Built-In Cabinet Painted Black!

After months of debating whether or not to paint our built-in cabinet in the basement, we finally decided to go for it. I almost did it a few months ago, but it felt like a big risk. I mean, painting cabinets is a tad bit more involved than painting a wall. There’s sanding involved, spraying, all the things. It’s a process. But it’s finally happened and I’m so excited to show you how it looks! Here it was before:

I’ve loved this cabinet white for almost three years now. But it was time for a change. Here’s how it looks in black:

Such a huge change, right?! I love it so much. It really helps ground the room and creates such a focal piece. The color is Tricorn Black by Sherwin Willams. Area rug is HERE.

We also switched out the black sconces that were on this cabinet for these brass ones. I love the combo of black and brass!

So so happy with how this project turned out. Now I want to go paint more things black–haha! Let me know what you think. xo

      I thought about that, but I kinda like the dark knobs actually!

    Sorry, but all I can think about this is “gloom and doom”! It is way too much black for me. I am glad you are happy with it!
