My work friend, Joanie wanted me to find her a BIG headboard. She wanted it to be a "statement piece". Then she wanted it to look like old world elegance. And it needed to be queen size. Kinda a tall order! Especially since queen size is a relatively modern size. After a couple of weeks of looking, I happened upon this beauty.
Just look at those details! Joanie loved it! Now on to color choices......
After looking on Pintrest and other internet sites and doing a couple samples boards, she decided on CeCe Caldwell's Paints in Seattle Mist.
This picture is after the first coat of paint. Yes, I am painting in my kitchen! That is my only choice in the frigid Wisconsin winter. My paint would probably freeze if I tried painting in the garage! That's one of the cool things about CeCe's paint...no VOCs and very little odor. And you can watch it dry!
You can see it goes on pretty dark and then it lightens as it dries. Must be all those minerals, chalk and clay in the paint.
After the second coat of paint dried, I sanded with 220 grit sandpaper and applied CeCe Caldwell's clear wax.
Here are a couple close ups of some of the details of the headboard.
And here is a picture of the FINAL product in it's new home!! (I requested a better picture...will update when I receive it.) She was VERY HAPPY!!
Today we are having our first "Paint Made Easy" Workshop at Tags in Hudson. We are very excited to welcome everyone to try out CeCe Caldwell's Paint. We have a full house, plus one extra.
