Furniture Painting





On top of everything else lately I have been painting. In our previous home this bureau was in my bedroom but here it seems better suited for the linens in the dining room.  The color of the dinning room is golden mustard and the black furniture goes really well with it.  The bureau fit perfectly between 2 matching shelves only problem was the color because it was wood.  So on went the primer and then 3 coats of black paint.   I changed most of the knobs to a white knob with the initial of our last name it looks great against the wall. I apologize the picture isn't greatI couldn't get a very good shot. Now all I need is 4 more matching knobs a couple of lamps and oh yes a table and chairs for the dining room.
For a little while longer it will remain a painting furniture room because it's too cold to paint furniture in the basement.  I have one more piece to paint a night stand for the older girl's room.  That tiny white drawer in the third picture actually goes to the night stand.  Hope to get that done soon between everything else.

Wow, what a fabulous looking cabinet! Nothing like an "extreme makeover" to turn something mundane into something awesome. Great job Luisa!
