This One’s For Julia – A CeCe Turquoise Blend…

I inherited this adorable side table, originally painted black…   decided it would be the perfect piece to turn JULIA  DSC_1116

Last week, when my daughter Julia was working at the store, she concocted her ‘future bedroom’ color – a blend of CeCe Caldwell Santa Fe Turquoise and Nantucket Spray

First coat, get it on…


The table had a little drawer with a pull.   I had the perfect knob in mind, and used it to determine the rest of the piece…


Went deeper on the drawer front with Destin Gulf Green, adding a little California Gold around the edge…  and it’s got a pretty little silver stencil inside the drawer


An extra row of bling  (she’ll like that!)


Sealed with CeCe Wax,  a quick and easy scrub on, wipe excess off.  Perfect.


While photographing something came to me – this piece needs its FEET dressed up, nothing crazy,  just a little somethin  somethin


I’ll share an update when I get those feet fixed 🙂



Thought about painting the feet Cali Gold but wanted to keep it more she-she, so out came the silver leaf.   I think my next video I’ll pick a smaller piece with feet we can gild, and you can see how easy it is to add this extra touch –


Now she’s perfect!
