Paint It Black: Furniture Repainting, Stage 2

It brings me great joy to have finally completed the bedroom dresser and to have moved it back to its proper home. It's taken up space on the balcony and in my living room while I went through the stages of repainting it. I'm finally starting to feel like I have my living room back (and free of clutter).

So far, I’m very impressed with the air of sophistication the dresser adds. I was concerned black may be too basic and safe, but with the semi-gloss finish and nickle drawer pulls, I think it glams up the room.

I will post more later once I have truly finished redecorating my bedroom. I have a few minor details to take care of, before I post pics of the entire room. I thought this was to be the final stage of my furniture painting (or at least for now), but I am in the process of refinishing a small wooden plant stand. Small fish, though.

Thanks for visiting! Let’s stay connected!

  1. WOW!! It turned it from traditional to modern! You really hit it on the head! WOW!!!!!

  2. You’re right, it really did turn out well! Very sleek and sophisticated. A huge improvement on the ‘before’!!

  3. I love the modern look of it! EXCELLENT paint job!

    I painted a free dresser I found on Craigslist, but distressed it a bit….so my paint job did not have to be as perfect as yours (thank goodness).
