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.
