Hello AT,

I am unofficially doing a purge, paint and minimal renovation in my apartment.

I missed the official "Therapy" start date.

I have changed the doors and door knobs on my two bedrooms and bathroom and will be replacing the tracks for the hallway doors.

All of that turns out to be the easy part, now I'm stuck with a paint color question which is causing me much anxiety.

The doors are standard factory issue I purchased at Home Depot, the knobs are brushed nickel and glass, as you can see from the picture all three doors are at the end of the hallway the furthest apart by 30 inches (directly across from each other)...

(Note: Include a pic of your problem and your question gets posted first.)

Sorry but I couldn't get the third door in the frame.

The parquet floors of my apartment are stained ebony, and the hallway doesn't get much daylight when the bedroom doors are open so I'm painting the walls pearly high gloss white easy to clean and my artist daughter can knock herself out on it.

My question is, would it be too much to paint the bedroom and hallway doors high-gloss black?

I am so tired of white doors!

Plus I have had to wash them every weekend because there are kids with their icky fingers and crayons running around the house.

Thanks! Collette
