  2. Gorgeous. Love the doors.

  3. Diane Weeks says:

    Painting the doors black was the right decision. It makes the white pop out more. I have a lot of black and white in my living room and love how they work together. You did a great job with your outdoor furniture to by the way! Have a super weekend! Diane

    Happy weekend Shayna!

    Black doors rock! I recently painted the interior of my front door and I love the elegance it adds. I plan to do the same next with my French doors. Yours look beautiful.

  6. Lorie Sullivan says:

    We have exactly the same doors! They are a light stain…………but I love your black doors!

  7. Beautiful! I’m really surprised I like the black as much as I do. Thanks for sharing! Maybe I’ll be inspired to paint a little outside my comfort zone.

  8. Michelle says:

    They look amazing! I’ve been thinking of doing the same thing, but I’ve been so scared to try it….you may have just given me the push I needed!

  9. They look rich and expensive now.
    Very high drama!!
    I like it!!

    Love them.. Where did you get the wing back chair?

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you! I bought the chairs at a thrift store and had them reupholstered in antique European grain sacks! Love them! 🙂

    Hi Shayna ~
    The doors are beautiful, such a bold move to use black, but I am seeing this more and more.
    My sister painted the inside of her front door black, and it is beautiful and like you said for a short moment rich looking.
    I would love to do the same to my front door, but I have to think about it a little more.

    It look so good in your room –
    Have a great weekend

  12. Beautiful Shayna, it’s exactly what the room needed. Depth,

  13. Dawna says:

    Great change!! I love it!!

  14. Laura says:

    Can you tell me what brand your doors are? We are looking at putting in some doors and I really like the look of yours. The black looks amazing! Thanks!

    • Shayna says:

      Thank you so much, Laura! Unfortunately, I don’t remember exactly where we got our doors. When we built, our contractor gave me a few books and I picked from there. I believe we ordered from ProBuild, a local store in our area. I’m pretty sure both our front door, and french doors, are made by ThermaTru. You may be able to look at their website?? Sorry that’s not more helpful.

    love it! love all the white,but a little touch of the black is sharp!

    I don’t comment often because someone else has already said what I planned to, but I’m gonna write anyway.
    LOVE the black doors! They seem to add sophistication to the room, although like you I love white French doors too.
    I’m waffling on painting interior doors black. I really like the look, but we live in a cape cod cottage that is dark in nature (not enough windows and too many walls). I don’t know if the black would darken things? But like I tell all my friends with paint questions-it’s only paint! You can always paint over it!!!

    Thanks for your blog and the inspiration you give! Marianna in Tennessee

    Well you know I’m obsessed with black doors and this is a perfect example of why! Great choice, they look so classy!

  18. Sherry says:

    I would never dream that black french doors could change a room like yours did. I am inspired but nervous as well. I have a new construction with the same size doors (12′) going from my great room to screened porch. Also, in the adjacent breakfast area and kitchen (open floor plan), I have another set of french doors (6′). Do you think the black doors will look as well with off-white/bisque walls/room colors as it does with white??
    Thanks for your inspiration!

    • Shayna says:

      Hi Sherry! 🙂 Your home sounds lovely! I wouldn’t hesitate to paint those doors black. They really make a statement and a *pop* for your home. Black goes with everything, and I think black doors will look lovely with an off white color! Paint away! 🙂
