Wondering about how to restore a door? With mesmerizing beaches and blue-and-white-washed houses packed closely in unique architecture allures everyone.  And, the bougainvillea sprigs and colorful flowers add elegance to the picturesque island. Isn’t it lovely?

Let’s go to Greece!! What a fantastic place to be around?  I would love to explore Santorini Greece some day!! Why would I talk about Santorini, Greece now?

I received messages from friends to share our Christmas crib decorations that we’ve made so far. While searching through the pictures on the laptop, I ended up with this!!

Yeah, we have made our Christmas crib in Santorini-styled houses. It was so much fun and we loved every small detail in it! We made tiny utensils out of clay and miniature fruits out of plaster of Paris, a small fountain and ladders. Coming back, I spent more time restyling our porch for a perfect outdoor space and to bring in positive energy as you enter home.

To add more colors, we have been adding some new flowering plants. I finished with seed sowing and removed all the withered plants. To sit back and relax, we added a vintage settee redesigned out of an old coffee table. And, I gave a makeover to all the old terracotta pots with sparkling colors – DIY Planters. These terracotta pots are almost 10 years old and were given to me by my aunt when she relocated from here. A few are broken due to wear and tear, and others are still intact.

How to restore an old front door:

Today, I’ve restyled our entrance gate with a landscape painting using acrylic colors.

Yeah, I’m left out with an old entrance gate that’s rusted a little in the porch. It was left with primer for months.

Yesterday, I gave it a complete wash with some paint and allowed it to dry for a day to see if there’s any discoloration. And, today I painted the front side with acrylic colors.

First, I stenciled the brick pattern and then used acrylic colors in the dry brushing method for flowers.

This would have been even better with oil paints 0n Canvas, but I love how it has come in acrylic colors.

Sit back, relax and enjoy a cuppa of coffee!!
