Styling Ideas For Black Furniture.

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.

Latest Painting Project – Victorian Sideboard Painted Nearly Black.

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.

Latest Painting Project – When Wood Is Good.

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.
