Hi Peeps! The latest and greatest - black and gold. This cute pair of retro cuties virtually fell into my lap. The furniture findings have hit a bit of a dry patch of late round these parts, so I was very happy when a kind soul donated these guys to me.
I virtually never paint in black, but I was inspired by a picture I came across whilst perusing painted furniture on google which was black with gold hardware. Why not? I thought. I could use a shake up.
I gave everything a nice sand and cleaned the pieces both down. I had some Ben Moore Advance in a slate-black colour that I decided to turn into chalk paint. It turned out great and the adhesion is awesome.
The hardware got the ol' rub-n-buff treatment to spruce it up a bit. I initially thought about changing the hardware, but it really does have a cute retro feel, and plus, I was feeling a little lazy to fill in all those holes. ;)
Keeping with the retro theme, I highlighted the recessed lines in the middle panel with cream, and I also painted one thin cream stripe down each of the front legs.
The matching tallboy got the exact same treatment. A cute little pair they make!
