Pippa's nursery has like 5000 different types of wood in it, so I thought I'd paint over her change table to remove one shade of wood. Nothing was wrong with it (other than some scratches I'd inflicted), it is a great hand-me-down from Rick & Amanda - thanks guys!
I don't really have a great 'before' photo, but here we are after Adrian had just started to take it apart.
We got ourselves to a fancy (read: $$$) paint store, and we bought us some super fancy primer.
Yaddah yaddah...two coats of black later, and TA DA!
A word about "black". We told the man at the store we wanted shiny black. He said, "I have lots of different blacks, just like you can choose different whites, pick a colour for me." I went to the paint colour selection area and LAUGHED because all the blacks were the same. I chose 'Jet Black' on a whim.
Joke's on me. It is totally very dark gray, not actually black. Drives me a little insane every time I see it. Gray does not work in this room. I wanted BLACK. We even have another can of paint (different kinda fancy paint, I have a project in mind to justify it, stay tuned) of DARK GRAY which I deemed entirely unsuitable for this project. True, this is much darker, but still.... #firstworldproblems.
