My new paint looks fabulous, but the black furniture that I had concerns about, now looks even better! Who-da thought painting the walls would make everything all sparkly feeling?! I was so inspired that I grabbed a roller and brush; my handy-dandy-always-keep-it-on-hand high glass black paint and rescued a few stragglers that had yet to be transformed. There was that horribly marred up end table from my grandfather, and a bookcase from Sam's Club. Finally transformed.
There are a lot of reasons painting furniture black is a great idea. The fact you can touch it up with a sharpie being foremost. It's just super relaxing, in a home with children, to know you can roll on a fresh surface coat every now and then with little effort. Just like the little black dress, black furniture fits every occasion, style, and budget. And it always looks good. Well...there is the dust issue, but we'll just be thankful for swiffer dusters (they're machine washable, you know!) and little girls who like to use them.
I forgot to take the before picture of the table, but take my word for it; it was a mess!
What do you think? Sweet black high gloss paint!
