Day of painting

I have been thinking of painting my bedroom furniture for a while, since before I wrote this post.  Last night I bought a quart $8 can of black paint and got started.

Here is what the bed looked like BEFORE:
The bedroom was green when we first moved in last year, then I painted it gray this year.

Here is the AFTER picture:

As well as painting the bed and tables I painted this chest we have the TV on.

It is a change from my usual paint everything white, but I love it, it is like having brand new furniture.

The paint I used was Valspar latex enamel satin from Lowes
