we all love the classic little black dress, but what about the little black dresser? it’s a keeper, too — the trusty dresser you can dress up or dress down. i have not just one, but two black dressers and i love them. both are vintage, found for super cheap. i added a couple of coats of matte black paint to them for my bedroom, and they don’t match, but the rich black color they share kind of makes up for that. and, i really like placing collectibles and artwork on and against that black palette — it just seems to make everything look a little bit more stylish and sophisticated. give it a try on any old dresser you’ve got that needs a little facelift! it’s a super easy and dramatically different before and after.

  1. I’ve been considering painting one of my dressers black. Love that first image especially! What paint did you use for yours, Victoria?

  2. Thanks for the inspiration!….I have small three drawer black dresser in my livingroom. Love it as it stores my DVDs and Cd’s. I love decorating the top, creating new looks :)

  3. Gosh, you just read my mind, I am about to paint the chest of drawers in my room black. I have a photo-shoot of the house happening soon and thought of making some changes around it. Love it!

  4. After reading your post, I took an old despised dresser and painted it black. It is beautiful now and I love it. The black paint changed the entire look. Thanks!
