Paint it black




Just a couple of quick pics of our living room today.
I have been slow to figure out where I want to go
with the décor this Halloween, but I think I've got it now :)






The other day I got myself a bucket of black paint.
The only project I had in mind was this gaudy mirror my parents
gave us a while back (above), that matches nothing we have.

After it was made partly black (it used to be brownish gray)
I was looking around the house in search for more things
that needed to be black, and I realized - it all does!

The shelving, the night stand, the dressers, the stairs,
the floors, the walls..! Especially the upstairs-slash-bedroom
is in dire need of a gothic make-over.






While I pondered this though, I painted a couple of items
for my other living room Halloween displays,
and I will be back with more pictures shortly!

How is your decorating coming along?

  2. The revised version of the mirror looks great, Ms. Misantropia! I bet you run out OF paint before you run out of things TO paint. LOL

    My decorating is coming along well - Thursday is my deadline. Why? It's a seeee-cret. Shhhhh. ;)

    1. Oooo, seeeecrets-ssss... :) Looking forward to finding out!

      Yes, if I take on one of the dressers the paint will run out quickly. So far only small projects.

  6. You gave me a major earworm of Paint it black by the Rolling Stones... But you are right, many things profit from painting them black, I assume that the mirror looks much more classy now!

    1. "Earworm", that's hilarious! We just say a tune has stuck on the brain.

  7. Åh! Vad fint du har gjort! Precis i min smak 😊. Vi målade vårt lilla vardagsrum/tvrum svart o tycker att det är väldigt mysigt. Men man får tänka till lite innan man möblerar o dekorerar ett svart rum. Svarta detaljer försvinner väldigt lätt så jag möblerar med vita möbler och gulddetaljer.

    1. Jag vet inte, jag tycker att svart på svart är så himla snyggt! Men jag kan inte behålla något så, det blir lila överallt efetr ett tag...

  8. Det ser jättefint ut, vilken snygg spegel!!!
    Jag har också pyntat en del inför Halloween & Samhain,
    men i mitt hem är det numera pastellfärger som gäller,
    men det funkar faktiskt det också ;)

  10. What a great makeover, misantropia! I´m happy to see you made such a good job with the seasonal decoration, really classical spooky (my favourite!).

    My decoration is not progressing at all this year except for the little lantern I keep in the living room all through the year. I think that I am feeling so lazy because this time I won´t be at home for Halloween, and that makes me a bit sad.

    1. Thank you very much!

      We aren't hosting our annual Halloween kids' party this year, so I know exactly what you mean. But I am decorating for myself and my man, and secretly hoping a Halloween party will magically appear :)

    1. Thank you! I get the painting bug every few years, though I'm not sure how much time I have this time.

    1. Haha, you're the second one to write that - and I had it myself while I was writing the post :)

  13. As it happens every year, your decorating magic makes my decorating a bit ashamed. I'm supposed to have a few friends over to do some decorating over the weekend. Let's see how that goes...

  14. That mirror looks a hundred times better! Love it! I agree...paint everything. :-) My mental Decorating is a gothic wonderland.
