Sometimes I find myself looking at something that I own over and over again knowing that there's just something that I don't like about it. I bought this little chest years ago.
It's not really well made. It's more of a decorative piece than a sturdy piece of furniture. Anyways, something just didn't quite click with me any more. I figured that it was the swirly "leather looking" brown areas. I figured that since I've painted just about everything else I own black, I'll just change that as well. Out came my painters tape so that I didn't get any paint on the actual leather straps. Next, I pulled out my handy dandy black paint.
