Black painted furniture has a classic look that adds warmth and character to any style decor.
“Every room needs a touch of black, just as it needs at least one antique piece.” Jan Showers
Over the years I have found there are two groups of people when it comes to black painted furniture.
Those who love it, and those who dislike it tremendously.
Which team are you a member of?
I am all about it. If you love it too, then I don’t need to do any further convincing.
Let’s just give each other a high five! Woo hoo #teamblackpaintedfurniture
If you are on the fence or really couldn’t imagine a beautiful chair, dresser, desk, or buffet painted black, then hold on, maybe I can change your mind.
If you still aren’t feeling the love for black painted furniture by the end of this post, it’s okay, we can still be friends.
I could write all sorts of flowery words about why you should love this dark and mysterious color, but I think you might best be convinced after you have seen these beautiful pieces done by a few of my talented furniture painting friends.

This desk makeover is about more than just a fresh coat of paint, it’s also a brilliant tutorial on how to save a leather top.

This piece is the equivalent of a painted furniture mic drop!
This buffet wears black quite well don’t you think?
This media console proves the Balayage technique is not just for hair.
A paper shopping bag was used to add a bit of vintage charm to this little accent table.
And here’s how I created a vintage finish for this Windsor style chair.
If only I had 3 more just like it.
As you were swooning over all these lovely makeovers did you happen to notice how the black finish looked different yet amazing on every style of furniture?
It can look sleek and modern or authentically vintage.
