Vermont Slate by Cece Caldwell's Chalk + Clay Paints is another favorite for a stately, sophisticated look. This dark gray color is great paired with a lighter gray for a classy two-toned look and also works wonderfully to tint wax for a glaze. Pair it with Jersey Tomato like we did with the pictured end tables for a showstopping look. Use as a base coat under a lighter color for even more depth. Vermont Slate is a must-have paint color.
