OK, so I would have said you were crazy...that white is the only way to go. BUT, black painted doors actually look so shiny and pretty! I won't tell my husband though, because he's spent some of the best years of his life painting/repainting/chipping and ultimately replacing doors because they just HAD to be white. Gulp.
Here's what we learned about doors through our renovation process: 1) Nine times out of ten, trying to paint over dark oil-based paint with white is a waste of time, and 2) sometimes you have to show the doors who's boss. Sorry guys, you're outta here!!!
We decided that a few doors were worth saving. These glass-paned ones before were originally painted red and navy, but thanks to 1,435,882 coats of paint, they are now white! Yay!
