Almost every lady I know has a favorite “LBD” that she knows she can rely on for being very versatile and ready to step up to use for multiple and various occasions. My personal fav is similar to this one from Macy’s.

Little Black Dress

It can go from super casual to “listen to me roar” meeting appropriate to a dining dazzler with just a quick change of shoes and accessories in the blink of an eye.

 The same can be said from a piece of black painted furniture. Similarly versatile, they can be the star of a room, the perfect companion to compliment a collection of your treasured finds, or a functional piece for everyday use.

The perfect, true black for that LBP (little black piece)

This chest on tall legs is a perfect style to paint black. It was up cycled by Vintage Street Designs. It would be the ideal home to display the collection of the collection of crystal vases that once belonged to your grandmother, to pair with a mirror in your entry way or as a base for your television.

A hutch painted Beckley Coal can add needed cabinet space to store you daily use dinnerware, become a beverage service area or act as a great seasonal décor space if you do not have a fireplace mantle that you can change out with the holidays.   Dear Olympia’s customer, Bobbi, transformed this dated drab wood buffet into a bar with a coat of paint and the simple addition of some metal holders to store wine bottles and stem wear.

Sideboards are always versatile pieces of furniture. They can be put to use as a kitchen island, made into a charging station for all of your portable electronics or become your bathroom vanity with the addition of a sink and faucet. They can even be used as a traditional sideboard!  Fresh, a CeCe Caldwell’s Paints Retailer in Jasper, Texas gave this former oak sideboard new life.
