More Black Doors

Lawd it has taken me forever to get some things done around here. I started painting the doors on the first floor black way back here - over a year ago - then kind of ran out steam/gumption/desire whatever you want to call it.. But now I have managed to paint two more doors! "Yay!" she said so proudly.

The door leading to the garage (even though I have not tackled the other side - it has been too cold!!):  And I ALWAYS forget to take a "before" picture so I stop and take one after I started.. it's a blurry phone pic too. #bloggerfail #lol

Here you can see all three - the other two are pantry and coat closet in the short hall that leads to the dining room. We have a long row of hooks for extra coat/jacket/purse/lunch bag/dog leash storage on the opposite wall.

And the back door going out to the deck: again, forgot to take a picture so i found another pic i took when my husband was out on the deck grilling...and it's grainy too...

I have just one door on the first floor left to paint, and it's kind of a weird one. It's the door to the office and it's an exterior door, so the grids are inside the glass and there's no way I can paint them.

I'm wondering if I should paint it at all - ?? Will there be too much black since it's next to the front door?  Would it be weird to have one door not painted?  What do you think?

Thanks for stopping by :)

Linking up with "That DIY Party!"   and Twirl and Take a Bow!


  1. I'm liking the look of your black doors. Adds some extra zing. And I too am so bad about before pictures. When I recently took over our former guest room to use as my sewing room, I started moving out some of the furniture and other items I didn't want in there. Then I realized someday I may have an "after" that I'd want to share, so I moved a big recliner and some other items back in the room for a "before" photo. Lame!

  2. What is it about black? I just painted a mantelpiece in my dining room black and love it. Your doors look fabulous! Would love for you to share at Fridays Unfolded!
