Two down... 13 to go!

I mentioned in a previous post that I wanted to paint all of our interior doors black... my favorite color! Well, I finished the first one and there are ONLY 14 more to go! That's totally doable, right? 

It took about an hour and fifteen minutes to completely finish one door! It took two coats of 2-in-1 paint (paint & primer in one). This is the kind I used:


I chose to do the inside of our front door first because the previous owners painted it with what looked like flat white paint- not easy to clean and, in my opinion, not very pretty! 

Here is the before:


And the after:



I'm so excited about it! Doing this one makes me want to do all the others so much more!! 

Update!

I did it again! I painted another door! Here is the before and after...

Before:


After:


I love this one too! This is the door that leads out to the garage. It is the most used door in our house aka it gets the dirtiest! Now I just need to get a more stylish runner. Maybe I could paint that one with stripes... hmmm. Every project I complete leads to twenty more. It never ends! But it's so much fun!

I want to do this too, and your before & after pictures will be so helpful to show my husband - who is having issues envisioning black doors. Great job!
