What's Inside?

Monogram Valance


The windows at your main entrance shouldn’t be boring. Elevate the look by taking upon a DIY project that will be fun, unique, and innovative at the same time. How many times have you seen a house with monogram window valances?

It will give such a personal touch to your window treatments and keep your creative juices flowing. There are several ways to make the valances stand out. If you’re handy and are skilled in embroidery, you can do your own monogrammed design.

Another way to pull this off is by painting on your valance and even curtains. All you need is a latex color in the shade that you like and a brush.

Vibrant Bench

Get that old bench that you’ve been hiding in your backyard and roll up your sleeves. All you have to do is give it a fresh coat of paint, and it will look as fabulous as possible.

My personal favorite is a vibrant bench that includes several different striking shades. This can be the comfiest part of your main entrance where you can sit and relax. Don’t forget to add pillows to amp up the final appearance even more.

Upgraded Window Decor

Yes, I already mentioned custom valances, but if that’s not something you like, I’ve got another modern window upgrade. Your window coverings and treatments should always be stylish and help your home stand out.

Think of gorgeous drapery rings, brackets and accessories that will add that ‘wow’ moment to the curtains and drapes you already have. For this purpose, you can use old chain necklaces that you’re not wearing anymore or ropes to tie back the drapes and curtains. They will bring an elegant vibe that is relatively cost-efficient.

Unique House Numbers

This is the perfect time to switch things up and create unique house number signs. It can be a piece of wood with metal numbers on it, a metal number sign with an incorporated planter, you can use old tiles and attach numbers to them, and more.

The numbers should be eye-catching and large enough so that everyone can spot them. Pick the colors and shapes that you like, as well as materials that work well together with the rest of the exterior and interior.

Creative Planters

Nothing beats a house with fabulous plants and even more fabulous planters. These days it’s so easy to create your own custom planters that no one else will have.

These planters can feature your most favourite hues, shapes, and details. They will be amazing both outdoors, right next to the door on the stairs, or indoors in the entryway. Arranging them symmetrically gives a sophisticated vibe to the final look.

Custom Doormat

Finish things off with a unique, creative custom doormat.  You can make one from your old rugs or create one from scratch. You will need a basic, blank coir mat, painter’s tape, and paint. With the tape, create the shape that you want, and go ahead and paint it. You can do this with old rugs and mats as well.

These DIY décor ideas for your main entrance will make your home more distinctive and give it a very personal touch. Everyone will want to know the details about your little projects! The most important thing is that you have fun while doing them and give them your own twist.
