Black Interior Doors PR 4

25 April 2011

I did this a month or so ago, and we LOVE it!  I told you back in ancient history how we had a plan to paint all the interior doors black (it all started with the front door).  I bought the gallon of paint and... moved on to other things like I am good at! Ha!

Well then, when I was bored one day, I had an easy ready to go project.  We have a bunch more doors to paint another day too, lucky me!  Projects galore!

It is amazing what this project has done for our cheap ugly doors.  Just your plain flat doors, with a big hideous faux wood grain (a very unfortunate feature...)  But the truth is they look absolutely beautiful now.  I just can't tell you enough how much I love the look.  I am not sure that I will ever paint my doors the same color as the trim again.

And so here is the little hall in our upstairs before and after.



I think black paint is addicting... beware!

I agree! We are slowly painting all of our doors and trim black. It is one of the few decorating choices that my husband and I agree on.I love it!

Ahh man, we already painted all of our trim gloss white and the doors don't match. so were off to painting white since we aren't planning to stay at this house for eternity. I <3 the black, big time!

When I read the title, I thought, "Black painted doors? No, that's too odd". But I am amazed at how good they look, it looks really stylish and gives the hallway some depth. I am suddenly inspired...Thanks!

They look fabulous! I did this as well and I love it. It makes cheap doors look expensive and gives your home such a sense of drama.

I am planning to do the same thing, after going to a Home & Garden Tour last week. My fav house had all black doors, and it was very rich looking. Love yours!

That's so funny, I just did that this weekend at my house! And I also love it!!!
Check it out!
Isn't it funny how something so simple can make something look so much better, My garage entry went from crap to freakin' awesome!

Ohhh...I have been wanting to do this FOREVER but am too sceered! I LOVE it! I'm going to do the back of our front door to ease me into it. ;)

The effect is very dramatic, I think it look great, but not sure I am brave enough to change my doors black yet!!!!

Such a wonderful idea, I want to do it to our horrible, faux wood grained doors right now! Thanks for the inspiration

I love it! We spray painted a few interior doors with mixed results. The celery green color looks great on teh pre primed door but the navy blue looks splotchy on the older door and the khaki looks blech. I am thinking I wanna try black thanks to you (I am *sure* the husband will be thanking you, too *grin*)
