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!

Today I present to you our new Thursday Feature: DIY Thursday. Each week I’ll round up fun, inspirational DIY projects to get your creative juices moving and you excited for the weekend.
Seems like these days there’s an Ikea everywhere, but, thankfully, there’s also Ikea Hackers. Browsing around this week, I saw this great project to spice up your walls by creating backlit wall frames.
If that’s a little too involved for you— or your walls are blank and you don’t have any picture frames (backlit or otherwise!)— you could take a page out of designer Guilherme Torres’ book. He added unique arcade wall graphics to his white walls. If you want to get the same look, you can get your own space invaders wall decals.
Or perhaps you’re looking for something a little more girly? Or, as Fall starts, you’re still not ready to say goodbye to gardening and flowers? If that’s the case here are some pretty purple tulips!
