Dan Elman For Kitsch-n-Kaboodle

“Here’s a detail shot- black spray paint, 2x light coats, with 5x coats of poly over top of the distressing. Black looks best over light finishes if using a wood tone finish for your undercoat color, so that you get contrast. I like to put it over maple or poplar. Sand the enamel paint in areas where it would naturally wear through- around knobs, corners of tops, crest rails on chairs, etc. I use 320 grit super fine sand paper. I wait 3 days and spray it liberally with polyurethane”Dan Elman

Dan’s Black Painted Chippendale Chairs

Chippendale chairs, moderately distressed. These are made by Thonet in the 50s and came from a restaurant. The client wanted the distressed black finish only. She recovered the seats herself after delivery. That’s why only some of them have seats in the pics. Dan Elman

Dan Elman's Distressed Black Vanity

“Here’s a detail from a 1920s vanity- very natural looking wear patterns achieved with black spray paint and ultra-fine sand paper, with a contrasting light color wood peeking through. If you distress through to a color that is too dark, it will get lost in the black finish. This one was a light walnut color before it was painted. The client replaced the original mirror with something she bought elsewhere & hung on the wall above it post-delivery.” –Dan Elman
