I Want to Paint It Black!

So, this isn't going so well, huh? My free time has been going to my freelance work lately. The freelance world is somewhat new to me, and I'm still trying to learn the balance between work and home while being home full time.

So in the attempt to ease back into this, I'm trying to remind myself that not each post has to be a long, over whelming, big WOW factor project. Right?!?!?!? So pardon me as I ease back into this thing.

Here I go....

No before photo and the after photo is an iPhone pic. But, it's here and I'm posting!
We added the curtians to our front door quite some time ago and I planned to paint the back of the door black...and planned, and planned. I finally got around to it! A small project that has made a huge difference! Now I'm trying to decide if I want to paint all of our interior doors black. Or maybe just the ones on the first floor. Or maybe just this one is enough. What do y'all think? What color are your interior doors? Love or hate them?

P.S. I know our horseshoe (from Churchill Downs) is considered upside down. But I look at it this way--it's showering all who enter our home with good luck! ;)

Hey Jessi: I just found your blog while looking at Instagram pics. I absolutely love your style, especially the way you arrange found treasures with everyday items! I had to comment on this post in particular because i can relate to the painting things black. Last year I got the bug to paint the inside of my front door black, and also did the entire surround..I love it! Like you, I am now walking around my house trying to figure out what other doors might look good in black! I need you to come consult for my house!! Anna

Welcome to Yankee Belle Home Anna! I am so happy to have you here. Let me know if you venture into painting more of your doors black! It's definitely on my list, but that list seems to overwhelmingly long. ;)
