Cannonball color blog!
Finding a true black is challenging, and creating a rich full-bodied black is even more challenging. At American Paint Company we’ve worked hard to find a perfect shade of black and we think we’ve nailed it with Cannonball! Here are a few samples of painted pieces from our retailers.
Simple Key-TroVe in Portage, MI, painted a buffet with clean lines using Cannonball and creating a perfectly understated beauty!
Cannonball was used on a vintage frame and lightly distressed to reveal its original wooden base, by Simple Key-TroVe.
The Marketplace on Main in Savannah, TN, used American Paint Company Cannonball and Black Glaze to paint the top of a wonderful carved dresser. The body of the dresser was painted with APC’s Dollar Bill and finished with Top Coat mixed with Pewter Mica, and another layer of Black Glaze, Pewter Mica and Top Coat. To make this piece more elegant and substantial, bun feet were added to the base. Love it!
And a stunning table uses Cannonball on the tabletop and Navajo White on the base and legs by Marketplace on Main!
This wonderful kitchen island is painted with Cannonball, lightly distressed and finished with Clear Wax, by KD’s Sweet Pickens in Marysville, CA!
The Willow Branch in Springfield, MO, painted a coffee table using Cannonball, and projected an image on the tabletop, painting the design with Gun Powder for a subtle contrast. Also painted in Cannonball and Gun Powder is this beautiful Lawyers bookcase by The Willow Branch.
Lastly, The Willow Branch painted a vintage dresser in Cannonball with Clear and Dark Wax, wanting to make it even more special, they decoupaged an enlarged photo of their son, shown at Alaska’s Healing Hearts Bear Camp for wounded warriors. He harvested this 6’5″ big boy with his bow. This is quite the bear! And we thank you for your service!
The Vintage Dames in Harrisburg, PA, painted a dresser with American Paint Company Fireworks Red and Cannonball on the trim and base. The original gold hardware was used on the drawer fronts, it’s sweet & looks a bit like Santa’s belly, we love this piece! You can read how this piece was created here.
