Painting the Inside of My Front Door BLACK!!!

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.

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.
