Finally! We can join our elite neighbors with membership in the exclusive Houses-With-Bright-Doors-And-Funny-Shaped-Windows club. You probably read about it in the national papers, but allow me to confirm that we finally finished our front door transformation.

We have Crestview Doors to thank for the finished product. The Austin-based company sells both the oddly shaped windows and charismatic midcentury style doors as a whole, but trendy DIY-ers (and cheapskates) we are, we opted to try our hand at installing the windows on our own in the existing door rather than going the route of a whole new threshold. Heath spent a morning putting in the new doorlite kit and it makes me feel pretty giddy about our newly configured front door. I’m thrilled to be falling in line with the rest of our spiffy neighbors.
