Several months ago, I discovered Interior Designer Lizzie Carney's home......Okay, let's just stop right there!
Enough said, right? It's beyond beyond gorgeous and exactly my cup of tea. I will be doing a lot of posts featuring her house, I'm sure, but for today I wanted to show you how I decorated my front door. There's not an actual picture of hers but you can see her door in the beginning of this home tour video shown on Nate Berkus Show. I did this a couple months back so forgive me for not getting before pictures.This is what the end result is
I chose a font I had previously saved from using on my sister's shower invite. It's called 'Little Lord Fontleroy' and you can download it here. I printed the letters and numbers individually in the size I wanted.
Then I placed the carbon paper(black side down) under the paper and taped it in the position I wanted on the door.
I took the closest pencil I could find.....my son's Winnie the Pooh jumbo pencil. It's always more fun when using a jumbo pencil ;)
But it got way to messy and out of the lines, so I found this pen
I love it!!!! It gives the same look and is sooooo much cleaner. Hold your breath, though, cause this tiny puppy gives off some serious fumage.(Another one of my intellectual words)
Finish it off and voila!
I'm really happy with the way it turned out, but now I'm kind of thinking of painting the door black. I painted the inside of the door black and feel it gives an elegant look. I'll be doing a post on my foyer very soon. For now, I'm totally content with it! So what do you think? You like?
