Black Is The New White

Our Halloween mantel.
Black as pitch.

All thanks to Pinterest.  Never would have made this decision had we not seen this photo a while back.

ahhhhh, your mantle looks EVEN more Beautiful now.

did you have to do any prepping?
like priming or anything?
i know sometimes it still pays to prime
even if going over white.

Gorgeous!!!!! I'm jealous =)

no priming. Bought Lowes paint ...eggshell black....one of those primer/paint combos...still requires two coats and then spot painting...but it went on really nice and thick.
