Painted and Waxed Wall

by Annie Sloan

This striking red wall was painted in Chalk Paint® in Emperor’s Silk and then waxed to give it a soft sheen.

The wall in Annie’s dining room has been painted in Chalk Paint® in Emperor’s Silk using a Chalk Paint® Brush. Clear Chalk Paint® Wax was then applied to give it a soft sheen, which you could also buff for a highly polished look.

The contrasting chair is painted with Provence, a light blue-green.

To find out more about this project and read full instructions on how to do this in your own home, take a read of Annie’s book Annie Sloan Paints Everything.
