The kick plate was so easy. I held it up to the door, centered it and used 2 pieces of painters tape to hold it in place while I drilled holes and screwed it in. After that was done I took out some leftover door stain and touched up some scratches on the door.
This is how it looked last week after I cleaned off the porch.
Now it has a door knocker and kick plate. We stopped at Home Depot to get the kick plate yesterday. My 9 year old asked me if that meant he could just kick the door when ever he wanted to now. I hope he was just joking when he asked me that!!
The dressed up door:
I'm not sure if I ever included a close up of Mr. Rooster. I love him!
I found him at the Tractor Supply store.
The porch and front door have come along way since we moved in! Hubby did the new door, siding, roof and windows between 2004 to 2006.
