I heart black...

A new painted piece for Sisters'...an auction piece, not very pretty, but well worthy of the new vision a coat of paint will do...

These marginal pieces from the 30's and 40's, were cheap, affordable pieces that were sold out of catalogs and furniture stores thoughout the depression era...they were popular for the middle class people and I don't know about you, but our family always had second hand 'waterfall' furniture.

Beautiful wood veneers graced many of the more expensive pieces, bedroom sets, dining room sets, all from a modern era that replaced high Victorian styles...now you were hip!

However, today the pieces are shunned, unless all decked out in a new coat of paint and black was the perfect choice for this china cabinet and aren't we glad that imperfections make a piece, as we Americans tighten our belts and reuse and repurpose...ahhh, the life of a junk dealer...paradise!

I'm always amazed when I think that years ago, we would try to hide the imperfections of our old hand-me-down furniture with a quick coat of paint and now we like the distressed look and it has the name of shabby chic.
I do love the black too!

Love it, and the fact that the inside was not painted black. It would have made it so dark..I will have to remember this on our next paint job! Black is selling well for us, maybe more than the white. Hope the Asylum isn't driving you nuts! heehee

Love the black paint on this piece. It's so fulfilling to put a new finish on an ugly old piece & see it change before your very eyes. Good job!!!! Jan

Looks good! It'll probably sell before you get a chance to display on the shelves... Quilts or tablecloths would looks good folded up and stashed down below.

Black paint gives even the humblest piece a coat of arms!

My first thought, on seeing it, was "Ooh, pretty!" Someday, someday, I'm going to come through Iowa and stop by your place.
