Thrifting With A Headboard
One of the best places to find something like this is Habitat for Humanity.
Mix your paint really - really well. Begin painting your piece with the roller. Use your paint brush to get into crevices and details. Paint some of the areas with a lighter hand. Allow to completely dry.
Sand the areas where you lightly painted a little more aggressively than the rest of your piece. The goal is to reveal some of the original stain while the majority of the piece remains a rich opaque black.
In doing this, it's possible to sand to the bare wood. This is where we'll use our stain with a few Q-tips.
Allow the stain to sit for a few minutes before wiping off.
To get a rich black on black Pottery Barn Finish, black wax works amazing.
This is my inspiration for creating this post.
Wasn't this fun? I'll see what else I can put together using this paint technique!
