I have read and re-read Joni's recent post 'Updating Your Decor'. Great advice and insight. One thing I keep coming back to is her recommendation to paint interior doors high gloss black, especially if the doors are inexpensive/builder grade doors. I have a pantry door in my kitchen; its almost just like Joni's, above. It's a narrow door and is angled into a corner. Seeing Joni's door makes me want to update my door hardware and paint mine black...
