My black entertainment center has bothered me since day 1 because it made my family room feel claustrophobic...like a big black hole on the wall :( So for Christmas my sweet hubby bought me Annie Sloan Duck Egg chalk paint and we set about to paint this big piece!
It turned out better than what I hoped for... I love it!
There were so many pieces to this entertainment center! It took about 15 hours!
Inside, outside, top and bottom of every shelf and then once the paint was on every square inch it was time to wax.
We waxed it all
Totally worth every minute of effort! Then notice the black coffee table... Yep I decided to paint that too!
I actually painted it Paris grey first but I did not like how it looked against the duck egg blue... It looked purple :(
So I painted it with Annie Sloan Pure White and roughed it up a little with some sand paper and then waxed it.
What a huge difference some paint makes! I love love love how this room looks now :)
