Just before the holidays, a woman hired me to paint this china cabinet that she purchased down the street at another antique shop.
Before, it had a boring, medium brown finish. She chose Emperor's Silk Chalk Paint, which is a rich and sophisticated red. I have not used this color very often, but it is gorgeous and makes a dramatic statement in a room.
Here it is all set up and looking lovely in my client's dining room.
The finishing coat of dark wax adds a touch of artistry over the bright red of the Emperor's Silk.
