Fabric Painted Chair

I got a couple of ugly chairs from my sister in law.  Lucky for me she had been hoarding them in her basement & need to clean it out because she was moving.  This one was in the best shape.

I knew this would be perfect for my very 1st CeCe Caldwell paint demo!  What better way to get people talking about the paint than to paint fabric?  I decided to paint it Young Kansas Wheat because it kinda reminds me of burlap, a great neutral color.  It was great at the demo, the color was gorgeous & everyone was really excited about painting fabric! I covered this dark navy blue with 2 coats of Young Kansas Wheat.  The arms & legs were also painted in Young Kansas wheat then Vintage White & rubbed back with a damp rag to reveal the Young Wheat in areas that would normally wear.  I waxed the arms  & legs with clear & tiny amount of light aging wax.  The fabric got 2 coats of Satin Finish mixed with water 50/50.

Thanks to KammyKim & Claire for the featuring my chair!

Rustic Farmhouse Table

I have wanted a round table for years but we have an awesome huge farmhouse table.  I was in love when I picked this one up.  It was in rough shape!  It took me a while to get it put back together.  It is missing the original leaf so I just attached the sides so they won't open. I was originally going to stain the top a dark walnut but once I stripped it down I loved the original color.  I  painted the base white, distressed, sealed the whole table with poly & called it done!


This is how the table was when I got it, in pieces.

Lake House Nightstand

I found this little nightstand to go with this dresser.  It is a lucky little nightstand & gets to live at the lake!  Even though it looks like maple, it is actually bleached mahogany.  Great quality, just dated 50's style!

I removed the pull, that is actually a door behind there & not a drawer!  Weird!  I had to match the paint color to go with the dresser.  I had used Annie Sloan to make the paint for the dresser but I am now selling CeCe Caldwell paint.  It wasn't as hard as I thought to mix the colors.  

You can see the colors are a perfect match, the original paint I mixed (AS) is on the door & the new mix with CeCe is on the rest.  Perfect match!

Vintage White French Buffet

This is one of those pieces that I immediately fell in love with!  Something about those french legs & curvy drawers!  I knew right off this piece was meant to be Vintage White.  It didn't need any work, so a quick paint job, light distressing & coat of wax.  It sold in less than a week!  Wish I could find a few more of these!
