We have been toying with ideas on what to do with our front door. We love our front door with all the light it lets in to our house, and the modern black framing around it. What we don't love is that you can see right in our house, you can't ignore or even check who's at your door, and little Lola in all her yorkie dog glory can't resist barking at each and every single thing she sees- EVERY SINGLE THING.
We ar trying to make it work. One idea is to smoke the door and then have a custom gate of sorts made to attach to the front of it for an artistic element. The other idea was presented to me in the form of window films. These are basically heavy duty stickers that go right on the glass to give you both style and privacy.
Here is the door as it stands now:
