Every Birdie’s Welcome!

One things for sure, I love doors! Especially ones with old chippy paint. Polohouse for favorites on the first is featuring front door décor.

I was excited for this fun party and thought I would show some of my door décor.

I love placing an old door on my front porch.  Wonder if anyone is ever not sure which door to enter? lol!  For this door I lined a cute metal green planter with moss and filled it with fern and begonias. This pic was taken when I first planted it.  By the end of summer it was so full I loved it.

This door is just inside my entry.  Here hangs a swag with one of the paper birdhouses I made.

For a while I hung this square moss wreath from my front door.

The found nest had a perfect hole for tying it to the wreath.  I filled it with some faux eggs.

Because we used the crackly door that was on my front porch for a shelf in the living room this door now resides in it’s place.  I had so much going on out there I felt that a simple Forsythia wreath is all it needed.

I hung this umbrella on my porch for April showers.  It’s now May, think I see a change coming.

I dyed the eggs with Rit dye so they would be the color of robins eggs.  I am not lucky enough to have chickens.  I have seen some beautiful blue and green eggs that some hens lay.

April showers certainly is bringing May flowers!

There you have it, a bit of my door décor.

I would like to leave you with a picture of this door that I fell in love with at the St. George Home Shows.  I would love my door to be this color!

This door is so simple, but I love it!

You do have some great looking doors! I noticed the one just inside your entryway in one of your recent posts & I love it immediately!

Well, just open the door and come on in! But which door? They are all so pretty! Whoever loves these doors must welcome visitors! That is what I would think if I saw all your doors. I really have to say again that I love the door turned into a shelf. I think that a door says many things. I like to change my door decorations up from time to time. But I sure don't have a collection of doors. Although, my house does have an unusually high amount of doors to enter into from the outside. We have 4 all together, and it is not a very large house. Maybe I am thinking of if backwards, and they are just escape routes from the crazy people who live inside of them? I do agree that the simplicity of that big yellow ribbon hanging the simple green wreath on that cool grey door is very pretty!
Blessings,
Susie

Jann, Love the doors! I've picked up a few in the trash and love the old chippy paint on them. I love your square moss wreath and nest, a great look. Thanks for stopping by and if I was a fairy godmother, I'd give everyone a little cottage near a lake. Thanks for sharing, Laura

Maria Elena said...

Beautiful ideas! I just love the doors!

Lauren @ My Wonderfully Made said...

I love your doors! The one on the front porch is beautiful and I really am in love with that yellow chair. It's all so inviting looking. And that narrow door inside -- well that is to die for! I am heading to a large flea market this weekend, note to self: Add "old doors" to the list of things you're looking for!

Alison @ The Polohouse said...

Hi Jann!
You have so many pretty things to comment on! Where do I even begin? :)

I love the umbrella arrangement with the eggs you dyed. THAT is just too darn sweet.

Your chippy doors are so great for that layering and collected look that I love so much!

I love sitting on those metal vintage lawn chairs too. They are so comfortable and they are good for rocking too~

Thanks so much for linking up today and sharing!

Jann, couldn't you collect something smaller and easier to move around? Ha ha. I can see why you like your doors though. They have character and you've decorated them in such pretty ways. I like the red door but I think my favorite is the stained one. Thank you for linking up to my party.----Shannon

Gail said...

OMGoodness I love your doors especially the old chippy ones! I'm also in love with your vintage metal chairs. I have two and they are the most comfortable chairs we have outside. Thanks for the inspiration and enjoy your day, Gail
