Now that I have some more lighting in the room with the newly installed LED dimmable recessed lights, I can start determining paint colors.  Picking a paint color for me is like asking which eye do I want to get punched in.  It’s torture!!!  There are millions of paint colors to choose from and I always seem to pick exactly the wrong color.  This time, I’m hoping better lighting will help, but it probably won’t.  At the least, I am sure I want gray and white in the room, with dark doors.  That does narrow it down to several thousand options.  Knowing me, I’ll have at least 50 paint samples when it’s all said and done

Since I’ve almost convinced myself of the dark doors, I’ll start with picking paint for that first.  I did run across a beautiful color for my interior doors that I keep going back to, Benjamin Moore Wrought Iron.  Check out my board for Interior Door Colors.


Wrought Iron is a dark gray, almost black paint color. I love how it looks!

I also found a couple of pins where Dear Lillie used Benjamin Moore Mopboard Black:

Both of these colors are speaking to me, so I think I’ve narrowed the choice for the doors.  That wasn’t so hard.  I’ll go up to my neighborhood Ace Hardware and get samples of both to see how they will look.

In the meantime, I’ve mentioned to Dad once or twice about painting the doors, but I think he thinks I’m kidding.  Hopefully, I’ll have better luck convincing him once my brand new paint sprayer shows up.  Listen, I tried painting doors before with a brush and it looks hideous.  I’m sure it was 80% user error, 10% crappy paint, and 10% cheap brushes.  Whatever the cause, I’m not doing it again.  Those doors are getting sprayed and  spending $61.00 for a paint sprayer will be worth every penny.

After doing some research, I settled on the HomeRight C800766 Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer.  I’m a little concerned that I’m going to have over spray all over the house but, I can’t worry about that now.  I have doors to paint, people!!!!
