For the two years that we have lived in our home, I have gone back and forth and back and forth again over whether I should paint the kitchen door.
This weekend, Jim was out of town, which is always classic “Courtney starts a project” time. So, I quickly polled my instagram and facebook groups and got going on my kitchen door paint makeover!
The general consensus seemed to be- PAINT THE KITCHEN DOOR! A lot of votes were cast for the gray family- dark and light, a few suggested things like navy(though that is what I used on the inside of the corner cabinet!), and a few people voted to leave it alone and pretty as is.
Ultimately, I’d had a white door for two years now, I was ready to change it up.
I perused the sample paint cans I had on hand down in the basement and my available options were: Hale Navy, Revere Pewter, Kendall Charcoal, and the Annie Sloan French Linen we used on the kitchen cabinets in our last house.
Originally I was going to go with a lighter gray first, like Revere Pewter to see how I liked it and then if I wanted to do a more bold color choice, I could go for the charcoal.
But then I remembered that I had painted the white door in our sun room last year and had used Kendall Charcoal and have been nothing but happy happy happy with it. So I opted to just go bold straight out of the gate.
Ready to see it?
I LOVE IT!
I’m really, really happy that I went for it.
I love simple projects like this kitchen door paint makeover because it was FREE, it took me an afternoon to do(not even that- just waiting for the first coat of paint to dry took the longest), and adds that element of charm and personality that I’m constantly working on infusing into our home.
I had forgotten how much I love painting interior doors because they are such a fun way to add some dimension, with very little effort.
So….which door is next?
