Labeling Doors with Decals
By Stay at Home-ista on Aug 03, 2012
This is what we get for creating a long hallway gallery with a series of doors. No one knows which is which. In this case, they door with the frosted glass inset is the door downstairs, then the coat closet, the french doors lead into my library, and the final door is the pantry.
I can't tell you how many people open the coat closet door to try to get out.
To help alleviate that confusion, I decided to create a graphic of a hanger and put it on the door.
Then for the pantry.
And the powder room since everyone asks where it is.
Then I did it for the mudroom closet.
We also have a problem that when you arrive at our house, it is unclear that the front door is actually up 2 flights of stairs.
See how yucky they are? We promise that stuccoing the exposed concrete (which still has the pencil marks from construction on it) and replacing the handrail with a new one, are on our list.
Not exactly inviting like this lovely black mudroom door that is at entry level.
Same process... Place decal on door.
Peel off and voila! A clearly labeled door.
That makes a lot more sense.
Now I just need to have a sign with an arrow that says "yes, you really do have to go up ALL of those stairs. Unless you are my grandma. Or pregnant. Then I'll let you take the elevator up" But that's a pretty long sign:)
