Door Bucket Love...and a Giveaway!

One of the easiest ways to brighten up for spring is on the front door. Your front door sets the tone for welcoming friends and family into your home. Make it beautiful, welcoming, and friendly! Door buckets are a wonderful vehicle for changing the look of your front porch or stoop on a dime, and offer more flexibility than a traditional wreath. My all time favorite is my Willow House Flower Market Door Bucket, one of the first products I received when I became a Southern Living at HOME consultant. This piece is so hard-working! She’s been indoors and out, front door, back door, held fresh flowers and faux.

While seasonal door buckets are fun, I highly recommend going with one that can go from season to season simply by changing the filler. Choose a great finish that will complement any door color. And make sure it’s well-constructed if you intend to leave it outside for extended periods of time. Check your favorite home sites and stores for good deals. I use inexpensive door buckets in the garage to contain sunscreen, bug spray, dog leashes, etc. All the ugly stuff you need handy, but don’t want to look at!

A great look for fall…

And here she is for spring…

Door buckets make wonderful gifts, too!  Pop over to Houzz to view my Front Door Decor ideabook [again, only the tip of the iceberg!] and then come on back...
