If you're a consignor at Room With A Past and Paris Flea Market you WOOD! Have you ever wondered why the prices are so reasonable at both stores?? It's because we consignors go all over the state and beyond to find unusual things at a low cost that we can unleash our creativity on!
The task of redoing this humble piece was quickly cut down to size with one coat of Cece Caldwell's Virginia Chestnut Paint. We sell the paint at both stores, so a small "sample" jar ($8.95) was an easy buy. The paint was diluted (1/2 water & 1/2 paint), and the cost of this delicious base coat cost $4.50! And took under 45 minutes to paint....!
Next up was a quick coat of Seattle Mist, and a stenciled design was applied to the center panel.
Two half sample jars of Cece's paint = 8.95
1/4 can of Clear Wax = 7.00
A "new" piece of gorgeous furniture = priceless!

Now, chop, chop and get to it!!!
