We Greg are is painting all our interior doors black
at my request, of course.
Here he is, intently looking for every perceived “flaw”
on our bedroom closet doors:
My mad painting skills aren’t up to his high standards,
so I just let him do it.
HE NO LIKE.
First, imagine the 2 of us at the paint store,
with me insisting that yes, I want black,
+ yes, I want semi-gloss.
Please. Are we not all on board here?
Just go to Pinterest + search “black interior doors”
if you need to be persuaded.
Or just look at this before + after of our front door:
We’re using yet more Pittsburgh Paint.
It’s Black Magic, which is actually the darkest of dark grays,
here, at the bottom of this strip o’ grays:
Not so coincidentally,
those living room walls are Flagstone,
which is the lightest, top shade on the same strip.
Hint: that’s how I make sure my colors complement each other,
repeating shades of paint from the same strip.
We all do that, right?
But back to Black Magic.
When I say gray, even though it looks black, here’s proof:
There is our Black Magic on the left,
with an generic, inky black on the right.
See the (viva la!) difference?
And please! Notice how nicely it “plays along”
with our “black” (but really dark gray) kitchen floor tile:
Meanwhile, let’s see some more black doors.
Here is the pocket door
between our bedroom + the main bath:
Disclaimer: that vanity needs more traditional pulls,
which is on my to-do list to find + order. Stay tuned.
Our vintage-style medicine cabinet,
which I love, was just hung:
Here ’tis, from Home Depot,
the Zenith Early American @ only $119!
Aaaaaand, let’s have yet 2 more look-sees into that bathroom.
It’s a vintage cabinet, which G.O. found at an antique store!
Talk about a lack of mad painting skills . . .
. . . the black’s been sprayed on very badly,
with all sorts of pesky runs, etc.
To do: sand it, paint it white
+ of course, stencil a big, fat red cross on the door!
Okay, okay — just 1 more quickie look-see.
Our beautiful bathroom’s really naughty BEFORE!
