In The Office
In The Living Room
I chose CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint for this job!
First layer ~ Virginia Chestnut
Second layer ~ Kansas Wheat
Then I distressed by using a damp cloth.
This is where it gets fun but it’s also the most labor intensive.
This is a close up after I finished it off with a mixture of clear and dark wax.
Yahoo!!! Beautiful and the stain is nowhere to be found!!!
Next, I moved into the living room.
Randal (man of the house) prefers dark, rich colors so I wanted to bring out the colors in the brick. I used multiple layers, first Kansas Wheat, then Vintage White and finally Vermont Slate. After distressed with several damp cloths, I used a mixture of clear and dark wax to seal and protect.
Oh…and this would be my Supervisor for the job! Isn’t she the cutest? Her name is Dalis and she is such a happy baby. She’s waving to you all, that’s why her hands are blurry! I think I’m just going to have to schedule some play dates now that work is finished.
It really makes a statement in the room now! It’s my favorite out of the three!
Next comes the family room fireplace. This one ends up being Randal’s favorite!
The base color was already a nice color it just didn’t stand out, so I suggested just using dark wax to accent and give it depth.
