Best Black Chalk Mineral Paint For Furniture

First, let’s start by listing some of my favorite paint brands and their options for black paint. So as many know my general go-to paint is Dixie Belle Paint, but I have also used Wise Owl, Fusion, and General Finishes paints. Here are a few great black paint options:

You’ll see many different painters use different brands. And that is okay! It’s fun to try different brands and colors! Each has it’s own benefits.

How To Paint Furniture Black

Painting furniture black is just like painting any other color. You want to consider all the prep things, like filling any holes or other repairs and any sanding.

Do You Need To Prime Before Painting Furniture Black?

While you don’t have to always prime before painting furniture, it’s a good idea. Priming helps to seal in the furniture’s original finish and provides a better bond between the paint and the furniture.

It also ensures a smooth finish when applying coats of black paint.

But you wouldn’t want to use a while primer, so consider a clear or gray color primer. Also you can tint your primer with a little of the black paint that you plan to use.

Using a clear or darker primer will result in use of less coats of paint overall. However, most projects will require two coats of paint.

Consider Using An All-In-One Paint In Black

Another option is to consider using an all-in-one paint, like Dixie Belle Silk. The color Anchor is a gorgeous black and it has a built-in primer and topcoat, saving steps in the process.

What Is The Best Topcoat For Black Painted Furniture?

Again, this question is tricky. Honestly any great poly or wax topcoat will do fine.

Some people find that clear coats get a little streaky over black and other dark color painted furniture. However, applying thin coats can help.

Consider Sealing With Hemp Seed Oil

One option for black painted furniture is to consider using Hemp Oil.

Dixie Belle Hemp Oil is an excellent sealant and provides amazing shine to darker color painted furniture.

The oil will soak into any porous chalk mineral paint that doesn’t have a built-in topcoat in it.
