Hey ~ do you recognize this one? Maybe if I show you the “before” photo…Now do you remember?Just finished this beauty today. It took several hours over the last two days to get her done. Why, you ask? Because I triple layered her! Using CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk Paint, I started off with a base coat of Virginia Chestnut. I LOVE this as a base, it makes it look like there is a dark wood under all those layers.For the second layer, I really just dry brushed on Vintage White. This is the easiest layer and quickest to apply. No need to be fussy ’cause the last layer is coming and I’ll completely cover the piece.So for the final layer, I used…you guessed it ~ Kansas Wheat! I can’t help it, I really LOVE this color.Once it was all dry (or when I returned from my Starbucks run), I took a few damp rags and began to distress. CeCe’s is so easy to work with. The layers are exposed with not much effort at all. In fact, you need to be gentle as you rub so not to go to deep.She then received a light brushing of clear and dark aging cream. I guess I could have taken a few inside shots to let you see all the awesome storage. I just didn’t even think of it until now. Haha! Anyway, the two outside doors open to shelving and the middle doors open to more shelving plus two drawers. Very nice! This would make a beautiful buffet or console for a TV. She has found a home in my booth at A Mad Hatter’s Antiques & Collectibles in Glendale, AZ.
May God bless you in the coming week!
