The front door is like the eye of the house, and we finally made some small updates to ours—and to our little front stoop—this week.
The columns are still thinner than I would have liked, but apparently with the whole structure, our carpenter couldn’t make them much wider than he did. The diagonal beams help with visual interest, though, I think.
Small adaptations need to be made to clean everything up (trim is a little janky in some places), but I’m pleased.
Up next: Figuring out what to do with our ugly concrete stoop. I’m open to suggestions! (Stamped concrete is what I’d prefer, but that would apparently require jacking up the whole thing. So I think I may try to refinish and stain it.)
For now, I’m just excited to get the first Christmas wreath we’ve ever had for our new cottage-y door.
