A little black....

You may have noticed I don't usually paint something black, only on request!!  
I was reminded why I am not a huge fan of black on this piece!  
Now I do love the outcome of black, it is just getting there that seems to be my problem.

I am way too much of a perfectionist when painting and with black it shows EVERYTHING.  So as you can imagine I sanded and repainted this piece several times to get it just right.  However I did learn a little trick, if you are using latex paint try waxing instead of a clear coat, it shows less and is a little more forgiving!!

But my customer was very happy with this piece and so all the hard work was worth it!
