I was painting our side entrance door yesterday and found this article in my email. Will paint the sienna colored front door black and put a nice boxwood wreath on it this week. Spruce up the porch furniture by painting maybe an apple green to add color. Great and inspiring pictures!

Ciscomom good job finding that picture, with a little bit warmer wall color, ( could be the photo) I think it would really be more inviting but it does work. I plan to paint my front door this week and already took before pictures to post. Our foyer has medium tone wood trim and the door is now a sienna deep red orange color with some black/in the foyer area including black/ tan stair treads, we'll see how it goes and I'll post the after pictures when I get done...hope we love it and I do not have to repaint it..uggh!

Look at some people's posts. Like Donald and Brandi's. They did multiple black doors on hallways or cramped areas and they liked them. Maybe go to a teacher supply store and buy a roll of black paper. Cover each door. Or do it with pieces of black construction paper. Leave a place so you see your door handle. Stand back and see if you like them black. It's not real but it gives the illusion of what these doors will look like. Put up photos you've printed in black and white and put in black frames like I believe in Donald's to tie the rooms and space to be your gallery. It may surprise you. Be fun. Put silver or gold numbers on the doors. Use accents of that in a mirrored frame in your collage. I think trying it out ? You'll truly love it!!

Love these pics and yes, I am inspired to do some door painting very soon! But you left out the most important reason of all and I suggest it needs to be added as Reason #12. As Mick Jagger says, "I see a red door and I want it painted black". Did anyone read this article without that thought crossing their mind?
