The other day when I looked at my powder room door and so how gross, dirty and blah it looked, I grabbed my paint brush, some black ACE Cabinet, Door & Trim paint and decided I’d had enough. I already have a few black doors in our home, the french doors and also the insides of our exterior doors are black.
There are only two doors on the main floor besides the french doors so the pantry door now has black paint on it as well. I’m not completely sold on the pantry door but it works for now and ties in the chalkboard backsplash.
I was a little worried the chalkboard wall might be too much black with the pantry door but I think it’s ok.
Here you can see the black doors all tied together. This is when I like my pantry door black, consistency, flow, oneness.
This shot ties in the french doors from the dining room with the pantry and the powder room door.
Here’s when we first moved in just to give you an idea of how far the kitchen and also my photography skills have come in almost two years:
The bathroom door is perfect in the hall, I was worried it might be too dark but it works and makes the zebra walls look lovely.
Then while taking photos, I was bombed by my hubby on his way up to shower on his lunch break. I told him it was going on the blog, him unshowered and in his glory, so here it is honey.
Have I ever told you how much I love this view? It makes me happy, every. single. time. LOVE my chalkboard back splash!
Let’s see a before just to remind us how far it’s come. This is when we were first looking at the house, one of the only pictures I have from this view before I changed the trim and added our coat shelf.
Then we added white trim, the coat shelf and the white door for the powder room.
And here we are today, gray owl on the walls, painted cabinets and now a black powder room door.
So there you have it, a few hours on Sunday and I totally changed the look of my home for free! Do you have black doors in your home? Would you ever try it?
