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!

Green Is the Color for Spring.

In case you haven’t heard already… Green is the “It” color for Spring!

 (The first picture looks a little blue, but if you don’t believe me check it out at my booth in Fort Worth)

This dresser is painted in CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paints, color: Destin Gulf Green. Topped off with both clear wax & aging wax!

Like it or Love it? It is heading to Montgomery Street Antique Mall in Fort Worth, TX!

Entertainment Center Makeover

One of my best friend’s daughter, Courtney, recently got married and while moving into her apartment, they wanted a change to their previously purchased entertainment center.

Here is how Courtney created this piece that fits perfectly in their new home!
She began by painting the piece in CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paint: Traverse Cherry.

Then painted in CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paint: Memphis Blue & distressed using a baby wipe.

Completed using CeCe Caldwell’s Satin Finish…

And it was complete!

The piece now happily sits in their first home as Mr. & Mrs.! If you love a piece, and want to save money just give it a new look with paint like Courtney did!

What can you do with a quart of CeCe chalk clay paint?

One of the first questions customers ask me about CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Clay Paint is how much will a quart cover.  So I decided to show you how much it will cover! 
Start off with one quart of CeCe Caldwell’s Paint in your choice of color (mine is almost always Vintage White), a can of clear wax, a can of dark aging wax, rag, three brushes, and a very fine sanding block.
This picture was taken in my paint room in my new home! So love having a paint  room!!!!
Next I went to the garage and started pulling pieces of furniture!
When the last drop of paint was gone this is what I had done………
A small desk, round end table, sofa table (with Virginia Chestnut) two tall night stands, a three drawer end table, and two picture frames!  Wow!  That is a lot!
Just a little closer look at these beautiful pieces!
That is a total of 8 projects!!! 
I have enough of clear wax left to do a small table or chair and I  only used about one third of the can of aging wax! The best  part is I painted all of this in my new paint room and had no odor since CeCe Caldwell’s Paints has no VOC and is naturally green!!!
So spending $32.95 for a quart of paint and purchasing a couple of cans of Wax at $27.95 each is well worth the money when you can cover this much!
