And now for the winner of the “Name This Lady” Giveaway. After reading through all the names, I’m naming my Concrete Planter Head “Alexandra”. It’s a great name that put a smile on my face AND I won’t forget it. My Dad’s name was Alex. My sisters’ name is Andrea. Mix them together and you get Alexandra. The funny thing is someone actually picked MY first name as well – Viola. Too bad we couldn’t mix all three…hehe. Again a BIG thanks to everyone who participated!

I love the look of the “80’s Buffet”. I have a 70’s buffet that I would like to paint black. I have a container of anchor chalk paint. I just finished painting a night stand with Silk Salt Water and am very pleased with the results 😊.
How did you achieve the lighter edges on the doors? I really like that look.
Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated.
Love your blog!
Hi Rita! That finish would look amazing on a 70’s buffet. I didn’t prime. I sanded between coats. Then using a q-tip, I stained the exposed/distressed corners. You can see the step-by-step tutorial here https://salvagedinspirations.com/diy-pottery-barn-knock-off/
Wow this couldn’t have come at a more perfect time! I am looking for just the right black paint for my buffet and hutch top. They will be separated in the end but still the same color. I had just decided on SW black magic…lol….now I’m unsure! Your stained and painted buffet is actually close to the look I’m going for. Mine has no issues and is in perfect shape, so do I stain it first? Will the stain stick to the glossy finish on my buffet? I’ve worked with GF Java gel stain before and sanded everything down to bare wood. Should I do the same here or will I be able to do this without sanding? Thank you for your post!
Hi Shirley! If you’re looking for an easy way to darken/modern your stain without sanding to bare wood have you ever thought of trying a Gel Stain? I have a full tutorial on How To Gel Stain Here (including a video) which may help you decide if you’d like to try it. I love using it. And yes, I would stain first, then paint. 🙂
These are beautiful. I especially love that mirror.
Thanks Lizzy! XOXO

You do such beautiful work, Denise! I’ve had so many jaw-dropping moments visiting your blog over the years. You are one of my favorite furniture painting artists. What a perfect name for your concrete head planter!
Aww, thanks my friend. Sending a HUUUUGE hug your way! 🤗
I love all the black & stained pieces, the black paint makes the stain pop & the stain makes the black paint pop.
Thanks Phyllis! I love doing it when the wood is in great shape because I think it’s a great combo as well!
Wow and wow! One better than the other! Awesome job.
Thanks Denise! XOXO
I think black painted furniture is the most underrated of all! It’s like the woman in the little black dress at a fancy party. I have a black painted vanity and mirror in my dressing closet, and a black painted farmhouse table by my kitchen for casual dining. I love them both! Thank you for highlighting black painted furniture, and I would love to see more of it as we go along…
Thanks Shelley and I totally agree. Adding a black piece to a room grounds all the other pieces so it makes for beautiful decor, doesn’t it? Have a super day. x

Loved all the black painted furniture.
Thanks Linda! 🙂

I have been using Fusion mineral paint and even after curing time I find the black east smudges.
Just wondering on an alternative as I tested chalk paint which does the same
Hi Ellie! Can I ask what you mean by smudges?
Kathy from Jax says
I love the oldies you post. Being fairly new to your blog, I get to catch up on your beautiful projects. I think the vanity is my favorite. But, of course, I love them all. Take care. See you Thursday.
Thanks, Kathy… see you Thursday!🤗
Denise, you are one of the most creative, artistic, fresh-idea people I’ve ever known. Your creativity and ability to see unique uses, finishes and adaptations of furniture and home decor are remarkable. . I love your posts because you’re always introducing something different; be it a look, technique or alternate use for whatever you’re transforming; and your willingness to share your ideas is so generous. Your ability to cross styles and different techniques and colors is the mark of a true artist. You seem to be able to see into the “soul” of whatever you’re working on; very inspirational for a lover of all things old and beginner furniture “refinisher” like me!
This is super sweet Maureen… thank you for all your kindness! It’s such a fun business not to mention good for the environment/upcycling so I’m wishing you all the best and hope to see you here again soon. 🙂
Hi Denise. I LOVE all these black painted furniture makeovers. Thank you for sharing. Even though it wasn’t my entry, I think Alexandra is the perfect name for your beautiful concrete planter.
Aw, thanks, Monique! I really like Alexandra too!💙
