Here is an outdoor project to get your house ready for spring, by +Karah Bunde at The Space Between. So pretty!
 
How to Install Glass Door Panels

http://thespacebetweenblog.net/2014/03/18/installing-glass-door-panels/

This is the finished product, but imagine a white front door with plastic in place of the glass and to top it all off the plastic is painted white.  Can't even believe what you're picturing right?!  You have to see the before to truly appreciate the after.

Introduction
Hi I'm Jessica, a worker bee by day and project queen by night.  I live in Upstate New York in an old Colonial home built in 1900 with my husband, Dan. By day I’m a professional in the education field, but by night I’m a knee-pad wearing, drill-wielding, spray painting do-it-yourselfer.

Decor Adventures, my blog and creative outlet, is about creating a beautiful home while having a great time along the way. I share DIY tips, furniture makeovers, home improvement projects and more as I make my 113-year old house a home.

Renovating my house isn't all I do though. Currently I'm a Ph.D. student too. Do I have homework? Of course. Do I sneak away and paint something in the basement or redecorate the mantle while doing homework? More often than I can admit.

For more about me, my home and my blog, read the following:

And now, let's have some fun!

Bragging rights
I know every move to the Thriller dance, have more spray paint than I know what do do with, and have traveled to England, France, Ireland, and Wales.
