From Curb Side Door to First Impression Art Piece!


Well, with all of our renovations - we have finally reached the decorating stage, and as I typically sell all of my creations - I decided that this one was for us! Displaying just how fun and quirky our little family really is! And now we finally have a place for all of our coats, scarves, purses, sweaters and more! A fun piece not only to make but to display!

The door - Now what I refer to as out Hallway Mantle!
No one is better suited to be quoted on our display more so than the loveable Dr. Seuss!!

The door before I got my hands on it!
This was the original one I had made - but it sold.

    I loved this project, the hardest part was proberbly stripping the old paint off the door.Instead of individual photos I printed a photo quality poster the size of the door of the Paris skyline.To do this I needed a high resolution photo that I purchased online.I love the finished product and I have a lot of comments on it from friends and family. Thank you for the inspiration .

    I like the one you sold, but I absolutely love the one with the pictures! I seriously think it is just so awesome. It looks like something you'd pay a lot of money for. And I love the quote in the middle, my hubby and I always say "your crazy fits my crazy".
