Painting the Inside of My Front Door BLACK!!!


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 when Mr. Add Value left the house for a long period of time, I got out my painters tape and black paint and brush and started to put on coat #1.  It’s not like he would have stopped me if he knew ahead of time, but it saved ALOT of time explaining what I was doing and why.

The white door was so boring and becoming dated!  It (and I) needed the change!
