Carolina Sun Yellow

Carolina Sun is one of my favorite CeCe Caldwell Paint colors.  Wait a minute, I think I say that about every color.  I can't help it, I love all of the beautiful colors!  Unfortunately I don't have a before picture of this table.  It was given to me by a friend.  It need some help on the legs, it would only stay up if it was folded & pushed against the wall.

I painted it with 2 coats of Carolina Sun Yellow.  It was a perfect choice for this table.  I lightly distressed it & sealed it with the wonderful CeCe Caldwell wax.  You have to try this wax!  It goes on so smooth & smells wonderful!  Best of all, its all natural & ok to breathe!  

And just because he is so cute:

It is now available at City Antiques.

Graphite Desk

This was a beautiful vanity but it was missing the mirror & the veneer on top was in really bad shape.  Sorry for the crappy before picture, this is the only one I could find with the drawers from the purple dinosaur sitting on top.  (that will be another post if I ever get it done!).  It had a beautiful raised half moon piece on the top that had to come off to remove all of the veneer.  I liked it so much I painted it white & distressed it.  I'm keeping it for myself :)

I originally planned on painting it black with ASCP Graphite as the base so I wouldn't have to sand it.  After I got a really good coat of Graphite on I really liked the look.  I didn't distress & sealed with a wipe on poly.  It is a great size for a small desk or could still be used as a vanity.    It still has the original wooden casters, love!

44"L x 28"H x 17 1/2"D, leg opening 19 1/2".  Available for sale at City Antiques in Roswell.
