This is officially my first post on my new website. I’m starting with a gun case make-over. Some of you might think that I am crazy for painting over real hardwood but I love the result. Since moving into our new home, in 2013, I wanted it to match and not stand out. Most of the house is white or a very light khaki color. Now that it is black, it is more of an accent and looks perfectly in our living room.
Originally, I used the “charcoal” Martha Stewart chalk paint from Michael’s and in the pictures above it looks really gray because of the bright sunlight coming in through the window. My husband didn’t like it so I went with black paint instead to make it look more manly. I think it looks nicely at the corner of our sunlit living room!
