Girls Bedroom Headboard in CeCe Caldwell’s Santa Fe Turquoise Paint

April 30, 2013

I was so excited to paint with CeCe Caldwell’s Santa Fe Turquoise paint for the first time this week.  I painted a custom headboard and foot board for a little girl’s room.  When the customer brought me this headboard, I couldn’t wait to see the Santa Fe Turquoise paint color pared against the metallic hardware.  Santa Fe Turquoise has great coverage and is very smooth going on.   cece-caldwells-chalk-clay-paint-santa-fe-turquoise-clear-waxAfter the first coat of CeCe Caldwell’s paint dried, I very lightly distressed the headboard and foot board, then applied clear wax.  cece-caldwell-paint-chalk-paint-clay-paint-clear-wax-santa-fe-turquoise-extra-closeThe mild distressing really sets off the paint color.close-up-painted-furniture-cece-caldwell-paint-chalk-paint-clay-paint-clear-wax-santa-fe-turquoiseThe customers loved it and I think it will be a bright, cheery and unique addition to this little girl’s room!

My mother-in-law brought me these dilapidated waterfall pieces. I prefer some stained wood on a piece when possible so I sanded down the tops and the drawer faces with my orbital sander and stained them using our Cappucinno wood stain.
