    I just had a thought, and I'm sure I'm not the first one to have it, but to use a magnetic curtain rod to hang wallhangings on your outside door for the different seasons. It would be fun to make a few, and change them up. Or even to just hang your wreath from it. No screw holes, and you can get rid of it when no longer needed. I guess I got up too early. LOL

    I have a quilted curtain on my front door using the magnetic rod...works great! I like the idea of putting a wreath up using the rod.

    Maybe you think best when you get up too early! That's a great idea, thank you.

    I use a magnetic rod to hang a welcome quilt on the inside of the door. The neighbor dog would get it on the outside.

    I have an over-sized OLD wooden front door on my 200 year old cottage. It's cold in here in the fall/winter months!!
    This year I'm going to put up a regular curtain rod and hang a nearly full-sized quilt on the back of the door for insulation and to brighten my small dark living room. Don't know why I didn't think of it before!

    You know...that would also be a good idea for my sliding glass door...just on one side so not to block the door.

    Thanks for all the ideas rolling around in my head! HI have a huge opening between LR and DR, been wishing for doors but love the idea of old fashioned tapestry style quilted drapes to keep in the fireplace heat... :thumbup:
