Last summer I met Shelly from shizzle-design and she introduced me to CeCe Caldwell chalk paints. I hadn't done much furniture painting, and she made the process look "rather simple". There was very little sanding or prep work that needed to be done. This sounded like my type of painting!
I chose to work on the furniture in my girls' bedrooms. I went with a quart of the Carolina Sun and a small container of Simply White. Because you can water the paint down, I was able to get all of their furniture painted! Here are a couple pieces all finished.
Oh, I'm just keeping it real with all of the extra accessories here! No staging is taking place today.
After I finished painting the girls' furniture. I decided I wanted to paint something for me. I had my Poppop's stand in our dining area for years and I was ready to "change it up" a little bit. One thing that is hard for some people, is changing something that belonged to someone special, or painting over real wood! I could relate to both scenarios. However, once I painted the stand in Cinco Bayou Moss, I loved it! It really added that something "special" to the corner of the room!
What painting projects have you done, and have you ever used chalk paint?
