Painting Interior Doors – Thinking Outside the Trim Color

| | |

Doors are taking on a life of their own now-a-days! The basic white paint and trim is being replaced by vibrant brights and deep moody hues. Time to think about adding a new layer of color to your home’s design!

 

Hey Hey!

Today is full – it is a true Tuesday. Our flooring will be coming sooner than we expected, like next week sooner. I am boxing up books and treasures like a mad woman. Everything has to be moved out. I am focusing on the good and trying not to get overwhelmed. I am imagining how very lovely everything will be when we are finished and not on the fact this all started because a tiny little leak.

As I imagine how much I will love the outcome of this big project, I got to thinking about my interior doors and how maybe now is the time to change things up a bit (more). Why not? Right?!?

I love seeing the unexpected bold hues on interior doors as much as I swoon for the moody dark painted ones.  I have been pondering this idea for a while and with daily life being what it is, our pristine semi gloss antique white doors have taken one for the team.  I have scrubbed and cleaned to no avail, my doors still look “eh”.  Take a look at these…

With all the painting going on here- why not add a few doors? Here is what I am thinking…

What about you? Do you like the idea? Do you hate the idea? Do you care?  ðŸ˜‰

Maybe you’ve taken the plunge – are you happy with it? Please share in the comments. Would love to hear from you!

I better get back to packing.

Till Later,

    1. I agree with you! Life it too short to have boring doors – loved your post and the bedroom color as well. 🙂

  1. I love painted interior doors as well! I say go with whatever color you like best. I’ve only done cream thus far for bedroom/closet doors but a fun colored door for some random room (say pantry or powder room) would be fun. Visiting from Blogtalk.

  2. I love every single idea you posted. I love design that adds a little drama with something out of the norm, I think they look great!

  3. I vote for painting the doors! (You can always paint them over again if you don’t like it, right?) We recently painted our home’s entryway white with black trim. I painted the interior sides of the front doors, the hall closet doors and office doors black. My husband was worried, but in the end, even he liked it! (whew!)

    Here’s the link to my blog post with the pics: http://allthingsnewagain.net/2015/12/02/from-granny-to-glam-my-entryway-makeover-2/

    Can’t wait to see how your project turns out.
