The door to our apartment is the featured "weekend question" in the eight-week-cure page of Apartment Therapy. It was elevated from being a mere comment on the previous thread:nyc bloggers map
The metal door of our apartment (click here for picture) will remain a bulletin board/message center, although we'll be weeding out some of the crap on a regular basis. It's also a nifty display for our magnet collection.A couple dozen suggestions followed, most involving some variety of making a frame for the section of the door where we put most of the messages. Then the conversation got around to what to do with that mandatory "Fire Regulation" sticker you're supposed to keep on or near your door:
What I need are suggestions on how to make it look like something other than the door to our apartment with crap stuck all over it.
- Put it in an ornate frame with a ribbon around it;
- Re-contextualize the regulations by typing them up in a great font and making a graphic out of them, and putting them on rice paper; and my favorite,
- "Fire Regulation Cross-Stitch."
