Black Can Look Dramatic & Stunning

This is another vintage desk I refinished. I stripped, sanded, then painted this in flat black and softly sanded away to accent it. Black makes a statement, doesn't it?

It's fun to create displays - the turned wood pen was a Christmas gift from my eldest son. He turned it, my sweet dil did the intricate sanding and I get to use it! I loved using it in this photo. You can click on the photo to see my pen up close.

I always love a splash of black in most rooms. The desk is lovely. Thanks, also, for the tip of the painting roses book. I'll have to check that out.

WOW! This is gorgeous! I have an old desk I could try this out on, but I'm sure doing this is not as easy as it looks. You did a wonderful job!
