Annie Sloan Graphite Chalk Paint
Ok, so I might be obsessed with Chalk Painting at the moment! 🙂
I thought I’d give our upstairs hallway console table a refresh!
I decided to try something more bold and went with Annie Sloan’s Graphite. It’s a slate colour, and still neutral enough to work with any decor in my opinion.
The graphite lends itself really well for the shape of this piece. It’s more modern-traditional and the shade was perfect.
The original piece was dark brown stain to start and there was zero prep, as the piece is about 10 years old and in fine condition.
I didn’t want it to rustic so I just did a very light sanding on the drawer edges and the edges of the legs and top. Then finished it of with some clear wax and buffed it out.
What do you think? Do you like the graphite? Have you used it on pieces in your home? I would love to hear what you have done.
We’ve used Rustolium for other projects in the past. It will work well and is easy to find on amazon. Here is a link to their Charcoal colour which is very close to the graphite we went with.
