More New Finds To Play With!

Guess what?... I found a couple new pieces to play with.  A vintage Dixie chest and dresser.  I like the shape of these, something a little different.  It's hard to tell from the picture, but some of the drawers are curved.  I'm thinking super high gloss black!  Like a black lacquer look.  I don't think I have painted anything black in years, other than maybe a frame or two.  So it's high time.  But not just black... high gloss city!!!

I'm thinking this dresser would make a neat buffet!

And end up with a finish something like this maybe... but glossier, if I can manage.

Stay tuned to see how they turn out!  
When's the last time you painted something black?  Have you ever? Do you a lot? What's the deal?

  1. Can't wait to see! We painted some kids bookshelves in black with semi-gloss poly so they're pretty shiny. I've always wondered what it'd be like to paint in lacquer!

  2. i painted a little bedside table black and put it in the powder room.. i love it! hey, I linked to your blog in my post today! Go take a look at my bench! :D

    Can't wait to see these guys painted glossy black :o)

  3. i love black cant wait to see how they turn out good luck

  4. I'm getting ready to paint a side table black, with maybe some decoupage on the top. Haven't tried to do anything like that yet. We'll see how it comes out.
