home improvement

Last year I bought this little stand from some antique dealers in St. Louis. It lives by my door and is a catch-all where I put my keys and wallet. The black doesn't go with any of the dark woods in my humble abode, so I finally decided to paint it. The color advertised, "Down Pipe", was supposed to be a dark slate gray-blue.


After. Much lighter than I thought, but I like it alot. I let some of the black peep through for a "weathered" look. I don't think painting is really my strong suit.
