Hi there! We finally finished painting the French doors to our study and I'm so happy with the new look!  Our study is right next to our front entry door, which is also black and it looks so much better.  I also have an entry table and buffet that are both black in this open entry area, so it flows nicely with those pieces as well.  I love the contrast against all the white in this room!  You can see the doors before in the below picture.

I ended up going with Sherwin Williams Urbane Bronze for my color, which is a deep charcoal as opposed to pure black.   And I'm so pleased with the color!  To paint the doors, we took them off the hinges and sprayed them with our paint sprayer and compressor using the same technique as this project, giving it a nice smooth finish.

This is for sure one of those easy projects that sure makes a huge impact!  And one that left me wondering why we didn't do it sooner...

Have a great day!

  5. oooohhhh.... LOVE!!!
    Since painting the living room and hallway gray with white trim, we are looking to replace the doors to all the bedrooms eventually and were thinking white. But I keep seeing black doors and falling more in love with that look!

  8. That is some really clean paint job! I agree that painting the doors black is a great decision because compared to the original, the new black door seems much more modern and slick. I also think the new door really accents the room well. I might have to do a little home makeover as well over the weekend!
