Doors, Doors, Doors

I am smitten with the pictures of black doors I have been seeing on Pinterest!  I painted our front door black over a year ago (I didn't blog about it but you can see it here) and I love it!  Well, it took me long enough, but I have started painting more.  I worked on 4 doors a couple of weekends ago.  One of the doors my hubby installed new.  There used to be a solid door to the basement, where the two older boys' bedrooms are, but we changed it to a glass panel door.  He had to install the hinges and door knob.  But he's a professional and did an awesome job :)

See how straight and pretty it is?  He primed it and I painted it.

I LOVE the way it turned out!  So classic!  I also painted the door to the powder room, and the doors to the pantry and coat closet, which are side-by-side between the kitchen and dining room~

Each door took two coats.  I used Valspar Satin Interior.  We have brass doorknobs and hinges throughout this house.  They will be staying.  I actually like them with the black.  Brass is coming back in style, ya know.

So I am loving my doors!  I have two more (well three if you count the one leading to the garage) on the first floor to paint.  I have MLK day off tomorrow so I'm going to try to tackle them!  Today is all about grocery shopping and watching the Falcons in the play-off game at 3:00 - RISE UP!!

Love, Kelli
