The Result....I'm Pretty Impressed!


Well, as I said yesterday, I've heard some buzz about CeCe Caldwell Paint lately. I grabbed a can of Santa Fe Turquoise, clear wax and light wax. Call me a little chicken, I decided to use a piece that I already owned in case I wasn't pleased with the result. If I bought the chest for the shop specifically, I'd have been bummed if I didn't like the finished product. Weeeellllll....(insert drum roll here, please)

I really LIKED it!

I liked that it was self priming and only took one coat. Sorry I didn't take a before pic., but suffice it to say, this chest had spent time in my "forest green" ivy sponge painting days. I wasn't sure if one coat would do it, but it did! Awesome.

I've blogged before about my love of Montana Gold spray paint, especially Strawberry, so fun!! I decided to see if this paint passed a serious test. Could I use spray and stencil onto this paint??? (Before waxing, of course) Guess what??? Worked like a dream.

I'd like to think that this bright colored baby is the start of a new trend.... Modern French Style.
LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!! So lively and fun, perfect for any room...bath, bedroom, office, you name it.

One last picture....just to show off my peonies, the chest of course.

Have a good one!

I love this color - it is one of favorite CeCe Colors - I also love your dresser. Turned out great!!! I love the great smelling and easy to work with wax.
That is one of the biggest reasons that I decided to carry this product in my shop.

Thanks for sharing.
