|The lovely "BEFORE"|
Can you see past its chipped, "antiqued"and out-dated exterior? Can you see the matching mirror harp floating magically in the other junk that we all have in our garages? (TELL ME you have this float-sum in your garage too, please!!) It's a writing desk, it's a dressing table, it's SUPER SURFACE!!! Able to be used any darn way you see fit in your home! Don't you love the gams on it? Hubba, hubba!
|The even more lovely "AFTER"! (Painted by Pam Lawrence)|
Wow! Can you believe this is the same piece? But I have to let you in on a little secret. Yes, this piece was transformed with Cece Caldwell's Chalk & Clay based paint, BUT it wasn't straight out of the can--it was mixed with a few other colors of Cece's before being applied. Want to know the recipe?
1/2 cup (or 1 part) Simply White
1/2 cup (or 1 part) Seattle Mist
1/4 cup Smoky Mountain
1 Tbsp. Memphis Blue
The raised areas and the metal handles (that's right--just paint right over 'em!) were highlighted with Vintage White. When all was dry, the Clear Wax was used to protect it.
Just like magic, huh? Check it out at Room With A Past October 18 - 21st.
