painted center console, looks brown

alright so i went to paint my center console with black krylon fusion paint, and it looked pretty good after i got done. but i went to put it all but in the truck and it suddenly looks brown when its in place. this is really confusing me because outside its perfect black but as soon as it gets in the truck, its brown....

How many coats did you use? Maybe it was thick in some places and thin in others.

What color is your interior? It could be reflections from your interior.

Cleaned it with soap and water. Other than that nothing, just shot it and cleared it.
