With the temps dropping and the seasons changing, there is an abundance of advice on how to decorate for fall. Most of it is about decorating your front door or porch. Well people, my front door is under construction, so I will show you how I decorated my back door for fall.
In case you forgot, my front entrance looks like this. It’s not very exciting or decorative yet. I don’t even have a door knob. We have grand plans for the front of our house, but it just isn’t at the top of the list right now, so we use our back door instead.
Then I started pulling out what I had from last year. Remember, thriftiness is always first! I took a basket that I wasn’t using and spray-painted it black. The lantern is from IKEA, and I put it together wrong, opps!
Let me explain. This is my back door, which actually leads into my garage (where we live) and eventually into my laundry room, and so I have a dryer vent right at the top of the door….no plants survive this corner for long. Between the hot air from the vent and the lack of sunshine in this corner, everything eventually rots here. So I make sure before I put it outside it is either OK to throw away later or it has to hold up to the conditions.
So, that is how I decorated my back door, which is kinda my front door, if you know what I mean.
Have you used anything unique to decorate your door this year? Do you decorate your back door too? I would love to hear about it!
