Monday Musings: Black Lacquer Walls

Hello my darlings. Did you all have a wonderful weekend? I did and I am definitely paying the price for it this morning. So today I wanted to chat with you all about something very majorly serious and important. Black lacquer walls, y'all. I know this trend started some time ago but listen, I adopted then and I am now readopting it. I mean the glam factor is off the charts and admittedly, every time I see it in action, I experience heart palpitations and run for the nearest defibrillator. Preach. 



What say you? Is this trend in for the long haul? I cannot imagine parting ways with this one. I am going to give y'all a little heads up. I am getting ready to be getting my travel on for the next two weeks (Chicago and Houston) so posting may or may not be a little dodgy. If you love me though and cannot stand to part for such long periods, follow me on the Gram for constant glamour and humor. Bear with me (curse my name behind my back, whatever ya gotta do) and I will be on a normal schedule at some point. Cross my heart. xoxo

  3. When the right home and the right room presents itself, I will be doing this. Dark walls don't scare me!

  4. I love this look! I don't know how much of my place would look good black, but I've been considering (and pinning lots of images) painting the back of our front door black. Have a great vacation!!

  7. I LOVE black lacquer walls! I don't think it's a passing trend, I think it's here to stay, but the reason it doesn't go off-trend and is not overdone is because only the few and the brave venture into lacquered-wall territory.

    Your post is very timely for me - I did a DIY project yesterday, I painted my marble-topped bar cabinet in high-gloss black - I was attempting a lacquer-look, just like the walls in the photos you shared. I think two more cans of spray paint ought to do it, and if it's still not glossy enough I think I'll urethane/varnish it. Pictures to come soon on my blog over at www.housebeforespouse.com!

  15. I get mesmerized when it comes to shiny things, I might just go into a trance if i had a shiny room in my house. Now that I think about it my husband might like that actually.
