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.
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.
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.
