Lavender lining the path to your front door? Wondering about how to pull together the rest of the look for Modern Country spectularnessicity 🤔🤗😚? .
Worry no more, my sweets. Click over (link in bio) to get the look, the inspiration and the love 😍❤️🌈❤️
If there's one Modern Country look that never seems to date, never seems tired, never gets old, it's this: banks of lavender leading up to a gorgeously muted front door (image source unknown).🌿🚪🌸❤️
.
Can you tell that I'm VERY much looking forward to some better weather?!!! What's with this rain? It was like God turned on the shower!! Though there was a beautiful rainbow 🌈 which always makes me smile deep in my heart.
.
For LOTS more lavender front door love, my sweets, see latest blog post on Modern Country Style (link in bio). 😘😘😍

What a lovely feeling it is when you get to tick off your ticklist 🤗😆. Appointments booked ✔️, household items ordered ✔️ (eek! 😍), meetings planned ✔️...
.
Of course, we all know there'll be a whole new list tomorrow 📝⏰ but let's not talk about that now...? 🤣😎
.
What about you, my gorgeousses, are you a ticklist kind of person? Or do you prefer to roll with what life throws you? 😅🎁💝

Several of you gorgeous Instalovelies 💗💗 have asked me for more details on making new pine doors look old... ⏳⌛💥
.
Here's a quick tutorial:
.
First, you need to buy your doors. You'll get the most authentic finish if you pick doors that are built in a traditional way. 🛒🚪
.
Next rub your door all over with a caustic soda solution. This will raise the grain of the wood, giving it that aged textured look you're after. Don't be afraid of being rough. The odd ding will only add to the aged feel. ⚒️🔨😌
.
Once the door is dry, give it a coat of Antique Pine Wax. 🖌️
.
Choose simple, timeless doorknobs and Bob's your uncle!!! A magically aged door!!! 😍😍😘 Enjoy and feel smug forever after 💗💗💗.

Just looking back at a moodboard I put together for a client whose outside space 🌼💮🌸 I designed quite a few years back...and then I realised that this scheme still works perfectly now. It hasn't dated one jot!
.
I love Modern Country Style 💗💗💗. I've loved it for years and years...You only have to look way back at my Modern Country Style blog to see how well it blossoms over passing time.
