Before anyone else can suggest it, I know, I know, I should use a better camera. When I’m in the middle of stuff, I grab my crackberry but I should dig out the good camera and stuff it full of batteries so it is on the ready. For now, fuzzy pics will suffice. Here is the small table I painted (Annie Sloan’s “Graphite” chalk paint) and waxed (just minwax for light wood). The graphite paint is the closest to “black” you can get with AS, but it reads like a midnite sky – there is a definite blueness to it. I chose not to paint the table top as coffee tables see a lot of spilled coffee, among other things.
Note: I painted two coats (I know many people swear that one coat will do it) and I painted the underside of the table as well (I realize many folks would find that silly) and I used approximately 1/5 to 1/4 of the quart of paint.
