Less than a year ago I had never painted a piece of furniture black. If I remember rightly, the sofa table in ASCP Graphite was the first piece. And I fell in love.
The perfect combination of distressing and black paint is dark furniture. It provides the best look when distressing. Usually contrast is the key when distressing, but when you have a dark paint color, a darker wood looks best. Basically, darker wood looks best when distressing almost always.
One of my repeat customers wanted me to paint this dresser for her to match one she already has that is painted black and distressed.
Two coats of Skyline, some distressing, and some SC Johnson (it just seems to do better over the black) wax and it was done!
What do you think of this makeover? Are you a fan of black painted furniture?
