We’re on a DIY roll you guys! Maybe it’s the unusually cool August weather here in SoCal that’s got me super motivated, but I’m crossing projects off my To Do list like a frantic homeowner on a 30-minute HGTV makeover show.
Remember the dilemma I had a while back, finding the perfect shade of black for our interior doors?
I’m happy to report Ralph and I are getting along famously. I am totally smitten with his Black Truffle paint. It’s smoky and dark, without that “it looks like it’s midnight, but it’s actually three o’clock in the afternoon” feeling in our tiny hallway. It actually feels brighter to me now, how does that happen!
When I shared I wanted to paint every single one of our interior doors black, there were some folks that were less than favorable towards the idea. But I stuck to my guns and did it anyway. Rebellious much?
After seeing the results I think you too might agree, everything just looks better painted black…
Happy fact: While we did replace all the door handles, we decided not to replace the doors. These are the original (circa 1962) builder grade hollow core doors that came with the house. But they look so classic and elegant now, all dressed in black.
It’s amazing what a couple coats of paint can do, and a little rebellion…
Better after, don’t you think? We are super excited with how it turned out, and I’m so glad I trusted my instincts and just went for it!
In my next post I’m sharing how we did our photo gallery wall, stay tuned!
