Paint Your Furniture in Black Lacquer for Instant Italian Chic

I was lucky to spend time in a gorgeous hotel in Italy this summer, and they had black lacquered furniture everywhere. Mi piace! Bold, slick and stylish. An interior designer once told me that every room should have something black in it—maybe Italy’s where she learned that lesson. Jill tackled a beat-up blond wicker side table at her house with a few coats of high-gloss black spray paint, and sure enough, it was transformed into Italian chic!

DIY Black lacquer

If you try it at home, just remember to sand and prime first to prepare the surface, then apply the paint in light coats—you may have to do several—to get full coverage without any drips.

This will always be my favorite picture of my mom, because it displays the sheer joy in her face as she reaches for her favorite present-- a roll of twenties. Happy Mother's Day, Terri. You really are the best! ❤️❤️❤️ (And Happy Mother's Day to anyone else reading this, if it applies. And if it doesn't, have a fabulous Sunday!)
