Backdoor Decor

This blue chair bought at a yard sale has been in my attic for several years. I wanted something different at my backdoor (which is our main entrance) so I got it down, painted it red, and now it holds a watering can with some flowers in it. It looks pretty cute if I do say so myself. I also leaned an old shutter behind it that I painted apple green. I am enjoying seeing it when I walk in and out the door. I love when I can change an area and just use things I already have! Don't you?! Hope you have a great day!

What a happy little entrance!! I love it when you can give something a coat of paint -it changes the whole look.

Very cute--painting that chair red made a huge difference. Red is like that!

Your apple-green shutter looks strangely familiar. I have two in my garage waiting to be used outdoors!

That's your BACK door? It's so pretty and great looking. The chair is a nice touch there and I love the shutter. I love a covered entry, whether its the front or back door. I guess that will be my next house.

I like it blue and I like it red. Two of my favorite colors. But the red really pops next to your red door...really inviting. I have an old chair that I want to paint but have never tried it. You are inspiring me.

Oh! I love it! That is such a sweet display. I am often at a loss for my front door display because I don't want to do the exact same thing everyone else has. I love this -- it is so personal and unique!
