Update to Front Porch Facelift!

Ok well I got my vinyl today!!  I’m so giddy!  I ended up going to a local sign shop and the guy cut it for me there.  It was vinyl heaven with lots of colors to choose from and fonts etc.

Sooo, here is my door now!

Do you love it??  It makes such a difference!  I knew it would look good but didn’t know I would love it THIS much.

What I REALLY love is that it matches our trim paint exactly, and is not stark white.  Not that anything is wrong with stark white vinyl, but I like how this still makes a statement, just a little more subtle than bright white.  And if you have bright white trim, white would be the way to go!

Here are some more pics.

I’m in love with vinyl now.  I see a lot more trips to the sign shop in my future, unless of course I win a Silhouette.  Ha!  It definitely does make it more inviting don’t you think?

    this! Great job!

  14. HUGE difference! I made the hop over from Someday Crafts. Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to nose around your blog for a bit…

  15. Beautious (beautiful + gorgeous). I love the topiaries, what a transformation.

  16. Great addition to your door!

  17. Very welcoming front porch, love all the greenery too!

  18. Love the redo! We painted our door black and added white vinyl (to match our trim) numbers. I think it’s a classic look — great job!

  19. Looks fabulous & very welcoming!

  20. Looks so chic and classic!! Your door must be the most fabulous in the neighborhood!!! = )

  21. Such a great idea!!! Need to find me a sign shop… :)

  22. I love it! Aren’t black doors the best? Good job!

  23. I showed my neighbor your site and she is totally excited to update our doors similarly. We have doors right next to eachother so we try to cordinate. Thanks for the inspiration.

  24. Looks wonderful. I love the way it pops on your front door. I, too, just completed a front porch facelift.

  25. That front door looks fabulous! I would like to do something like that too. So I have I have a question. (I guess I should stop looking at blogs and start painting.) And forgive me if I’ve already asked, cuz I thought I did, but I can’t find it. Anyway, is your front door a wood door? We’ve got that kind of metal, aluminum, type door (I don’t know what they’re called but I think that’s what builders use now). And I want to eventually paint the front door but I’m a little worried cuz it’s not wood. So…that’s why I’m asking what material your door is. Whew, I hope I’m not too confusing. Thank you!!!

    • Thanks Eve! I’m a dork and not even sure what kind it is, but I think it’s the aluminum kind. Both kinds should work regardless. Let me know. :)

      • Haha, I’m the dork. At least you actually do projects, instead of admiring others! Thanks for the tip, I do plan on trying that someday. I’m currently taping off my laundry room to test the rainwashed color! I’m excited :)

  26. Cutest door ever! I LOVE it! It turned out so cute! I’d love for you to link it up @ iheartnaptime.blogspot.com

  27. I love it! But I ADORE your topiaries! Are they DIY by any chance?

  28. That looks awesome. Did you know we have a vinyl supplier on http://www.DIY Club inc and you can buy her designs or the plain vinyl and enter into the contest. The winners peize package is about $200 for July.

  38. HI!! I LOVE your blog! I just recently found it and so I have been only been following for about a month now. Anyway – I was just poking around today and saw this old post and just love love love it! You have such great ideas and great taste! :) I sell vinyl for a company called Uppercase Living. I am NOT a pressury type at all, but if you are interested in checking it out, I do think you would really like it. Like I said though, please don’t feel pressured – I just saw the “welcome” on your door and thought you might like to check it out. Anyway – jenniferjohansen.uppercaseliving.net Anyway – I think it is much better than other vinyl companies, but obviously I’m biased. :-) OK – I’m done now… haha! I will continue my blog browsing now. THANKS!! -Jenni

  39. BEAUTIFUL!! What color spray paint did your dad use on the door after you painted it with the roller?
