glossy black paint

dalmadarlingOctober 28, 2011

The projects at the darling dwelling continue! I'm thinking of painting or newly built bar (thank you to all who suggested the stainless steel. it's a winner and the direction we're headed!) I'm thinking of painting the bar base black and want a little higher gloss than this. Flooring is concrete, stainless steel bar going with the industrial look and would love suggestions on a great black paint.

Photo for reference of the style we're headed:

If you want a high gloss black paint you cannot go wrong with BM Impervo High Gloss or Satin. We used in in the alkyd formula for our front door (both exterior & interior) and also on the powder room cabinets. For the interior doors I used BM Impervo High Gloss in the latex formula (because clean-up is sooo much easier). In my opinion, if you can can get the alkyd it's a better finish, but if not, the latex will be fine -- sand in between thoroughly dried coats.

Enjoy your new kitchen!
