Here’s a detail from Kim’s bedroom that I shared a few weeks ago…

Lovely black accents at risulinna’s dining room stand out. Oh, and I would kill for those chairs – brilliant! Also, she has a blog here.

Here’s one from simplyvonne. Also, her blog is here.

Here’s a lovely entry from uydurrrukcu. Blog is here.


This paint job at xojy’s house includes a Venetian plaster finish. I love the shine on it. Sometimes black paint can really highlight flaws in a wall that you don’t want to highlight – Venetian plaster is a great way to fix this.

A Black Clawfoot Tub, Ali’s Before and After


Posted by Ali | View all posts by Ali

My boyfriend might kick me in the shins for posting this, but I have to share our most recent bathroom before and after project. We have a very very small bathroom with an old old clawfoot tub. I love the vintage look of our tub but without a doubt it needed a little tlc. So, we patched some holes and brought out the black paint…

Here is the before:

The after!

Amazing the difference a little dab of black paint can make. She’s a beauty again!
