A Painted Makeover In Colonial Blue And Bayberry Caromal Colours

I was cleaning photos off my laptop and came upon these photos of Melissa’s painted desk makeover, over at the Inspired Room.


Even though I briefly mentioned this makeover back in October 2009, I wanted to share again.  Why, asketh you?

Easy – it is one of my favorite Caromal Colour makeovers –



Melissa used Caromal Colours Textured Basecoat Colonial Blue first, when that layer was dry she brushed on the CC Chipping Creme, then over that brushed on a layer of CC Textured Basecoat Bayberry.  She sanded to distress,  brushed on the CC Toner and then wiped it off.

Here you can see the trim sample using the Caromal Colours Country Living Artisian Collection of Decorative Paints – A Distress For Success Kit, color BAYBERRY created the lovely finish. The flat sample underneath is also worked up using The Bayberry Textured Basecoat, but instead of just toning, Caromal Colours Wall Glaze was brushed on, and Stried, to give more interest to the panels.

I am not a wallpaper fan, but LOVE it in this room!   Definitely a whole new look, don’t you think?

You can use this for the whole thing, or if you’d like to follow this project to a T and ‘strie’ the main panels with glaze, then you would also need to order a quart of  Wall Glaze COLOR  COFFEE STAINattribute_lightbox_GLCS32.jpg

And lastly, some Liberon Wax  COLOR  NEUTRAL   for protection –
