loving: black doors

A few weeks back I was watching the Real Housewives of DC and noticed Mary's front door. It looked just like mine (pictured below) but the door was painted black. And I've been thinking about it ever since! I just love the contrast with the white trim and side windows. I am going to paint the front of the door this week so it's the perfect time to paint the back too!

Here are a few more examples.. What do you all think?


  1. LOVE IT! Do it! Do it! Can't wait to see!


  2. Do it! I want to do the exact same thing, but not sure what the Husband will say. (My door looks the same as yours!)

    Just like with white paint, do you need to worry about the "right" black?!? Or, does black = black and that's the end of the story?


  3. Black black black! I've been pretty scared of dressing up the door w/ black, but you could never go wrong w/ black or white!

  4. We painted our door black in our townhouse and we loved it! I say go for it!

  5. Love that idea! It is so classic!

  6. Believe it or not, I bought black paint last week and hopefully this week, I will also have a front door painted black! Good choice.
