Black Beauty

This piece came from a loving father who had it handmade in Indonesia for his precious little girl.  I knew I had to make it beautiful.  I used Lamp Black Milk Paint which gave it that deep black color I was looking for.  Next I used Georgian Cherry Gel Stain for the top which paired perfectly with the black Milk Paint.  Finally to top off the paint, I used High Performance Top Coat in Satin for protection as well as the perfect amount of shine.  For some finishing touches, I finished the drawers with beautiful paper drawer liners and recovered the chair in a complimentary fabric.  Simple and classic is what this piece deserved.
