Painted Black Furniture Inspirations

Typically Black isn't my first go to color but it doesn't change the fact it's still elegant and timeless. So to help convince me to use it on something I went to pinterest to help get me inspired.

I decided I don't use enough black. I have seen it on Pinterest countless times, these wonderful black painted distressed pieces but until now have not found anything I wanted painted black. However, my small interest to use black paint grew to the point I knew I had to finally make myself buy some. So it was last Friday I finally did and I guess I really must have put out into the universe that I wanted black paint because when I got home I had received my long awaited General Finishes Paint Samples and one of the colors was a black. I decided from there it was meant to be and so it was on! I think I would have dropped everything right then and there to start painting if I could have. But held it off until the next day. Here is also my review on my General Finishes Milk Paint sample.

To get me warmed up I started with some Mason Jars with an awesome bright aqua color I picked from Home Depot while there to getting my Black Paint. Now enough of my ramblings...here are some of the images that helped me get back to work.

Black Buffet
I do have to say I do like the original look to this. I'm often a wood person but the wood on this is beautiful. I would also love this buffet in white as much as I like that black.

Black Dresser

You have to check this one out. She did here entire office made over with painted black furniture and it all turned out ubber cute.

I have a few desks and I'd love to try something like this to one of them.

I hope some of these inspire you as they did me. Black is still not my favorite color for furniture but it remains a color that will still be the best option for decor and specific pieces.

Hi my name is Katie and I have been an artist ever since I was able to pick up a crayon or marker to draw something. I've taken on many roles as an artist and have enjoyed every medium I've touched from hands on painting, to the digital world of graphic design and web development and even had a successful hand-made jewelry business. My most recent venture is restoring old furniture pieces to look new again. To me painting is equivalent of having a day at the spa. I enjoy it that much! I hope you find what we do here inspiring and you come across something  you love!
