Sometimes it’s the little things that often go unnoticed that make a difference. For me, I can’t stop thinking about black hinges on white doors. I just love the way it looks!

When we were building I asked how much it would cost us to switch out the builder grade painted hinges out for oil rubbed bronze/black. They paint the doors, hinges, and trim all at once to save time and money. I wish I could remember what they quoted us, but it was RIDICULOUS. We red lined it and went with the painted hinges. Now I can’t stop thinking about it again. Here are the double doors from our master bath to the bedroom.
And in the hallway to the powder room.
My plan was to simply take the old hinges off, spray paint them, and reattach. Time consuming, but certainly cost effective, right?
We took all the hinges off the doors in our master. Of course once they were all off we realized how bad they looked. Big ‘ol dried paint drips, chips, rust colored streaks from WD-40, etc. They looked horrible. Stripping 90 (yes, 90) door hinges is not my idea of fun. So, I searched online and found some in bulk, which brings my cost per hinge down to a little over $1.00. No brainer right there!! Still not sure why they were going to charge us thousands when we were building, but whatever. They should be here tomorrow and I can’t wait to get them up!
So, what do you think? Are you Team Black Hinges or Team Seriously They’re Just Hinges Get Over It? Ha!
