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!

Tuesday Tips: Deglossing Furniture

At some time in the past, high-gloss furniture was totally in! If that isn’t your look anymore, I’m going to show you an easy way to get rid of the gloss and make it new!

**Before you start with any piece, make sure to wipe down and clean it real good! I recommend Simply Green, TSP or a citrus cleaner.**

HIGH GLOSS TIME:

If your furniture looks like this…

((SHINY))

get rid of the shine by using a Liquid Deglosser.

Pour the Liquid Deglosser on a staining pad.

Wipe it on the piece, until you see the shininess start to fade.

And viola! Your piece is ready to paint!

This piece is painted in CeCe Caldwell’s Santa Fe Turquoise.  After distressing, I used the new Endurance Finish!
I called this piece Lauren , named after CeCe Caldwell’s daughter who is one of the sweetest girls I have ever met! After my trip to Arizona over Memorial Day weekend, I got to meet her! I’ll have a recap up about my trip to the CeCe Caldwell factory soon!
