Paint It Black

I really want to paint all of our interior doors black.  Wouldn't that be fabulous?! 

Not convinced?  Here are some of the things that convinced me.  I'm pretty sure you'll agree that it's the right thing to do! I submit for your consideration...

Carmel's front door on Our Fifth House.  It's so dramatic and gorgeous!
Check out Jennifer's doors at Dimples and Tangles.  Her hallway paint is a similar color to ours, and the black door looks great.  Further proof....
And this inspiration from Soul Style
I especially love Emily's black doors at A Well Dressed Home because she started with flat doors and added molding to bring in some architectural interest. We would need to do that as well, since our interior doors are flat and boring. Hers turned out beautifully!

I'm guessing that most of you have seen the light and agree that painting our doors black would be amazing.  Now could someone convince my husband??


  1. I would have never thought of that, but I love it! Do you have a lot of doors?

    1. We have about ten, so it would definitely be a big job. Not to mention that my husband already painted them once. They were stained wood when we bought the house and we painted them white.
