It seems that painting furniture is all the rage right now, at least on Pinterest. While I’ll admit that adding a pop of color to a room with painted furniture is fun, my personal tastes run towards a more subdued look.
Black furniture can cross that bridge – give a room some needed oomph yet not pull the eye to one spot as a bright color can. But have you ever used black paint? It can be tricky. Trust me. A few years back I painted an entire stair railing, moldings and baseboards for a client. Tricky.
