Lamp Black and sandpaper!

I know I'm back to these again, but I just wasn't completely happy with the color of the frames. I get neurotic like that, and when I think about it I have to figure out how to fix it. So, I decided to paint them with my favourite black paint . Benjamen Moore,Olde Century Colors called "Lamp Black"....LOVE IT!

I like the wood grain feel, but not the overall color, which you can see in a previous post, so I painted, rag rubbed while wet, and then lightly sanded. I love how you can see some of the previous, grey/blue color showing thru!

Much better, and more suited to me! I'm happy now, no more nagging thoughts....
