Black Furniture Paint

Think about the final design. Before you start painting your furniture black, ask yourself what you want the finished piece to look like. To you want it to be completely black? Or do you want to add some designs to it? Alternatively, do you want the piece to be a solid color with black designs painted onto it? Asking yourself these questions will help you decide how much paint you will need as well as what other supplies you will need to get (such as thin paint brushes for detailing or stencils). For example: For a weathered or antique look, paint your furniture a matte or semi-matte black, and then buff the corners with fine grit sandpaper. Keep in mind that anything underneath the paint will show through, depending on how much you sand. This includes primer, previous paint jobs, and the original surface of the furniture. Consider stenciling some designs onto your finished piece in a contrasting color, such as white, silver, or gold. Consider painting the entire piece a contrasting color first, and then adding black designs using stencils.

Hi Angie – If you want to paint the piece, not use black stain on it, you do not have to remove all the poly, but you do need to sand the surface to provide some “tooth” so the paint has something to adhere to. You mentioned the piece has a lot of poly on it. If this is so, when painted over…you may see all the imperfections in the level of the poly. I would sand it, not to the bare wood, but enough to smooth the surface down, then paint. If you want to use black stain, you will need to do the same and even more if there is a lot of poly on the piece. Newer pieces with a thin protective layer of poly over it are good candidates for the black stain, older pieces with layers of old poly or varnish are not. I think your best bet would be to sand the surface so it it smooth and then use primer, then paint or chalk paint.
