This is one of my favourite Annie Sloan CHALK PAINT™ colours - GRAPHITE. Not a true black it is more of a very dark grey, in fact Graphite is the perfect description. It is a soft colour with depth, to darken it up put black wax straight on. For a vintage look use dark wax and lighten it with white wax. Love it for classic, modern and vintage furniture. Here are some of my favourite images of furniture made over with Graphite CHALK PAINT™ by Annie Sloan.
