Black doors

I pinned this a few weeks ago

I have been contemplating jumping on the black door band wagon for a while now. And I decided I do prefer the contrast against the white trim. So I went to Sherwin Williams and decided on the color Urban Bronze.

Which you can see here.

It is not exactly black, which I liked. I thought black was just... umm. Too black?

So I took my doors off the hinges. Primed them. Added some moulding so they were not flat and boring. Painted them. once. twice. Three times.

Then after they dried. hung them back up... I only wanted to do a few doors just to make sure I liked it. Or to see if I liked this moulding. There are a few tutorials out there and I wasn't sure which one I wanted to try.

But at the end of the day. I love them. It looks so much better!

Here is the before...

And here they are today!

I am still waiting on the new door knobs to come in the mail :) I am adding vintage glass knobs to these doors! Cannot wait for this project to be finished!

And do not mind that ugly orange stained banister. That is on my to-do list this year... give that a much needed makeover... :)

So what do you think? Hate the black door trend? or thinking about doing it yourself?


  1. They look great as always. = )

  2. I think the black and the molding both look great!

  3. I absolutely love these doors! The molding makes it look so elegant as well.
