I Think I'm Hooked On Painting Furniture!

I started with this dresser and it's partner. It was an old dresser set that was passed down to my husband when he was in college about 30 years ago. It needed some updating.I have been wanting to paint this set for a long time but I couldn't get my husband to see my vision. I painted it black and added new knobs. I love the way it turned out. I am looking for a some granite to put on the top so I can use this as a bar when we entertain. The other painted dresser is in my son's room.
I had some left over paint and I just had to see how this little table would look. Another old table that my mom and dad didn't want anymore...I'll take it...you can never have too many tables. lol

I'm loving this table already and I still have one more coat to go.

Still more paint left so why not paint this mitten box.
Do you like my Spiderman table cloth?
It's recycled from my son's birthday party about 4 years ago.
It makes painting more fun.
Tomorrow I will be looking for more pieces of furniture. LOL

Great job! I have an old "country" bench that I'm going to try and update with some black paint. I hope my looks as professional as yours.

Thanks for the much needed inspiration!
