It was almost 2 years ago now that I first read an article on Houzz titled 11 Reasons to Paint Your Interior Doors Black, and like you, and as even the author of the article admits, it seems counter intuitive in a way.

Yet after seeing the photos, because words alone cannot convince you, I couldn’t wait to try it. Nor could my friend Kristi who recently rennovated their new home. We were instant converts and I’ll show you why!
