Easy As One, Two, Three!

If we had a timed lapsed video, we could more easily show why we busy consignors at Room With A Past and Paris Flea Market love this paint! The next best thing is before and after photos, so with out further ado,  roll 'em!

You can paint almost anything with Cece Caldwell's Paints, so grab your brush and follow along! 

One: First, the handles were removed. Then mix your paints if you want to get a custom color to your liking. Here, we used Seattle Mist & Vintage White (use 1/4 cup of each) and then add a tablespoon of Memphis Blue to paint this piece.  Then PAINT!

TA DA!!!

Two: Want to mix it up a little? Here we painted the top and all the drawer details using just Vintage White. Then a petite fleur di lis was painted in the center of the wood embellishment. SO EASY, no?

Three: Finish it off with a protective coat of Clear Wax, paint your handles and wax them up too, if you're so inclined (we were!). It's so fun, we didn't want to stop! What else can we do? Oooh, Aging Wax! Used sparingly on the raised details and corners, it gives the perfect aged look we LOVE!  

Anything else? Nope! Just rinse out your paint brush in the kitchen sink (this paint is all GREEN!) and don't forget to take a photo of your masterpiece! The whole thing took one coat and in under four hours total work time, we're done! One, two, three!


  1. Love the colour you came up with for this dresser! Looks so pretty and fresh!

  2. gorgeous dresser redo, love the wonderful colors you used!

  3. I used that same color mix on my headboard! Your dresser is so pretty, especially with the mirror. I could paint dressers forever.

  4. Love this piece. Your writing style is so cute!
