That's right...a little black paint never hurt anything! In fact, I think that it is safe to say, a little black paint helps everything! Example...
Here is the hutch that is in my dining area of my kitchen. I love it. It has a whitewash on the simple pine wood.
It has served me well...but the dishes kinda get lost in the hutch, so I needed to change that.
So, on a whim, I painted it black! Now all you experts out there cover your ears for a moment...
I didn't dust, clean, strip, sand or anything before I slapped the paint on!!!! And, it still worked!
My girlfriend asked if I was going to leave the inside natural while I was painting the hutch...hadn't thought about it until that moment, and so I went with her idea, and I love it.
Even though the back of the hutch is still natural, I think that the plates and such still look great!
So, now on to painting the table and chairs...I will keep you posted! And, don't be afraid to paint something with a little bit of black paint!
Oh, and by the way, the little cream sample on the wall to the left of the hutch is the color of the wainscoting that I hope to put up soon! :)
