French Graphic Cupboard

This precious little cupboard will be for sale soon at Furniture Affair!  I just finished her today as their “Guest Painter”.  The two front doors were just screaming for one of The Graphics Fairy designs.  Click here for your copy.  This graphic fit perfectly.  The tricky part was measuring (several times) to make sure both graphics were placed in exactly the same place on each door.  Tracing and hand painting takes a long time so I didn’t want any chances of a redo!  The Furniture Affair specializes in Model Home Furnishings and sometimes they get in pieces that need a little TLC.  That’s where I come in!  I get to paint a couple of pieces for them each month in their showroom.  It’s so fun to visit with customers as they walk by and ask questions about chalk paint!  I’ve met so many lovely people!


I used graphite paper to transfer the design onto each door then hand painted with a fine brush in black.

Colors used on cupboard ~ CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint, Vintage White and Destin Gulf Green.  Clear and Aging wax were used to seal the cupboard.

  21. I am so glad you popped into my blog and introduced yourself because I love your blog! I checked out several posts and when I saw “duck egg blue” I just knew we spoke the same language. :) You pieces are amazing and I am excited to explore your blog and see some more!

  22. I am COMPLETELY IN AWE OF YOU. Wow, I am so glad I stopped by. (Clicked to follow using GFC too!) I JUST used CeCe Caldwell paint to do a birdhouse. Don’t laugh… birdhouse painting is the only thing I could paint and not mess up. You have inspired me SO MUCH. I love how you share the graphics from the Graphic’s Fairy, and I adore your ideas and colors. BE BLESSED today! {Happy Sunday, too!} And again, thanks for the amazing inspiration. I will be back to see what else you do! xoxo jules from blesid thrifter

    • Gosh…thank you so much for all your wonderful compliments! You are very sweet. I love birdhouses too, but I don’t have time to paint them so I’m glad you do! The Graphics Fairy has several small designs that I’m sure you could incorporate while designing your birdhouses! :) So glad you are now following! ~ Judy

  23. Gorgeous piece. Initially, I thought this was Miss Mustard Seed’s Kitchen Scale, but I see now it it CeCe Caldwell’s. So pretty. I love the Graphics Fairy, too. Thanks for providing the link to the image you used. I hadn’t seen that one before, and I’m definitely saving it to my “possibilities” file.

  24. I used the same image on a ottoman tray I finished recently. Love that image and love the piece you did! I can see way CeCe Caldwell named that color “Destin Gulf Green” because it looks just like the waters of Destin, FL. Great work!

  25. Oh, I love it. The colors are so pretty, and the graphics are perfect. Thanks so much for sharing at A Bouquet of Talent. I love seeing your beautiful designs. Have a wonderful week!! :)
