A darker side

I realize that most people paint furniture to lighten up a dark wood finish. However, sometimes a piece just looks better with a painted darker color. For instance, check out some fantastic examples of darker pieces below:

 Love this idea! The drawers are left natural wood finish and stenciled. (Miss Mustard Seed)

This dark grayish blue color is a great update for the piece. Also, check out the fresh new knobs. (Oliver & Rust)

 Excellent paint job...looks like it was lightly painted and distressed so the natural wood peeks through. (Carters Cottage Interiors)
