I woke up this morning, the primer was dry, the light coming in was bright, a perfect day to finish up my black book/display/room divider project. Coat one.
I bought flat paint, but it was very shiny when wet. I wasn't scared a bit.
It only took two coats which is amazing for black paint, but I had used a tinted primer and I think that made a huge difference.
Of course by now it is night time and there are a lot of shadows in the house. It makes doing this job justice in photographs difficult. But honestly, I couldn't wait until tomorrow to share.
I love that the black draws your attention to a few of my favorite things. Breck and I bought this bowl on our fall cruise in Canada. And the geodes on the bottom shelf are from a Father's Day trip to the museum a few years back. It was the last time the boys were both here to celebrate with us.
I also have this beautiful box and turned bowl that my father-in-law crafted for us. Again, the lighting and the fact I don't use a flash means these photos are not the best.
You can see, though, that the paint did in fact dry flat. Love it. I also love the shopping trip Breck and I made to town today. We made some fun purchases that I'll share with you tomorrow.
