Thinking of Painting Your Interior Doors Black?

This may be the push you need!

When Jennifer, from Dimples and Tangles, emailed me to show off her freshly painted black interior doors my jaw dropped.  They. are. fabulous!  See for yourself!


What a HUGE difference black paint makes!  She started by painting just her front and back doors and the french doors that lead to an office.  

                              

She loved that change so much that she decided to paint all of her doors black.  She gives all the details as well as many more before and after pics on her blog, so be sure to head over and check it out.  

I don't know about you, but this has got me wanting to do the same.  As you know, I've already painted my sliding doors and this made a huge difference in my family room.  Jennifer makes it look like a fairly simple process, so I'm thinking I should give it a go!  

What about you, would you consider painting all of your interior doors black?  or maybe some other color?  

Have a great 3-day weekend!

  3. Oh, thank you so much, Carmel! Seeing your sliding doors finished gave me the push I needed to complete what I had started over a year ago. Your home has been such an inspiration to me! Have a great weekend!

  4. OMG they are gorgeous!!! I would love to do this, but I don't think I have the right house for it, but I wish I did. Our hallway is too thin and no light, so I don't think it would look this good. ;) Thanks for sharing so I can drool over someone else's gorgeous home. :)

  9. Wow, her entryway and doors are beautiful! I was one of the many who voted for you to paint your new sliding doors black. Now I am thinking, thinking, thinking about my own home. Linda S. in NE

  11. is there anything else in the house that needs to be black to go with it? would just painting the doors look like a black hole if one does not paint other things??

  12. Carmel,

    This is exactly what I have been thinking about. All of my doors are dark stained wood.....but I was thinking that they might be great black!

    Thanks for the inspiration.

    Have a great weekend rock star.

  13. Thanks for the visual. I have been wanting to paint the inside of my doors black but feared the white trim would look out of place. Added benefit is the garage door won't look like a very dirty gas station restroom door. Honesty I love my handy husband but.... Wash your hands or only touch the door knob!
