A little black painting frenzy!

Fall is such a gorgeous time of year to be outside painting! I'm taking full advantage and trying to finish up all the random bits and pieces in my garage. I'm also using up all those half empty cans of paint before it gets really cold. Well as you can see, I had some black paint on hand and went on a little black painting frenzy!
 
 Have you ever walked around with a wet paint brush pondering ..... 
hmmm, what else can I paint with this color?
 
A cute little Windsor rocker perhaps?
 

Or maybe a couple of accent shelves?


An awesome captain's desk chair?
This one is silky smooth  with a dark wax finish!


I had a shelf just like this one at our last sale. It was painted in a cottage green and sold in a snap. Hopefully this one will find a happy home too. Can't you just picture it decorated for Christmas? Perfect for hanging stockings!



And this little piece is so versatile!
It would make a sophisticated little vanity.


Or a great little accent table in a foyer!
Don't you love those curves?

 
And paired with a chair, it would make a darling little desk!


So there you go, I finished up six little pieces and used up all my black paint!
 
Winter's coming and I'm making progress!

I'm sharing with ...

I love these pieces! And they all look great in black. I was looking for a small, dainty desk just like yours not too long ago to use as a vanity, beautifully done!

Kim said...

These all look great black. I really like the little curvy desk.

I had to chuckle at your question...Why, yes! I do wander/look around and start painting anything within range... Often that is how I end up with my favorite makeovers/projects.... Looking at your post, the same must be true for you... Lovely pieces....

Way to go Sharon! Black is such a grounding color for any room and who doesn't love a black piece of furniture? Love all of your pieces but I think the rocking chair is my fav!
Have a great weekend!

I love a piece (or three) of black furniture in my rooms. Sometimes black just says it best! :) I especially like it on spindles, and I'm in love with your versatile little table.

Danielle @thepaintedwillows said...

I'm loving all the black! Your making me want to go paint something black too :) I especially like the curvy accent table!

Hetty said...

Great idea to paint it black.

Oh no....cold weather is coming, isn't it? Love all of the black pieces....you can never go wrong with an accent of black in a room!

Leslie Harris said...

Thanks Sharon you just helped me decide what colt to paint my buffer. Black is so classic. Also isegan getting baby Clare a Halloween costume? I think Michael was 8 months when I dressed him like Winnie the Pooh. :)

Black paint seems to work on so many pieces, as you have shown us. My mother used to say that "every room needs a little black" and I think she was right. I have a vintage dressing table similar to the one you painted black...I may copy your "paint it black" idea...also like the idea of using it as a hall table.
Have a great week!
