I wanted to share another small but impactful change I made in our home recently, I painted all the doors in our mudroom tricorn black by Sherwin Williams. The trend of painting doors a statement color doesn’t seem to be fading anytime soon, and it is an easy project that adds both pop and polish to your interior spaces.
A few years ago I painted the back of our front door Boothbay Gray, the pop of color works nicely as a focal point down our long front hallway. I am debating if the adjacent office doors should also be painted the same color (thoughts?). Painting the doors in a room is one of those quick and easy projects that makes a big difference in how finished a space looks.
Our mudroom has three doors in this small space, but even with multiple doors to tackle this project didn’t take long, as painting a door is quick and easy. My doors took three coats to fully cover with the black paint (I didn’t prime first, though in hindsight I think I would next time) so it was an easy weekend project that just took a few hours of time.
I don’t have a great a before picture to show you the space with the white doors, you can see a bit of the pantry door below and just see that the space is a little dull. I feel like the black adds much more interest to the room now, it also plays perfectly with the black floral mural.
You can find more info on our mudroom here including the beautiful black and white mural from Anewall. I DIY’d the board and batten wall treatment, this is such an easy (and great beginner) DIY, see more here. I recently added this small black cabinet to hold dog leashes, keys and such conveniently located to our back door. The wooden bench is the perfect spot to put on shoes, and it is currently on sale for 20% off with the code save20 (with free shipping!).
The other door goes to our pantry and the door (out of picture) on the left goes to our Cleaning Closet. All in all, this space is definitely a high traffic area in our home. While I originally painted the board and batten white, the rest of the room is still in the builder color, you can see more details here.
This isn’t the first time I have added a pop of color on a door. In our last home I added these dark gray doors throughout our kitchen area, there are a few more details in this post. The walls in that space were painted SW Rhinestone, and I felt like the dark gray added some depth in the bright and light space.
Another fun throwback project is that in our last home I added this pop of red only inside our front door (which was so fun, and even covered in a magazine). This added an unexpected touch for visitors as well as provided some extra punch in that traditional style home.
Thanks for stopping by!
I love the black doors! I just having black in my home and in my wardrobe! 😁 The mural is beautiful too.
Thank you Pat! Black always makes a statement, my wardrobe is full of it too! XOXO, Amy
