Black Door - Paint Recommendation

blackchamoisNovember 28, 2012

I would love to paint my entry door black, as in this picture.

Do you have a black door and a recommendation for paint color?

Like whites, there are so many shades!!! Who knew!

Thank you!

There was a discussion on black door paints on the Home Decorating forum recently. You might want to do a search on that forum to see if you can find it.

That's a lovely shade of black. It appears to have some blue or teal to it in the photo, although I have a crummy monitor. Do be careful with black. Often they will become a dark lifeless hole on the face of your home. You might look for some that are not a true black but that have other undertones that go well with your house's coloring.

There's a house around here that does have a black, black door and it looks so great on that particular house. Today I passed a really rich brown black on a gold house that looked great. Don't see that color very often.
