Crusty, Black Goodness













via




In general, I'm not a particularly huge fan of distressed white furniture, but oh these crusty and aged black pieces...

Mmm hmm.

  7. I especially love them in all-white rooms, like the bathroom above. They have a large presence and sense of history which I adore. Thanks for the comment yesterday! I am glad to have made a new friend.

  8. Not sure if you remember but I painted Grandpa Russel's world war II trunk black and painted the hinges gold but it was certainly crusty. I didn't have a spot for it so someone else has it now. But I do like the look!

  9. I am SO with you! I have already pinned many of these. Thinking if the dark wood in my bath doesn't work out I could do some black paint and distressing!
