Next Weeks’ Challenge….”Outdoor Decor”

 What a fun week this has been at The CSI Project! With over 130 projects linked up so far, the inspiration is never ending. We’ve really enjoyed seeing all of your creative ideas and love for our great country! Thanks to everyone who took the time to participate and link up their wonderful projects. While Lindsey is going through all the entries and choosing her favorites, I want to share  our theme for next week….

Outdoor Decor”

 This is definitely something I struggle with, so I’m excited to see all of your ideas that I can shamelessly copy and use at my house!



 Recently, I did a little mini makeover on my front entry. With the simple addition of  some lush flower baskets, a freshly painted door, and some vinyl lettering…..the space is transformed. Now if I could only convince the hubby to paint the brick, we’d really be in business!This space so not perfect, but I LOVE the difference it makes. Maybe if I hadn’t decided to paint at 9pm in the dark, I would’ve gotten better results. A lesson in patience would serve me well! Live and learn, huh?



 This is the door before, in red. Not so bad, just not the pop I wanted. I cannot wait to see how amazing my fun halloween decor will look against the black door. Have I mentioned how in love I am with my new black door???



Please come back next Tuesday and link up your “outdoor decor” projects. We’re really looking forward to it!


Don’t forget to check back tomorrow when we will announce the winners of this week’s challenge and the lucky winner of the Pleated Poppy $25 gift certificate. Thanks again for participating and….. good luck!

    Thank you so much brittany! i appreciate it very much!

  2. Love your planters. I think I need to find some for my door!
    Bexay6211 – on Tuesdays (usually by 9am) you will see a new post and directions for linking are at the bottom of the post. It is pretty easy (as long as you have your project in a blog post of your own. Best of luck ;-).

    I have a question if anyone can help… how do you join the linky parties? I just started (trying) to keep track of all my projects and i’d love to join in the fun but i have no idea!

  4. My front door is in dire need of a makeover! You might very well have inspired me to give it some TLC. 🙂

    That vinyl is just the right touch.

  6. I love the pumpkins! What a great idea.

  7. I love the Welcome vinyl. It’s amazing what a little paint and plants can do for an outdoor space. 🙂

  8. I love the new look! I have been wanting to paint my front door as well.
