case it turned out to be a disaster.
I began by using wrapping paper to make a pattern of the glass.
Once the pattern was made, I traced it on to some thin plywood I had leftover from an earlier project.
I cut two pieces out for the front and inside of the door and used caulk to hold the board in place (remember I promised Steve I’d make it removable).
I did have to us a couple nails to hold the board in place while the caulk dried.
I picked THE COLDEST days for this project, and I tried to keep the cold air out.
After an afternoon, the caulk was dry and the door was freshly painted and my glass was gone (or hidden).
