Hello beautiful friends! Today, I’ve got 10 black painted furniture ideas to share with you! Y’all know how much I adore all things white, but I love the stark contrast of a beautifully painted piece of black furniture almost equally as well!
I’ve rifled through my archives to bring you these 10 beauties!
Well, they’re not beauties quite yet, but they will be!! Most of these were painted in Dixie Belle’s Caviar and sealed with Clear Coat in Satin. I’ve included links to each makeover at the end of each one if you want to see even more details! Enjoy!
Black Painted Furniture Ideas
Up first is this secretary desk I picked up for $34 at the thrift store:
Dixie Belle’s Caviar and a fun stencil to the rescue!
Of course, the insides got a redo too!
And a peek at the cute drawer…
I really had fun reimagining this one! My MIL ended up buying it the day after I dropped it off at my booth!
At the number two spot is this lone chair I picked up at a yard sale for $10:
It was plain and simple, but I always consider chairs when I see them since I often need them as mates to desks, etc.
Caviar and stencils also rescued this cutie:
I love the contrast of the white against the black, so I like to embellish black painted pieces this way…
Up next is another chair makeover:
But also, a table makeover as well:
I found the chair for $15 and the table for $28, both at thrift stores. I had redone the table first which you can see HERE, but it sat in my booth for over a year, so I brought it home and gave it a second makeover, mating it with this chair:
As you can see I removed the heavy sides of the table. (I linked to what I did with those leaves that I removed at the end!!)
I decided to add a transfer to the top:
At number four is another fun one I really enjoyed working on, this neglected oak night table I paid $12 for:
It was pretty nasty to begin with, but I got it all cleaned up and made it feel loved again!
It’s partly white, but the black on it really makes it! And look how cute those drawers are now!!
Giving a little love to the drawers is a fantastic way to really customize a piece!
And y’all loved the knobs on this one:
This next one is one of my all-time favorite black makeovers that I’ve done. I was gifted this dresser by a lovely lady who had several pieces she could no longer store that had been in her family for years:
I felt blessed to be able to bring several of her pieces back to life. Here is how this one turned out:
What a stunner!
The drawers got some love as well, of course!
After painting that gorgeous dresser, I challenged myself to bring similar sophistication and elegance to this much more simple, unfinished cabinet:
I don’t think I did too badly!
Simple, but sophisticated.
The small drawers got the stripe treatment too…
This next one is another favorite, probably because it started out in such disrepair:
A lot of TLC and Caviar worked miracles here too!
Okay, and some pretty staging doesn’t hurt!
The mirror, basket, wire basket, small dish, and pitcher are all thrift store finds!
At number eight is this pretty dressing table I picked up and redid many many years ago:
I found it at an estate sale for only $20.
It lived in our bedroom for years, but when we moved a few years ago there was no room for it, so I refreshed it to put in my booth:
This one got some stripe action on the sides. Stripes are the easiest way to add a little whimsy to a piece of furniture:
I was drawn to this next piece as soon as I spied it at the thrift store. I paid $35 for it:
I chose black for this one probably because of all the red tones in it.
The original plan was a big FAIL! However, I regrouped and came up with plan B:
Again, the white against the black is one of my favorite looks!
And finally, this awkwardly tall hutch that I shared recently rounds out this group. It was free-to-me as payment for painting this secretary for my sister’s MIL:
She never knew she could be so elegant!
I shared a 30 second video reel on the making of this one on Instagram if you missed it:

And how about a bonus makeover?? This one isn’t furniture, but a black painted beauty none the less!
This flatware box was a $5 thrift store find:
It’s a long way from where it started!
This one got a look to match the secretary desk I shared first:
And that’s 10 Black painted furniture ideas!
Do you have a favorite?? Although I’m taking a short break from creating to get Jack ready to go back to college, I’m still checking in, so I’d love to hear from you!
