…and I want it painted black.
You may remember, from an earlier post, that I renovated a table and made it into a desk for my computer:
When I was planning the desk I tried to get some high gloss black paint. I couldn’t get what I wanted off the shelf so I had to have it made up, which meant I had to buy a 1 litre tin.
So now everything I paint has to be black (I feel an Henry Ford moment coming on).
When I bought a framed Paul Klee print it looked like this:
Now it looks like this:
I purloined a lovely mirror from some friends who had it stored in a barn. When I got it, it was dusty, dark brown, and in need of some repair. It now looks like this:
And I still had three quarters of a litre of black paint.
Recently I wanted to find a chair that I could use at my desk. I have been using a very nice M&S garden chair since we moved to Truro, but I wanted one that went with the desk.
So I looked around various places and found the perfect chair (perfect once it was painted black) in a charity warehouse.
Some people thought I should keep its original colour, but for me it had to be black, with a splash of colour:
I'm really pleased with it, but I haven't sat on it yet, I am waiting for the paint to harden.
So, if you want something painted black, I'm your man!
I still have two thirds of a litre left.
