Black and White - so right!

There's been a little paintin' and fixin' at the house recently
starting with a face lift
 for my decades-old Ethan Allan bookcases,
one of which I keep in the kitchen.
Changing the dark wood to black and white,
brought new life into these faithful stand-bys.
Now the furniture looks much better in the room.
It's not as bulky looking as before.

The colors are:
Sherwin Williams Tricorn Black and Panda White.
You can see the edges of the shelves were sanded back
and the white paint was antiqued with a brown glaze,
 then "fly specked".

I'm always thrilled with how paint magically changes things!
There's two more bookcases to do,
so it's back to work.
