Full of Hope Chest
My summer to do list has been filled with nondescript painting of 10 foot plus taller white walls… Alone… In our approx. 3,000 sq. ft. house. By the time I get done, all of the colors will be out of style. It’s only been three years, maybe I’ll be finished by next year?! So, I had to take a quick break to tackle one of my preferred painting objects… Furniture!
This time, the project got really, really personal. Hold your tongue, Mother, I chose to paint my hope chest (AKA: my first piece of furniture)! Remember the days when a young lady would get a hope chest for her 16th birthday, then fill it with her dowry of important items. Ha! A modern lady I am, there was not much of monetary value, mostly just sentimental. It took me over 20 years to even touch it though. Years ago, I thought that I would try to fix the chew marks from my beloved fur babies by repairing, stripping, and restating it. Yeah, that didn’t happen. But after I met CeCe Caldwell chalk paint, I was a convert for sure.
Several months back, I purchased some samples of CeCe Caldwell paint, Santa Fe Turquoise and Nantucket Spray. I used the dry brush technique to complete this project for all applications.
So dry, in fact, that the paint was changing colors as I was working because it dried so fast!
This new color coordinates so much better with the other pieces I have done in my master bed room. Check out my bed… It’s actually made for a change! And see the pretty and simple euro sham cover I added so that it doesn’t take away from my headboard?
I’ve got to get these posted now so that I. Can head over to Miss Mustard Seed’s linky party of Furniture Feature Friday! Take care!
P.S. what do you think about the Sherwin Williams Ellie Grey on the walls?
