As you may have seen via our social media, we are currently tackling our entryway! We replaced our door a few months ago and recently had our floors done!Read More
This is one of those projects we weren’t sure we wanted to do, so we sat on it for 10 months. When we did the family room renovation we talked about painting the fireplace brick, but weren’t 100% on board and didn’t want to regret it! So, we replaced the mantle with the reclaimed wood beam and lived in our renovated family room for 10 months. Last week we decided, “let’s paint it!”. I’m SO glad we did and I’m also glad we felt super confident that it was the right decision.Read More

Our new front door!! I have had my eye on this 4-lite style door for so long and am so excited to have it installed in our house! We are slowly updating/modernizing our home, so this definitely feels like it fits in more with our style and our overall plan for the house. It also ties in so nicely with our garage exterior!
Obviously I have no patience and had to share the progress with you guys, because as you can see the door isn’t even painted yet and we have a lot of work to do in the inside.
Here’s the before!
So as you can see we had the fan above the door removed and replaced with a transom, the whole door and sidelights replaced, and we also swapped out the light fixtures to something a bit more simplistic and modern.
We decided to keep the trim really simple to keep with the overall style of our home plan and tie in with the garage.
Here’s a look at the inside before:
As you can see, the new door and transom let in SO much more light. It spills out into the kitchen now and it’s just so nice to have that natural light.
Obviously this is all a work in progress! I will continue to share our progress with this project as we move along. We won’t be painting the door until the spring because it’s too cold for the paint to stick correctly at this point. The door is fiberglass so there’s no harm in not painting it, which is nice!
Our door is from ENER-G Tech. The installation and trim work was done by our contractor.
This was one of the first projects we had completed when we moved into our home and we are so excited to finally share it with you! Read on for lots of before and afters!Read More
