When we bought this house, it was April 2020. What ended up being one of the most active hurricane seasons in a very long time. We were in “the cone of uncertainty“ SEVEN times! 🙃 Needless
to say, it rained a lot.
Well...the front doors we thought we might "paint and replace later" were completely rotten with all the moisture. So I went door shopping... and thank goodness I went to The Wood Wright shop in Covington.
I tell you now, I think it was divine intervention that I met Leah and Tom, owners of the Wood Wright Shop. The sweetest husband and wife team.
Leah is quite literally one of the most detail-oriented people I have ever worked with---particularly when it comes to establishing or recreating historic character in a home.
Tom is the creator of these beautiful doors---he can pretty much craft any piece of wood into a masterpiece! Check out their Instagram for some of their recent projects (@thewoodwrightshop)
They honored the character of the home, while flawlessly executing the "French" vision we had for what we knew the home could be... from the arched shutters to the antique hardware on the front doors, they thought of every detail.
I painstakingly painted each one of these shutters in Sherwin Williams, color Delft.
Then I got to the fun part! Choosing front door decor.
We used these planters and these artificial boxwood spiral topiaries.
The front door mat from Frontgate is absolutely amazing. Very thick, well made and HUGE, which is what we needed! I recommend waiting for a sale (like now!) to save $, but this is the only place I am buying door mat’s from now because they last.
We’ve had this doormat for six months and it still has its color (did I mention how much it rains here??)
