Adding Detail

It's all about the detail ... at least that's what I think. When we purchased our house 2.5 years ago, the biggest selling feature for me was all the detail. Although a fairly new home, the previous owners had taken the time to add beautiful thick crown moulding and extra large baseboards. There was also gorgeous detailed trim work around all the interior doors and an extraordinary fireplace mantel.

Here's my own small detail - corner brackets for the front entrance. These were purchased very inexpensively from Lowe's.

After much debate between Hubs and myself, I decided on a less ornate, simple profile. (Not the norm for me, I'm usually OVER-THE-TOP)

Out to the garage for painting.

Some liquid nails (I LOVE this product)!!!

And the results - a small, fresh detail which simply adds more character to my space.

It's the personal touches that truly make a house into a home.

Cheers - Lisa

  1. I'm in total agreement - it is the little things that make all the difference. And what fun would it be to have a home and not be able to make it uniquely your own? Your personal touch in the front entrance was perfect!
