Black & White

Lately, I've been noticing a lot of black interior doors in the blogging world.  Never in a million years did I think I would join this trend, but I have grown to love them!  Not to mention the fact that my white front door was constantly covered with little muddy hand prints!

This is what the front door used to look like:

If you plan on painting your front door, take my advice & buy a paint & primer in one.  I originally just bought black paint, thinking the door had already been painted.  Unfortunately, the paint didn't stick & I had to sand it down & start over.  This time I opted to skip a step & just use the paint with primer in it!  Live & learn, right?

Also, if you are going to do this, make sure to leave plenty of drying time before you need to go somewhere!  I painted the top & the inside (where the latch is) of the door & started freaking out when I realized the paint wasn't drying & it was time to pick up my daughter from school!  Luckily, this happened to be one of the rare times my husband calls at just the right moment to tell me he can pick her up!  Mark saved the day yet again!

Someday I'd like to get a beautiful wooden door with a window in it, but for now, this works for me.  At some point, I'm sure my entry way will be finished.  Next, I'm hoping to find a new rug & some fabric to cover my Craigslist stool with.

So, what color is your front door?

  2. Your door looks great painted black. I also like the mirror beside it. I know what you mean about a wooden door. I've been wanting one forever.
