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!

Staining and Painting an Antique Chest of Drawers in Lichen Mix
Staining and Painting an Antique Chest of Drawers in Lichen Mix

Today I'm featuring a thrift store chest of drawers that my sister-in-law and I found.  I thought I'd have to paint the whole thing because of damage to the veneer. But alas, while sanding some goop off of the top, I realized that the veneer underneath was perfectly fine and sanded the whole thing.  I decided to stain the top in Cappuccino Stain Oil, the perfect rich brown.

I recently freshen up my farmhouse style dining room table in Fusion Mineral Paint's Picket Fence and did a custom mix of Lichen and Picket Fence on my Buffet. 

All of the furniture pieces with the exception of the industrial shelving unit are used pieces that I've re-homed and painted with Fusion Mineral Paint.

I just repainted our brick fireplace using Fusion Mineral Paint. I still need to do a few more coats of black paint on the 90's gold but I'm loving it so far! First I dry brushed on a coat of Lamp White but it looked too cool in tone so I dry brushed on my go-to off white, Champlain on about half of the bricks to warm it up.
