I did it! Painted my patio doors black!
I have been thinking about doing this for a while and finally decided to dive in and do it. NO REGRETS - I love it! I don't want to show off too much of my kitchen until it is closer to being done but I just had to share my new black doors. (Pay no attention to the green ceiling and messy room).
I decided not to paint the door casing so it is consistent with the rest of the trim in the room and I love the way the white frames out the black. It also keeps the black from being too overwhelming.
I painted the doors with a brush and used about four coats of Martha Stewart paint which is on clearance at Home Depot since it is discontinued. So I was able to get this huge change for less than $7.00. YAY! I spray painted the window grids outside. Here is the before:
I have removed the wall treatment on the slanted wall and I have bought blue ceiling paint to cover the green ceiling that is there now. I bought blue wall paint to cover over the very bright green and I love the few changes I have made already.
Ok, that is my progress thus far. I have all of my paint and materials so hopefully in the next few days I can make some headway on the entire kitchen. More pics to follow!
