Black & Blue

It seems that I have gotten away from using black paint.  I don’t miss it since I have been lightening my colors for spring.  Lots of gray, white and blue.

Every once in a while a piece demands to be painted black.  The other colors may work, but there is no substitute for black.

It was a bit tough to return to latex (vs. Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) but it was worth the extra effort.

I stripped, sanded and stained the top.  It had different wood grains throughout and makes it pretty cool.

I like to use original hardware whenever I can.  I sprayed these pulls with Oil Rubbed Bronze paint.

All 4 dovetailed drawers were washed inside with a blue paint.
