Painted Patio French Door

WHEN IN DOUBT PAINT IT BLACK…. I SERIOUSLY DOUBTED MY FIRST CHOICE IN A PAINT COLOR FOR THE FRENCH DOORS OFF OUR PATIO,  AND AFTER SEEING HOW QUICKLY THEY GOT DIRTY I’M GLAD I WENT WITH MY SECOND CHOICE, BLACK; NEUTRAL IS ALWAYS A WINNER ANWWAY!


Painted Black French Doors On A Walkout Basement, Stamped Concrete PatioI’m back with round two of painting the patio french doors. If you scroll down you’ll see my original paint choice, I thought it would really give the space a bit of a pop only to find out that dirty hands leave dirty hand prints all over a pretty celery green door; insert sad face here. 

Black Painted Basement Door, Hunter Boots, Ferns, and Yellow Ball StemsMy boys and hubby use this door more often than the main entrance. From their jobs they are always greasy dirty, you know those kind of hands that still look filthy even after they wash them? Well I wasn’t about to continuously fight it and have to be washing a door all the time so I went with my second choice, black.  

Basement Door Green Paint

Painted Black French Doors On A Walkout Basement, Stamped Concrete PatioOne of the reason I went with black was to hide the dirt, and I already had it in my stash from painting the farmhouse bench. It was the good stuff too from Sherwin Williams and made for exterior use so to me it was a no brainer…. use what I have and love it or learn to love it. 

Painted Black French Doors Well guess what? I LOVE it, it’s so much better than the green any day and it works with everything else we have going on at the backside of our home. I didn’t bother painting the white portion in the center of the glass not just because it’s an absolute pain to do but we plan on putting in a all new french doors before winter hits.

Painted Black French Doors Keep your fingers crossed that the weather holds out and we find the time to do it. The french doors we have are 8 years old and in need of something new, things just aren’t made like they used to be anymore and doors are one of those things. We had one blow open in a summer store this year so it’s damaged and we want to replace them all at the same time with the same kind of door. 

Painted Black French Doors I have more to show you in the upcoming weeks; our backyard project was completely finished this week so all I need to do is photograph it to share with you. It’s amazing how much it changed the look of our home and I’m sure the value of it also. I can’t believe what a family friendly space it turned out to be.

  1. Wow. So much better than the green. Black paint always seems to lift pretty much anything up a notch – and I don’t mind the white interior panes either. You’ve made such an improvement with the new wall and the stamped concrete. Wish I could update my driveway but that’s waayy down on the list of things to do. Enjoy your new patio as much as possible before winter arrives.

    1. Pat, I agree and I’m loving the black and it seems to work with the cabin better. With them being black, neutral, I won’t have the urge to change the color often (lets hope).

    Black doors, great choice! That works nicely!

    1. Laura I think black is the best choice when in doubt it’s a “can’t go wrong” color.

  3. I love how it’s looking, Dawn. The black doors look so much better. Like Pat M., I don’t mind the white panes – didn’t even notice them until you pointed them out…lol. I hope the weather holds out for replacing them this fall so that they’re not blowing open this winter.

    1. Jen, we’ve had snow flurries already and hubby is on a project out of town for the next month so the doors may have to wait till spring 🙁

  4. I agree, the black door looks so much better. I love everything you did and/or had done in this post. Fabulous job!

    1. Ivory, I’m enjoying all the work we’ve done too and so is my family.

    I love the black French doors…much more classy than the green. Love that you painted the chair as well. It’s a very charming space.
