I go with a black color scheme in most of my apartment, highlighted by teal and other moderately bright colors. I didn’t snap a before photo of the nightstand, but the dresser (pictured above) is the same, dull wooden color. A couple layers of primer and black paint and the nightstand was transformed! I was finally able to hang the black and white landscape photo and my grandmother’s candles no longer looked out of place.
Next, the dresser. But first, reupholstering the kitchen chairs!
