About Me

My Photo
God does have a sense of humor, after years of infertility, we adopted 2 beautiful babies, I later had the "surprise baby"! In the very spare time I have, I love to decorate, paint, and make all kinds of things. I do repurpose old furniture and custom paint furniture for clients. I work with all types of vintage items. I love to make our house a home. I like to see how others do it and share what I do also. Contact me at alittlecountryhouse@gmail.com if you are interested in any products I have posted or if you are local to Atlanta and want a furniture face lift! Love your old junk again!

Shut the front door.....

              Our front door has seen better days. It has been quite shabby lately, I want to paint it, hubby says No, he doesn't want to paint it. I'm still going to work on him....In the meantime, I put a fresh coat of stain, just to make it somewhat better until we decide. I would actually love to paint it red, cause our house is white with black shutters. I think the red is just classic with that combo..... We will see! Here is our door a little cleaned up for spring! I do tell the kids to shut the front door, constantly!! 5 kids, 2 dogs, in and out!!! To get in the mood for spring, I had these tulips hanging in the kitchen and decided to move them to the door and add some burlap...they are old, so this is a recycle too! Even better! Enjoy!





Lol!! This is so not my front door, nor my glamorous dog, but this is pretty great
Love the pop of red!!

another great, inspiring red door!! this does help me
visualize.....



 My door......Note the muddy mat... and the very tarnished kick plate
...keepin it real people...
I'm gonna add something to the planters, don't know yet....


this beloved old woman likes to park it, on the muddy mat, at the front door....
Let me tell you about this dog for a minute, She was my baby, when I couldn't have a baby...
She is a big, hairy, smelly, mixed breed, but, she has been the nicest dog, anyone could ever
have.....She has been so sweet and patient with my kids. Just a calm, easy, loving animal. She
turned 13 in January......
I will be in the fetal position when she passes on....Ok, enough depression talk...



lil touch of burlap
I used to be a florist...way back in the day....
now I just do stuff for friends and fam....

my fav, tulips!!!

Hello Spring! You are welcome here!!!

I just found your blog, while blog hopping. I think your front door looks marvelous. My front door needs an update too. Hopefully it will continue to warm up her in central PA, so I can paint. I am now a follower.
Nice to meet you,
Chrissy

Found you via Coastal Charm's party -- so nice to meet someone else with 7 in the house and not giving up! :)

I would plant sweet potato vine! It would give you vibrant pop until you paint the door...
