I have had a which-door-is-the-front-door? problem ever since I moved into my cottage, because both my front door and my laundry room door are on the front. To add to the (apparent) confusion, the laundry room door is closest to the driveway.
(I never thought it looked confusing, but sure enough, very nearly every single friend, family member, and delivery or contractor dude, was either perplexed, or never noticed the "real" front door.)
Once we got the current phase of landscaping completed, and the arborvitae were planted around the laundry room stoop, the actual front door began to feel more prominent. To add to this, I decided I would keep the front gate propped open, using a couple of flower filled terracotta pots. I then decided to reinvent an old thrifted sign I have had stashed in my garage for at least three years.
I used the dark grey (It is named Peppercorn) detail trim paint to cover the original sign and then transferred my printed words to the sign by coloring the back of the paper with colored chalk, and then, using an old dried up sharpie marker, outlined the words to transfer them on to the sign. I painted the letters in, and once it was dry, I wiped off any excess chalk still on the sign, and it was all set to be hung on the gate.
It was exactly the detail I was going for....a little touch to set the tone for all who come through the gate to visit.
