    Hi everyone, I have a wooden platform in my flat that (currently painted white) I want to re-decorate so that it looks just like the black / slate shelf in the attached images. Apologies for the poor image quality, but it's the best I can do as I screen-grabbed them from a video.

    Do you think I would be better off painting it in a slate colour? Or any other recommendations, such an veneer or vinyl wraps? What do you reckon would be my best option to replicate it?

    Thanks in advance for any advice.

    Sand it down smooth,

    Use a dark coloured primer. 1x coat

    Lightly sand

    Purchase some satin gloss black

    Use a high quality gloss roller to paint (not the foam ones)

    Sand

    Do another coat

    Sand

    Final coat.

    You might be able to spray it also.

    I don't think you would get the look with vinyl, and veneer can be very tricky
