I did it! I painted my stained from interior door white!
A few months Six months ago I posted my front door dilemma HERE. But here is the abbreviated version and the before photos if you don’t want to get side tracked! Stained door adjacent to white interior door. All of our interior doors are painted white. My son would call this “hashtag suburban mom probs.” I call it maddening!
I sat on this potential project until this summer. Because once you go with paint, it’s a P.I.T.A. to go back to stain. Message me if you need the acronym explained. So the weekend my husband drove our daughter back to college for a summer internship, I decided to start the transition from stain to paint.
Stain to Paint
I started with the side windows. I freaked (a bit) after I finished 1/2 of one side. But, I kept going until I got to this stage. The hyperventilating and the swear words continued until I finished both side panes. And, then I decided to wait for the boys’ reactions. I got 4 thumbs up and a fist bump by the end of the weekend! I admit it took me a day to love the change (the stain door in the middle was a distraction).
And here is the finished all white interior side of the front door! I used Behr Pure-White high gloss (between paws, hand prints, backpacks, lax gear and tennis bags I know it will take a beating).
DONE & LOVING THE FINISHED LOOK!
