This weekend I decided to update my family’s uninviting front door and steps! Using items we had from around the house, in the yard, and at Wallums.com this DIY project literally took me all of 20 minutes to complete, and the transformation is still impressive!
My first eye grabbing item chosen for this project was the 4″ Hello Door Decal from Wallums Wall Decor for $9.99, and I decided on the color White to make it stand out from the street. To get the door ready for installation, I wiped the area off with a damp towel to remove any dust and cob webs, and waited for it to dry completely before applying the decal.
After removing the design from the backing paper and placing it against the door, I applied firm pressure with my squeegee provided with each Wallums order, and then again with my fingers to make sure all the letters were free of any air bubbles and evenly adhered to the door.
It’s so easy to get excited and want to ripe off the transfer paper like a band-aid from a boo boo, but it’s important to take your time! If the letters stick to the transfer paper when peeling it back and not to the door (and a few of them did as I went about it), simply lay the paper back down against the door and run the squeegee over again until you get it to stick. I found it best to peel the transfer paper at an angle rather than straight across from right to left.
Hello Door Decal
With this new crisp and white decal, I picked other white and fresh looking items like the flowers and water kettle.
And there you have it! An old door and lonely steps get a new face lift for under $10 and 20 minutes!
