I think I have painted more pieces black in the last two months than I have the history of my furniture painting. Maybe it's the time of year, I don't know. It seems that every other piece I do is just begging for an elegant coat of black. This Queen Anne buffet was one of my favorites. She started off in a cracking, drippy, brownish green paint. Sorry, no before pics. Some of the original hardware was missing so I replaced them with large glass knobs from Hobby Lobby. She truly is an elegant lady!
