When I first started using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint a year and a half ago, I played it safe. I stuck to Old White and Paris Gray.
I love these colors! But I wanted to try more. So I got bold.
I dabbled with all the shades of blue.
But the one color that scared me was Graphite. It is not the true black that I was used to. It’s almost a dark, steel grey – definitely not black.
So when I found a piece that I wanted black, I went back to my tried and true latex paint.
I decided to face my fear of Graphite and I bought a quart.
This table is painted in Graphite and the bottom is covered in straight dark wax. The top has not been waxed.
Here the table is complete. Dark wax all over.
I absolutely love this finish! It gives it a depth and color similar to pieces at Restoration Hardware. It definitely gives the piece character.
I am thrilled that I got over my fear and tried Annie Sloan Chalk Paint – Graphite.
You will be seeing a lot more of this color.
This darling table will be available at Simply Vague – Tuttle Crossing Mall on September 1.
Face your fear!
