This dresser was dull and drab but had a terrific mahogany top so, i refinished the top and painted the rest black.

At the moment I find myself painting in black or antique white. I hope to have the courage to explore other colors! I keep this dresser in my kitchen holding my coffee station.

I can't tell from the photo, but is it painted in a gloss or a satin finish?
Thanks for sharing.
