I currently have a beautiful Victorian sideboard for sale painted Nearly Black (see previous post for more details) and it got me thinking how much I love painting with this colour.
Dark furniture can make such an impact in a room and really isn’t as daunting as you might think.
Here are a few inspirational images to show how amazing black furniture can look.
This sideboard isn’t just a sideboard, this is a thing of beauty.
It has gorgeous curved drawers, intricate carved features and plenty of storage for any room in your house.
I painted the exterior in Nearly Black chalk paint then covered with a coat of black wax and lightly distressed the paintwork.
The interior I painted using Belgian Stone chalk paint and clear wax.

When I find a vintage piece of furniture that is in great condition I simply leave the wood to shine.
This fabulous Victorian chest of drawers needed some attention to the body but the drawer fronts were in beautiful condition.
I mixed deep blue and black chalk paints to create a lovely inky blue which contrasts beautifully with the flame mahogany drawer fronts and brass drop handles.
Turned feet on original castors.
