Maybe it has to with being from New York, but I love black. Fashion, design, decor, even paint feels elevated to a new elegance when it’s our neutral and darkest color. It highlights everything around it and yet stands out on it’s own. The epitome of chic. Paint it, wear it, always in good taste, timeless and on trend, it makes a statement on it’s own, no matter how it’s used. Every room should have a touch of black
I’m not sure I posted about it, but I painted all of my interior doors black (Rustoleum, oil-based, semi-gloss).
Annie Sloan Chalk Paint doesn’t have a true black, more of a dark rich charcoal grey, Graphite
I left the top and edges the natural finish, wiping off any paint I mistakenly put there. Pure and Original makes a Dead Flat Eco Seal, which I love, but I wanted a bit of a shine, so I finished with Annie Sloan Clear Wax, buffing well. I’ve mixed brands before, and Annie’s wax seals P&O Classico (chalk) beautifully. Pure & Original doesn’t offer a wax at this point, because it’s not necessary to seal any of their paints. I chose Clear Wax because I wanted a sheen. Perfectly and completely black:)
