As the hot summer slowly fades it will be none to soon.......
Show Me Fall Colors and Cooler weather!
How do you create a Welcoming doorway no matter what the season?
Step 1: CLEAN, save the cob webs for Halloween, sweep down the nooks and crannies, wipe off the front door, clean your windows, and don't forget the light fixtures (eeek mine were full of bugs!)
Step 2: Freshen your bench or chair with new pillows ( mine are from @Bhg @Walmart) my bench takes 3 chair seats and I added fun throw pillows, all made for the outdoors) The summer ones are bagged @spacebag and stored in the attic til spring.

Step 3: Change out your dated light fixtures (@Lowes, for less than $150 for 2 we updated the wall sconces from faded brass to a rusted iron)
Step 4: Repaint the front door or touch up the scratches and scrapes, polish your doorknobs and kick plate.
Step 5: Add a new Welcome mat! (or at least hose off the old one)
Step 6: Decorate for the Season! Add a wreath on the front door or side wall, bows and greenery attached to the light sconces, a festive yard stake to potted plants and a fabulous Lisa Frost fall banner!
Step 7: Stand back and enjoy! (or check out your neighbors and help her out)
Everyone has a doorway but not everyone's says" Welcome!"
