Updating old plywood doors detailsview itemupdating cancel update
Our house was built in the early 1970’s and slowly but surely, we have been updating the entire house.The last of the dark stained doors were painted white a couple weeks ago. We lightly sanded with a fine grit and applied two coats of Zinsser 123 latex primer.After I painted the walls an almost white/super light gray shade, it just turned into the hallway of no color.I knew I needed to do something with the cheap hollow core doors but didn’t want to break the bank. It was simple enough to do to the rest of the doors in the house.
I ran through a few gray options but decided they would compete with the gray in the floors, and then I saw this from Dear Lillie and was absolutely sold on black: There’s just something about black doors that brings character, richness and sophistication to a space.
We are in the process of having the plugs changed and hopefully the remainder of the hallway will be finished soon.
This hallway is difficult to photograph as there isn’t much natural light.

As you can see though, the white paint looks so much fresher and cleaner than the old dark stain.
