Did you miss yesterday’s antique black dresser makeover?
I will be revealing the new paint I have found later this week but will be showing you several pieces that I have “tried it out on”.
My next reveal?
Here ya’ go.
I love pieces like the one I’m sharing today. They are such a unique size.
Not too big….not too small.
They can be used in so many places.
This one was just out-dated.
And I did what I normally do NOT do.
I painted in black again.
It will look great in the salon that I will be placing a few pieces in.
The paint worked out great on this surface with NO priming again.
This was the smooth surface of maple (it is maple isn’t it?) and I wondered if it would adhere.
These photos are driving me crazy a bit.
The lighting is yucky and when I add light later it appears grainy.
I am trying out my new “studio” and I haven’t figured out my lighting yet.
You know what I mean…….big whig bloggers (hoo hoo hee hee ha ha) like myself need a professional studio to do their photos in. That way I (hubby) don’t have to lug out all my pieces in the yard to get good lighting for photos.
And being a big whig blogger (hoo hoo hee hee ha ha) like myself, I put my foot down and said to my hubby….
“I WANT A STUDIO”.
“CLEAN UP THE GARAGE”.
That’s a good idea.
So, I’m trying to decorate a section for photo shoots. I am hoping that the light from the open garage door will give me enough light. There is a balcony over this garage door which blocks some of the light.
The backdrop will change eventually, I was just grabbing what I had to hide paint spatters and dings and scratches on my garage wall.
But enough about me.
Well, not really.…I could keep that up all day but here is more about this little-black-buffet.
I used gold leaf on the doors to embellish a bit.
I liked it with the brass color of the hardware and the gold color of the wood peeping through.
And guess what?
I painted the drawer again.
By the way, I was going to say, “Pee-Pie” but I thought what if you don’t say “Pee-Pie” instead of “Peak-a-boo” and think I am saying “Pee-Pie” like “Pee. Pee“, you would think GROSS…..and I didn’t want you to think I was talking about….well…..you get it.
I just thought you might want to know that.
You didn’t, did you?
I told you I could go on about myself all day.
Back on track, the drawer was in bad shape and painting it gave it a pretty and fun pop.
I left the maple in the cabinet though….look how pretty it looks with the black.
So, one more piece with the new “TOP SECRET” paint.
I will test out two new colors before my reveal and I will let you know how you can get your own.
$13.00 a quart has worked out really good so far. We will see…….
Does black freak you out?
I could see black being implemented into my own decor actually.
Almost easier than white.
Don’t be hating on me people.
I know you all decorate so beautifully with all white…..
I want to when I grow up.
But I keep going back to color.
I’m shabby….I’m just not chic.
I may even be doing more color this week with the new paint.
Don’t run away!
I will go back to creamy white and soft colors again.
But for now…..
It will be interesting to see how the black pieces sell.
What do you think?
Would a black piece work in your home?
I would love to know.
