A month or so ago I posted a bunch of inspiration pictures of gray interior doors and mentioned that I was thinking about painting a couple of doors in my house gray as well. Guess what? Last Friday I decided I just couldn’t sleep another night until I did it. So I did.
I chose a medium gray color in Sherwin Williams Gray Shingle mixed in Benjamin Moore Advance paint in satin. Because the door was already painted white, I didn’t have to prime, but I did sand it with fine grit sandpaper and use liquid de-glosser. Like last time I used this paint, it took two coats to cover it.
I think that I like it. I go back and forth. It certainly makes things more interesting in there. I am intending to add a shelf over the knobs that hold my purse with these brackets and paint the wood for the shelf the same color gray as the door. I am hoping that it will make the gray feel like it blends in a little more. This is my inspiration for the shelf.
So obviously just the shelf. Not the million dollar stove. But this picture has all the same colors that I have in my kitchen with blues, cream, white cabinetry and black counters. My backsplash should (if the tile company knows what’s good for them) be on the way as I post this and hopefully I will soon be able to show you an after of that as well. I want a shelf there because it is one of the only places that my cats wouldn’t be able to get to and it would be nice to have a place to put plants and flowers where they won’t get eaten.
Now I just need to decide if I want to paint the interior of the front door gray as well.
What do ya’ll think? Should I paint it the same gray? Or leave it as is?
