Entry Way Progress-Shut The Dining Room Door!

10 September 2012 16 Comments

Happy Monday!  My weekend was pretty productive.  Of course there are a few items on my to-do list that didn’t get much attention.  The coat rack in the entry way never got touched and we put minimal effort in to the floor.  However, I tackled one item in the entry way that wasn’t even on the list.  Go me right?  I actually just used this project as a tool to aid in my floor procrastination.  Either way, the doors in to the dining room needed to be addressed.  Now they have been.  Take a look at what we started with.  Entry Way Progress 9I mean, it could be worse.  Those are solid wood doors that haven’t been touched with an ounce of stain!  Which made them ideal candidates for a few layers of black paint.  I’ve been seeing black doors throughout the blogsphere for a while now and always thought they looked sophisticated and dramatic.  I figured this was the perfect spot to try it out and see if I like the way it looks in our house.  And boy do I ever!  I’m in L.O.V.E.Entry Way Progress 8I was dealing with pretty bad lighting this morning when I took this picture (sorry, I know it’s not crystal clear) but I think you get the idea.  What are your thoughts on black interior doors?  Love them?  Hate them?  Think I’ve committed a crime by covering up solid wood doors?  Let me have it!diana

    Hey Kate! I did mention something about doing every single door black as I stood back and admired my work last night. Yes. As we replace the doors I think I will paint them black! I’m in love with it!

    Absolutely love. I am all for painting wood. Hand me a paint brush… I am all over it. Black is so mod and looks very chic with with white trim and grey walls.

    I LOVE it!! I think what I like best is that the white trim around it makes the door look dramatic. You should definitely paint them all black.

    NICE! All our trim and doors are black too – and I love it!!

    PS – I couldn’t get onto your blog from work the other day. It blocked me for trying to see a pornographic website. Whaaa?? But then I realized “boy + girl” might sound fishy to a work computer after all. Bahahahah!!! I had to laugh!

  • Girl (author) said:

    Hahahahahaha! That’s hilarious! Yes I can see how it might sound scandalous to a work computer!

    It’s funny, I specifically thought to myself – Amy would approve of black doors!
