Custom Order: Painted Furniture, Desk





College is always a good excuse for a new desk, or furniture for that matter! Everyone wants the perfect dorm room or apartment! With school approaching, I was contacted by a young lady who is beginning her freshman year at Texas Christian University, home of the Horned Frogs. They love their PURPLE, and so it is only fitting that this desk was painted in CeCeCaldwell‘s New Orleans Purple! 


I hope everyone has a wonderful start to their school year, whether you are attending or your children are starting back up! Make it a great year!

We got green! Well, CeCe Caldwell’s Paints are “Naturally green in the color of your choice” that is!
Green is the new black.. ok, maybe not. But green and “going green” are definitely continuing to be a popular fad throughout the US. Organic foods, non-toxic cleaners, all natural everything! Well.. CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paints are all natural!  Yes, that’s right.. you can GO GREEN, from all natural foods, to all natural paints!

You know what this means, right? You can pick ANY color, choose to paint inside your home, no sanding or priming AND… it is GREEN! All natural paint, in the color of your choice!  


Allison is my BFFPB.  That is my Best Friend Forever Paint Buddy!
I met Allison from Refunk My Junk at CeCe Caldwell’s retailer training this past April in Waco, Texas!  
We immediately connected and talk paint all the time! 
Wesley calls Allison Lil’ Miss Spitfire, because she has so much drive and energy!
Thank you Allison for sharing all your expert business and painting knowledge with me! 

I named this French Provincial dresser after Allison.  It is such a beautiful piece, painted in CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paints Vintage White and sealed in Allison’s favorite,  Satin Finish!
Don’t you just love the storage!
And look at the gorgeous curves!
This piece sold at Frisco Mercantile as quickly as I put it in my suite!
But I have another one coming soon!
What color would you like to see the next dresser painted in?
