7 Things to Paint Black Today
There’s a reason black is a classic: it’s dark, it’s beautiful, it matches with almost everything. And it’s a great way to add a little contrast, drama and depth to an interior that needs a little extra pizazz. Here are seven weekend painting projects that will add a little bit of black — and a whole lot of style — to your home.
1. Your Stairs.
For a dramatic entryway, paint just the railing, or just the stairs, or both for a little extra impact like the one shown here by @kersaintcobb.
2. Your Doors
Add instant class to any space, without the trouble of painting a whole room.
3. Your Bathtub
If you have an old cast iron tub, painting the outside is a great way to refresh your bathroom without remodeling.
4. Your Kitchen Cabinets
Try just the upper cabinets, just the lower cabinets (the two-tone look is in) or go for broke and paint them all.
5. Your Fireplace
Give the focal point of your living room a little extra oomph.
6. Your Ceiling
Painting your ceiling black is a bold choice that can make a large room seem cozier, and will make any room much more dramatic.
7. Your Bookcase
If you love your bookcases, painting them black like the one shown here by @proglopaints is a great way to set them off — and draw attention to all those lovely volumes.
