Emerald Isle Green Antique Desk with CeCe Caldwell Paint

April 18, 2013

I am so happy to be able to share one of my absolute favorite for sale furniture items that I’ve refinished.  A fellow furniture painted and military spouse was moving off of the island and needed to unload some of her stock. 

After a drive to the other side of the island and some heaving lifting by my wonderful husband, we brought this stately lady home.I went crazy for the antique hardware, rusted as it was.

I knew that this antique mahogany desk would sell more quickly with a neutral color like Vintage White or Vermont Slate but I could not resist doing an Emerald Isle Green makeover with CeCe Caldwell paint with Gold hardware (of course)!  After fixing some of the dents and missing wood, I applied one coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Emerald Isle Green. Isn’t she grand?  The hardware shined up well with Rub ‘n Buff antique gold.

Naturally, after I staged it, I wanted to keep it, but alas I can’t keep everything!
