Suzie..hi! :) I recently bought Pratt and Lambert "Obsidian" to paint some furniture and when I searched this site, I see that you bought this colour awhile back...did you use it and how does it look? We needed a very dark brown that was similar to our piano colour and I was scared to buy Turret Stair after reading some posts about a purple hue in it.

Just a note to evertone about P/L paint...We were told by a salesman at CT that the reason CT is not going to carry it anymore is because P/L and martha stewart paint are manufactured by the same company(Sherwin williams) and they are worried that P/L will not do well anymore because of the Martha Stewart connection. So silly...I am sure that most people never even knew that they were manufactured by the same company and even if they did, I can't see why people still wouldn't buy it.

I was actually hoping that if I had enough paint left over then I could paint our small vanity in the powder room that colour.

You have great taste so I know if you liked the the vanity in the magazine then I would like ours painted that colour.

hi again! You are right it is a really dark colour. It is the closest match that I could find to the piano. Dark browns are really hard to find. I want to paint some tables and maybe a mirror frame in it so when I get them done I will post pics so you can see how the colour looks incase you want to use your can of paint on something.

My hubby unhooked our scanner so I won't be posting any pics for some time I guess.:(
