One of the current trends right now which I think is so much fun is painting the inside of your front door. Why does it have to be boring white? Who made that rule any-ways. I have been secretly wanting to paint the door black for quite awhile. When I redecorated the front hallway I thought now is my chance….finally.
So one day, I just made a decision to go bold. Its only paint right? I took out my painters tape, black paint and brush and started to put on coat #1.
The white door was so boring and becoming dated! It (and I) needed the change!
I didn’t take pictures during the process but there’s lots of advise on the internet on which panel of the door to paint first! I like how it turned out but in hindsight, I should have painted the white closet doors black as well since there was too much going on.
I painted the accent wall a metallic paint from Ralph Lauren. I absolutely love how it turned out. I would definitely do it again. Read how I did this here.
So are you going to try this? Do you want some color ideas?
Do you find choosing colors overwhelming? I can help you with that!
I’m Debi Collinson. Designer. Stager. Real Estate Investor. In 2006, I staged my very first home. Staging houses was just starting to become popular. I was very nervous staging my first house, but the sellers liked their newly redesigned home so much that they turned down an offer for full asking price. I went back to design school and have never looked back. Since 2006, I have been staging & styling spaces to make them look like they belong in a magazine page, and buying “fixer uppers” to fix up & either sell for a healthy profit or to rent them out. I just flipped my 9th h “fixer upper” and am looking for my 10th.
