{Red door}

Our new front was finally installed last Wednesday.

I can’t begin to tell you how pleased I am.

Inside the door is white. I like the fact that the handle matches the mail box lid. I thought they both would be white. We have 70’s paneling in our hallway. We had the parts beside the door removed as the molding around the door wouldn’t fit.
H. will redo the wallpaper.
Beneath the paneling was 50’s feature. In Dutch is called beton emaille. It is glossy paint over concrete. In this case the concrete was made with lumps and bumps.

Ofcause the door will be adorned with a wreath, but first I want to enjoy it “pure”

You can find a before photo here.

Now I want the hallway redone (ofcause). I think we will leave the rest of the paneling (in the staircase and behind the coat rack) and have it painted and have new carpeting on the stairs an floor. Next spring!

Have a nice weekend!

  2. Hoi Marianne,

    Mooie deur, zal wel een hele zware zijn. Nu kun je er weer jaren tegen.

    Ik denk dat die van ons van hetzelfde soort is.Ik ben er ook zo blij mee.

    Fijn weekend, groetjes Thea

  3. Wat een prachtige deur!!
    dat glas in lood is mooi hoor!
    Fijn weekend

  4. I love your red door! So welcoming. We'll be having a new door (and windows soon) but red wouldn't be in keeping with the style of our house unfortunately - so it will be white like our wooden one!

    I LOVE RED!!!

  5. Very nice! Love the bright bold color and the details on the door itself.
