Interior Doors that I painted Black

Here are a few of my interior doors that I have painted black. I got this suggestion from my college roommate who lives in Georgia, she had this done several years ago and I just love it! Brings such a sophisticated look to my house(not that I am sophisticated in any way, of course)!

The color is Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black and I love it, I just haven't had the time to finish all of the doors in my house, but eventually I will get around to it!

The color of the yellow walls is Sahara Gold from Farrell Calhoun and the green color in the kitchen is Grasscloth by Behr at Home Depot. Love these colors, although I want to repaint our hallway and living area since they have been Sahara Gold for almost 9 years now. Too long for me to make a change since I usually paint every other year, but those ceilings are just way too high to tackle that often!


  1. We had black interior doors in London and are trying to replicate it here in our house in the US. We have painted the doors black but are wondering if we should put a top coat on them of some sort so they don't chip. What did you do to yours and how did they fare?

    Yes, I wish that I would have put a poly coating on them to keep it from chipping. My friend did not put a top coat on hers either and hasn't had much problem with chipping. I just accept the fact that I have 4 kids, a cat and 2 dogs! :) I do go over them every now and then though when I have the black paint out. Good Luck! I really do love the change that they make in my house.
