Pantry Door

Thank you so much to all of y'all who have stopped by, and especially to those of you who have left comments. I truly appreciate your support in this new endeavor!

It sounds as though everyone is interested in hearing about our master bedroom so I will plan to photograph that this evening. (Hopefully there aren't too many toys, books, water bottles, etc scattered about the room!) About a year ago my husband and I began to weigh our options and started looking into selling our townhome and purchasing a single family home. Long story short, it didn't work out. Instead, we decided to put more work into our home and to truly make it a place that we love. And the bedroom is the first room we tackled! So it is fitting for it to be the first room I present here on my blog. I will post all of the pics along with a break down of where we purchased all of the items.

In the meantime, I thought I'd share one of my favorite decor spots from the past few months--the pantry door in the kitchen.

The breakdown:
I purchased it at the post-Thanksgiving sale at Target for around $5. It is very neutral with creams, greens and browns. I hung it with a wide satin ribbon from my ribbon stash.
We gave the door a fresh coat of white paint and changed out the doorknob from an outdated, badly scratched brass knob to an oil rubbed bronze knob that we purchased at Home Depot. If I remember correctly, the new hardware ran around $25-$30.
The decal says "KITCHEN the heart of the home". I ordered it from Wonderfully Wordy. Shelley is super sweet and very easy to work with. I believe the decal was $15 and it was very easy to apply to the door.

So there you have it! An easy do-over on what was otherwise an overlooked door in our home.

I love those vinyl decals. I get mine from uppercase living. I'll have to post a picture of the one I got for the boys room. I designed it myself and it's my favorite!
