Anyone else spending their Summer in 100 degree weather? It's so hot and humid here in Oklahoma City. I have to almost push myself out to the garage to paint during the months of July & August.
I did, however, create a weathered multi colored finish on this vintage wardrobe. Plus, my hats made their staging debut.
This makes #2 in my newest Summer series,
I used all products from the CeCe Caldwell Paints line. The colors I chose are Sante Fe Turquoise, otherwise know as the prettiest turquoise EVER. I also used Windsor Blue and a tiny bit of Pueblo Pepper. For some reason, using just one color at a time seems disappointing, so for now I'm playing with textures and blending.
In case you're wondering, wardrobes are so much harder to paint than dressers, buffets or chests. There's a whole lot more surface area but also the large flat surfaces are hard to get a good texture on. If you're a painter, you know the pieces with detail are easier to achieve a worn and distressed look.
That red you see is Pueblo Pepper, also by CeCe Caldwell Paints.
Here is a "before" image. This piece sat in a store for weeks and weeks. It just needed a new look.
Look at that huge copper pot I found last week. I'm storing this on our driftwood bookcase and filling it with Mexican style blankets.
I love the imperfection here. The chippy texture reminds me that beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Plus, any chance I can make a mess and get away with it is a good thing for me!
This piece has just sold and will be headed to a new home next week!
