Honey Mustard

Honey mustard, that's what my husband says our nightstands remind him of.  He says it's a good thing, so I'll take that as a compliment. ;)  For the rest of the furniture I decided to skip the honey mustard and go for a nice black finish.  Here is the paint I used in a semi-gloss finish.  I have used this paint before and had good luck with it so I tried it again.  Painting furniture black is always tricky to me.  It seems you can see every brush stroke.  You would think it would hide more, but for me definitely not.  So, I used a foam roller to apply and a brush for the areas that the roller would not work on.

Here is a reminder of the "before"...




and here is the after, the lighting is awful but it's 4:45 and it's already dark and I couldn't leave you hanging any longer!





and we decided to keep the original hardware, it just seemed to suit it perfectly.  My husband spruced it up first with a little Brasso (he's a sweetie and he's really good at cleaning, I'm a lucky girl)



Did my mention my husband and I moved this up the stairs from the garage by ourselves?  I woke up this morning regretting that for sure!

May I ask -- did you sand or apply a primer before painting? It really turned out beautiful, and I would like to try to same paint on a dining hutch -- didn't know if this paint required priming. You really have some great design ideas!

I wanted to let you know that I've signed up to follow your blog and would LOVE LOVE LOVE for you to visit my blog and maybe follow me too! What do you think? I also have a party every Tuesday -- The Boardwalk Bragfest. I see a lot of project that I would consider brag-worthy!

Jan, I did prime it before I painted it just to ensure that the paint would adhere to the surface. It probably depends on the surface that you are painting, but I always prime just to be sure.

I LOVE your bed!! Where is it from? if you don't mind me asking!! I love this room, might have to snag a few of your ideas!!

Can you tell me step by step how you painted this?

Bethany DeVore said...

I just sanded everything down and cleaned it really well. Then, I primed everything with Zinsser primer. I used a foam roller for all the large portions and a brush to get to the smaller details. Then I used semi gloss black paint using a roller/brush.
