We’ve all seen the gorgeous front doors that are painted turquoise, or yellow, or bright green, or even orange on the outside to give a fun jolt of color to a front porch. But what about interior doors? It seems that we’re a little more apprehensive to paint our interior doors in anything but white. Even a gorgeous, classic black seems a bit of a stretch for most of us.
Well, the interior side of my front door was in need of some attention. For the last two years, it’s been dressed in nothing but a coat of primer. And because of its dull flat finish, primer gets dirty quite easily. Yep, something needed to be done, but I just couldn’t bring myself to paint it white. But could I really make the leap to a bold, bright, colorful door?
I turned to the world wide web for some inspiration.

So what say you? Could you go bold on your interior doors? Could you throw caution to the wind and say goodbye to white doors?
I can. I did. I’ll show you how it turned out this afternoon.
(By the way, I had fully intended to show you my newly painted front door this morning, but just as I was finishing up the painting last night, I had a little electrical snafu that caused me to lose electricity in my breakfast area and kitchen. So instead of finishing my front door, I had to turn my attention to installing a new electrical outlet. Don’t you just hate it when you’re on a roll, and then something like that happens?! Oh well. That’s life. Now I’m off to finish up my door!)
Addicted 2 Decorating is where I share my DIY and decorating journey as I remodel and decorate the 1948 fixer upper that my husband, Matt, and I bought in 2013. Matt has M.S. and is unable to do physical work, so I do the majority of the work on the house by myself. You can learn more about me here.
