Painted Door Makes Wall Pop

Back when my husband and I added board and batten to a wall in our kitchen, I decided all that white was too much and painted the entry door from our garage to our kitchen black.

This is a slightly late reveal, since you can see the black door in our Simple Kitchen Command Center post.

The contrasting color looks phenomenal. It ties in with our black kitchen appliances, black kitchen table, and the top section of our command center.

Here was the white door before we added the command center, but after the board and batten went in:

It’s so simple to paint a door – just remove any locks and knobs, tape it off, and paint it. (Find door painting tips on Pinterest here).

When we first painted it, every time we walked into the room and saw the “black void” we thought someone had accidentally left the door to the garage open. But, we’ve since adjusted and we just love it.

Here’s the before and after (I think my phone’s camera lens had a smudge – these pics didn’t come out well!):
