Hallway Makeover With White Painted Trim
This summer I spent a TON of time painting my wood trim in the upstairs of my house white. Today I’m going to share the hallway makeover that made a huge impact! If you want to see more, be sure to stop by my blog when you're done reading!
This was the hallway in my home, dark and outdated oak from the 1980's. I couldn't wait to set started bettering and brightening this space! The door to the right enters into the bathroom, the door straight ahead with the sign on it enters the nursery, and the door to the left enters the master bedroom. This hallway gets a lot of use, as you can imagine.
I did something a little different with the doors. After removing them, instead of doing white like the rest of the trim, I decided to go with gloss black.
I painted them outside on our patio and transformed the door handles by spray painting them black.
What was once an outdated, dark hallway is now transformed to a bright and modern space.
I’m not going to lie, all of this was an incredible amount of work. Each door frame took three coats and each coat took an hour. I spent most of the months of June and July painting trim in my free time. Although, when I look at the HUGE improvement between these before and after pictures, I know it was all worth it.
At first I didn’t love the drastic contrast between the black doors and white trim, but it has really grown on me. I think it looks much more modern.
It just looks SO different! If you liked these before and after photos, please share them!
Thanks for reading! Stop over to my blog to see more before and afters of my white trim transformation to be published on Monday!
