I am back from my mini blogging break! It was nice to just be home and spend time with my family and be off of social media.
I found this great dresser/buffet on CL and it had beautiful bones and potential, but was in need of some TLC.Before:
It was missing some veneer on the top and a few pieces near the bottom. I have never painted a piece of furniture black, but for some reason this piece told me it needed to be black. I had ordered Typewriter by Miss Mustard Seed awhile back and decided to use this color milk paint on this piece. I thought the black and chippy might disguise some of the veneer issues since I wasn't about to remove it all.
I painted the buffet/dresser with 2 coats of the milk paint and let the chippy magic happen.
I sealed it with tung oil and it made the matte black rich, dark and moody like I wanted.
The top is the milk paint without oil and the bottom has the oil added-big difference!

I am so glad I went with black on this piece!
