Let’s talk about how easy it is to add something pretty and fresh to our front doors!
So fun, right?
WHAT IS A FRONT DOOR DECAL?
A decal is a special design on vinyl that transfers to another surface like glass, wood, metal, or even your front door!
There are all types of front door decals! Most decals can be customized for your door and your style! You can choose different sayings, fonts, sizes, and colors! Truly customized! I could get a little crazy with these decals!
Here are just a few I think are so attractive…
HOW TO ADD A DECAL TO THE FRONT DOOR
Most decals come with full instructions and I suggest you follow them. But I thought you would like to see just how easy it is to add one to the front door!
Here’s our front door without any embellishments. Oh, okay, we did add a nickel finish kick plate. Bobby loves kick plates. And a nickel wreath hanger. But that’s all!
The first thing we did was wash our front door with an all-purpose cleaner.
My husband Bobby was my lovely assistant for the photoshoot! This is really a one person job, but I took pictures and Bobby “posed” for them!
We let the door completely dry.
Then we measured the area we wanted to place the decal to center the wording.
We stripped the backing off the decal. It is very sticky at this point.
And gently positioned the backing on the door centering the word “hello” where we wanted it.
In the spirit of full disclosure, even though we measured and carefully laid down the decal it ended up being a bit out of alignment. UGH! We came to find out that it’s very hard to unstick the backing so we decided to just “go for it”. I can’t tell you how many projects we do around our home that include the words “just go for it”!
Just goes to show you that things can go wrong no matter how careful you are! But it’s not the end of the word! We were excited to see if the wording looked okay or not!
So I rubbed a credit card over the writing…vigorously and carefully!
And then we gently peeled the paper off the wording. Very gently!
The wording stuck to the door perfectly!!! Yay!!!
And the little alignment issue was not an issue at all!
Adding a front door decal was so easy and it makes such a pretty, unexpected welcome to everyone who comes to our front door!
A big thank you to my wonderful Bobby! My lovely assistant and partner in all things home and in life!
Just think how pretty a decal will look on your front door!
