How to Paint Black and White Patterns

Hello my color lovers!

As most of you know….I am a lover of all colors and patterns! Especially if I can put them all together on ONE PIECE of furniture! I love being bold with paint and creating eye candy out of furniture. However…..patterns and color ALL MIXED UP often needs to be "grounded" (as I call it) in order to sort of contain the chaos! I do this with BLACK and WHITE patterns! I use these colors in either stripes, harlequin or checks to offset the hot mess going on otherwise! It works every time!

The colors black and white are as contrasting as you can get…and the lines where they meet need to be sharp! This will make or break your design! This little ditty of a video below will give you the very basic of basics on how to keep your design clean and crisp!

Since I recorded this video, I have found a new paint line that I LOVE even more. The technique is still the same but I would highly recommend Dixie Belle Paints to create these black and white patterns to compliment any other color combination. I use Caviar and Fluff and finished off with Top Coat in Satin

Here are examples of my black and white as accents…as well as these same patterns in other colors:
