I have been wanting to paint my front door black forever. All these images I saved were my inspiration for my latest nap time project.
Black interior door are perfection, right?? In keeping with my New Years Goals to accomplish a house project every month, I tackled this one last week. It was a super quick project. Many of the sites I read said to prime the door first but I skipped that step (call me lazy) and honestly it turned out just fine. I don’t think it made a difference at all. I used Sherwin Williams High Gloss Black and it took me three coats of paint. It is important to let each layer dry before you apply the next layer or you will have streak marks. The paint dried pretty fast, I think I waited about an hour between each coat. I could not be more pleased with the results!
The high gloss black made a world of difference!
Here is a view of the before and after:
(side note the trim around the door needs to be repainted white- hence why it looks dingy)
Next up I want a fancy brass animal door knocker for the front of the door. I love Nancy’s from Marcus Design.
I am also thinking about painting our bathroom cabinets high gloss black. I just repainted the walls yesterday and I think high gloss black would look amazing with the new wall color. What is everyone’s thoughts on black bathroom cabinets?? My mom was not completely sold on the idea but I still am digging it. This image I found on Pinterst is what inspired me. I love the black paint and sleek hardware.
And here is our bathroom. Thoughts on the black paint? My only worry is I might get tired of it. My other option is a fresh coat of high gloss white and of course new knobs and pulls. And a new shower curtain, I am so over the giant monogram. It was a wedding gift so it is a good 5 years old, time for something new!
