Hey there, guys! I hope you got a chance to check out my spring home tour along with the other gorgeous tours in the Hello Spring Home Tour this week. Today I wanted to show you how I spiffed up the dining room/kitchen with a little pantry door makeover.
In my home, the pantry connects the kitchen and dining room. I guess you could call the dining room more of a breakfast nook but I call it the dining room because that’s where we eat all of our meals and we don’t have a designated dining room separate from the kitchen.
Anyway, after we added the shiplap and painted the kitchen cabinets white, it was just a whole lot of white in this area. I figured that painting the pantry doors would do a great job to break up some of that white and it would also help define each space by giving a little visual separation to the dining room and pantry.
I love the contrast between black and white and I think black interior doors are so moody and awesome, so I decided to paint the doors black.
I used Iron Ore from Sherwin-Williams in an oil based satin finish. I love this color! It’s not a stark black. It’s almost warm in person.
I wanted to give my pretty, new doors some fancy jewelry so I decided to replace the knobs with these beautiful antique brass knobs from Nostalgic Warehouse. The knobs I chose are the New York Single Dummy Doorknob with New York Plate in an Antique Brass finish.
Aren’t they gorgeous! I love the old timey feel of the antique brass. And they pop so beautifully against the black doors.
I’m so excited with how the new pantry doors turned out. They are the perfect moody accent to the space! Here’s a before and after for comparison.
I’ll be back next week with more kitchen makeover progress, so stay tuned!
