I just started a new Pinterest board this week called “And I Want to Paint It Black,” and it has nothing to do with The Rolling Stones. Adding a dash of black accents always makes a space look more sophisticated.
If your room looks too light and sweet, a few black accents make the room feel more grounded, more grown up. It also covers up a multitude of orangey wood furniture!
Have you ever considered painting the backs of your bookcase black? Just see how great it looks:
Paint a dated light fixture black, and there may be no need to replace it after all! Unite a photo grouping (like I did in this post) with a simple can of black spray paint. Paint a mismatched chair black, and now it seems to belong after all. Need I go on?
Of course, I also love it on interior doors (see this post) and even on window trim (interior or exterior).
Come follow me on Pinterest to see what other things I want to paint black! What would you paint black?
