  1. I have been receiving your emails for a long time and constantly admiring your renewed pieces … I finally got brave and refinished one of my own that had water damage from hurricane Andrew. Used Cece Caldwell paint, endurance on the top and dark aging wax. Did all the work without having to move the piece from the dinning room! What a treat!

    I am in love! Thank you for the inspiration! Inae

  2. Sounds like a success Inae! Send me pictures and I’ll share it on here- I love that about our paints, no moving outside , just work your stuff right where its at – thanks for sharing, and for inspiration!
