Doors and windows are so popular today with vintage loving folks and DIYers. I’ve never seen so many ways to reuse them before – It’s amazing!
But what if they are still attached to your house? Seriously – does that mean they are out for the count from a décor standpoint? I say NO! (Unless you are a renter, in which case you are probably outta luck on this one, sorry!)
My neighbors have already seen this, but I knew I had to share with all of you because it is such an easy update. (Bear with me friends!) I had a really blah front door inside. It is in front of a big staircase and a very open area. It just looked boring and not up to its surroundings.
Last winter I decided to paint it. I picked a brick/dark red color and just took the plunge!
It turned out that I absolutely loved it and still do to this day. What an easy way to brighten up your life! Every morning when I come downstairs, it still makes me smile. (Plus, it takes very little paint to do.)
After the front door project, I decided my garage entry door needed to be a little more perky.
My husband loves to golf, so I went that route.
I spruced up the step and also added a chalkboard area so we could write each other messages.
Some days when the kiddo comes home from school I hear scratching on the door. I know she’s grabbed the chalk and left us a little message. It’s so fun and really made the door far more interesting and useful.
I still have plenty of interior doors in my house for options. I’m not sure if I will do any more of them, but there’s always a chance. (wink, wink!) What about you? Have you painted an interior door and if so, please share!
