Before and After: Anja's front door

Today's before and after comes from the lovely Anja.  She and her hubby bought this gorgeous old house a few years back and Anja has been painstakingly putting her stamp on it over time.  Her latest project has been transforming the front door.

Here's a view of Anja's home before...

As an artist, Anja is creative AND meticulous.  For her front door makeover, she decided to add some character back into the front by sourcing a vintage door that could be refreshed.  She looked around and scored this solid door with vintage mail blox slot and raised wood detailing at the Old House Revival Company

It wasn't in perfect shape so she took time to clean it up, fix it up and paint it the happiest colour in the spectrum!  She added super modern hardware to give it a unique look.

Here is Anja's amazing front door transformation (with little Luna enjoying her new lounging spot)...

Love it!  You can check out Anja's blog for details on this project and info on her artwork, photography, jewellery and other many talents.

Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Written with love,
