New Series Begins Today!! Introducing... Coastal Waters

I have no doubt that I'll be doing a Part IV - Doors series in my future. 
However, it's now time for my Summer Series titled, Coastal Waters.


This will include shades of blue...my favorite!!! I began with the darkest shade of blue, 



Do you see the way the paint has a sort of "saltwater" finish? I didn't know it would do that!!! Seriously, the paint took on a life of it's own.  I just followed it's lead.  I used all products from CeCe Caldwell Paints including the gold wax.  Look closely, there is just a little in the center top drawer.  I wanted to highlight the carvings. 


I've already received so many kind comments and encouraging words about this makeover! 

I held on to this piece for a couple of months before I painted it.  My husband actually told me he'd buy it for me so I wouldn't paint it.  So, I listed it on my shop and waited, waited and waited.  I had a little interest but no offers to purchase.  I paid quite a bit for it, knowing this piece could be even more amazing.  


Enter CeCe Caldwell. She wanted me to try her paint and let her know what I thought about it. Guys and gals, this paint is a dream! What impressed me the most was the way the paint covered and made this saltwater finish.  It actually helped me turn my "vision" in to a reality.  I pictured a wave rushing up to the sand.  Have you ever noticed how the saltwater leaves a white, wavy bubbly line? Right before it vanishes, another wave comes rushing up, right?

The gold highlights I created with the wax are my idea of the sun glistening on the water. That original hardware is just so special.  


I'd love to see this piece being used as a dining room buffet, a wine bar or even a coffee bar. It's exquisite in design and I really love the new look.

This is the first piece in this series.  I'm off to start the second piece!

Happy holiday weekend to you all!
