Black Pottery

how to do a black antique finish on furniture?

How do I go about achieving that black rubbed/antiqued look on a previously unpainted dresser. Do I use a stain or paint. I want the edges to look rubbed off or roughed up a bit. I don't think I want it jet black, just very dark it almost looks black. The look I have in mind is inspired by pottery barn and hobby lobby. Any tips would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Here's a site with step-by-step directions!
