Still in the study...and something I never thought I'd ever say. "I painted something black"
But I did.
My old pine filing cabinet, which I've had for years and which has been helping hold up the desk in the study, had to be moved out while the room was being remodelled...and I thought it could do with a bit of a freshen up. So instead of painting it white or off white or beige, I bought myself a sample size can of a colour called Abyss. It's a Bristol shade and in some lights, it has a hint of a liquorice green tinge to it.
This is the best photo I could find of it in its original state.
I like it....never thought I'd hear myself say that, but I do. A lot.
It took about three top coats because I, stupidly, didn't get the undercoat tinted...and the white kept showing through
But I persevered and I think it turned out just fine.
I put some dark metal Ikea knobs on it and they help it disappear into the background...
