This is our downstairs landing. A tiny room with 4 doors plus two openings. It kind of feels like the room in Harry Potter that spins after you try a door. Anyhow, two of the doors had pretty bad holes in them that I tried patching with wood putty. Sadly, they ended up looking like this.
I knew I wanted to paint the room anyhow, so I thought I'd paint the doors too. I went with a bold navy blue as it's pretty much my favorite color and since I wouldn't be brave enough to try it in a larger room. Actually, that's not true. I would totally do it if I didn't have to repaint it in a year and a half. I figure this space can be repainted in under an hour or so. Here is another before shot of the space.
Small, lots of doors, you get the gist. I had already taped before I remembered to take pictures, but oh well.
And after! Navy blue, white doors and a new lampshade that looks seriously homemade (because it is) if you get too close.
Overall I am really pleased with it. Since I painted the large family room that it opens to all white, I like the deep color. The family room had really damaged paneling on both ends that were different shades, buckling etc... So I painted them all white to match the drywalled sides and boy is it so much better! I think I have pictures of that before, but it will be a while before I deem that room ready for "after" shots.
