Black Doors

2.28.2011

One of the projects I've been wanting to do for awhile is paint the inside of our front door black. The outside is black, but I'm looking for some more drama in the foyer, and right now the white front door just blends in with all trim and transom windows, instead of being an architectural feature.

Of course, I went to the Benjamin Moore store near us the other day to get the paint, and the guys there (super nice) recommended I wait until the weather is a bit warmer to tackle this project. Humph. And I was actually going to try and get something accomplished. Darn it. I'm so impatient, I just want the door black now! Until then, here's some inspiration pics to hold me over.

Do any of you have black interior doors? Or any other color than white? Anyone itching to get started on a project but waiting until the weather warms up?

  1. OMG this is my exact next project! When it warms up of course. But all we really need is one 50 degree day. That'd do it. I have two interior doors (of exteriors, like yours) I want to paint black. It's going to be so dramatic and lovely. Can't wait to get it done--and see yours too!

  2. When we bought our new front door last fall, I didn't consider anything but white for the interior (the exterior is black), but these look awesome! So much more 'finished'! My husband will throw a fit if I add something else to the list...

  3. I never thought about this but perhaps I shall. We're going to paint the exterior of our front door black this spring (had the whole exterior re-done in the fall, last thing is the darn door!)

    We just got a new front door installed and I can't wait for the spring so I can actually paint it. My 'green door home' is currently white :-( boooring
