@phavard - I'd suggest starting out with just one (or two) strategically located black doors to see how it goes. If, after a reasonable period of time, the doors didn't "scar, scratch, peel and look awful," it's nothing to have them repainted black.

Keep in mind that the look of black doors does not appeal to everyone, even when they do remain blemish-free. It's just a matter of taste, and it's possible that's where your builder and your husband's objections are really coming from.

One unpleasant way to spur a person to clean and declutter is to have a hoarder for a neighbor. I don't know why this is never mentioned on this site as I can't be the only person who deals with it, but I've never seen it addressed. Anyway, when I found out for sure that my neighbor wasn't just a lousy housekeeper, but a true hoarder, I wrote my mom an email thanking her for bringing me up in a perfectly clean home. After having to complain to the city about the state of her property, and seeing the inside of her house after some of her friends decided to dehoard for her, when one of us is going to throw something out, we ask each other if we have a deep emotional attachment to it.

Packing for our recent move, I went through boxes of stuff I hadn't touched since our initial move 12 years prior! I figured for the most part, if I hadn't used it or missed it in that time, it was time to let it go. However, there were some things that brought back certain memories and stories for me, and I knew these were the reasons I hung onto them for so long--they were valuable memories and I was afraid of forgetting them without the physical item as a reminder. But our new house had far less storage so we needed to downsize and I was looking forward to purging. And I also knew I didn't want to deal with lots of clutter for our next move. So for large items that don't fit in a shoebox, instead of keeping the actual physical item, I plan to create a scrapbook with photos of these things with a narrative of the story that went along with them. Then they're headed for donation to hopefully create memories for someone else! And once we have all our furniture and appliance needs met, we're dealing with inflow and outflow by not acquiring any item for the home unless at least one of similar size leaves.
