Need to remember this!! Tired, battered furniture suddenly seems hip and edgy with a coat of matte black (gloss finishes, on the other hand, draw attention to any small imperfections, such as chips and nicks). We like Benjamin Moore's Ben Waterborne Interior Paint, which is a low-VOC, 100-percent acrylic latex (ideal for painting furniture) in a flat finish in Universal Black.
(I just like this black dresser with mirror) How to Paint Wooden Furniture - pinning this because I used all her tips to paint a bookcase and entertainment center. I was so afraid of stains...but was afraid painting my furniture might ruin it too. If you follow these steps you won't ruin your furniture and my favorite part - you will still see the wood grain!
