Leave it or Paint it black?

I have this armoire that my mom made out of old doors, I am dyinggggggggg to paint it black. Am I nuts?



I like it like this but everything is black, and I am just not sure what to do.




What do you think? Should I have something other than black in my living room? It will eventually be in the bedroom, which yes there is black too.

It's already awesome! But it would look very classy painted black!

I would go for a deep chocolate brown rather than black, but I would not leave it as it is. :)

My sister think we are all nuts for painting everything black. I kinda like it the way it is. It has such a rustic beautiful look. It would also look great a dark brown or black. It looks a little to stark for the color scheme of the room it is in.
Good luck with your decision.

I love black painted furniture but keeping the dust down is a problem.

Fabulous idea to make an armoire from old doors though. Love the piece!

I was going to say paint in a dark red, but I see that's your wall color. Paint it black, I love the choc brown idea but would it stick out too much with all of your black stuff?
But them again what do I know, either way I LOVE IT.

Great furniture finds! And freecycle.com? To give you some different ideas for colors. Go and check out Caroumal Colors, don't know if I got that right, but you can get there from a link at a Soft Place to Land. Lots of ideas, than just black. Jackie
