Black Walls

I've been admiring black walls for a while (just check my Pinterest boards).  Whether it's one wall, an entire room, a wall lined with black bookcases or even a simple display area, I love it!  The deep, bold color makes a room feel so cozy and intimate...

While I don't think I'm daring enough (yet) to paint an entire room black, I am beginning a small project that includes a gallon (or more) of black paint...... Benjamin Moore's Black Beauty.

Black Paint

I've used this same paint color here on my back door, but this time I'll be painting the inside of my hall closet....

Hallway

The hall closet is actually our coat closet which is a bit odd since it isn't anywhere near the front (or back) door.  The closet is tucked between my son's bedroom, the master bedroom and the laundry room.... you might remember the hallway from here with the pink chevron chair (the chair has been moved, but the painting is still on the wall).

Hallway

I open this closet a few times a day and I think it's about time to make a change, a bold change..... wouldn't you say?

Coat Closet

So, this week I'll be making a few updates to the closet, beginning with painting the walls black and ending with some organization.  My hope is to finish painting this weekend (in between going to the local rodeo where I'll be wearing my old boots!) and show you the after pictures next week!

What are your big weekend plans?  Any fun painting projects?

  2. a good primer should take care of that, maybe just a extra coat! Send pics if you go through with it.... I'd love to see :)

  3. How exciting! I was really close to panting my dining room black. With the low level of light in the house, I decided to go with a much lighter color. I still enjoy a nicely done black room.

    I think I will be doing some room in the house a deep navy blue, though. Can't wait to see how your blackwalls turn out:)

  4. Nice post. I learn something more challenging on different blogs everyday. It will always be stimulating to read content from other writers and practice a little something from their store. I’d prefer to use some with the content on my blog whether you don’t mind. Natually I’ll give you a link on your web blog. Thanks for sharing.

  5. There are some interesting points in time in this article but I don’t know if I see all of them center to heart. There is some validity but I will take hold opinion until I look into it further. Good article, thanks and we want more! Added to FeedBurner as well Visit Site Visit Site Visit Site
