It's been about a month since I really was able to get to the garage and paint anything. We were busy just before vacation and have been running ever since we got back.
Last week I finally got back out there. I took some time to paint a couple of tables that we have had in the garage for a bit. I had no specific plans for these. So this time, I was just playing with paint! Trying out different techniques and colors. Here are my results.
This table was painted in CeCe Caldwell's Chalk & Clay Paint using Cinco Bayou Moss and Virginia Chestnut. I base coated the top in Virginia Chestnut, before applying a crackle finish to just the inset and then painted the entire table in Cinco Bayou Moss. I love this color. It's a rich olive green color that tends to change in different light. Sometimes it looks more green and other times it looks more brown. Definitely a fun color, but maybe not for everyone. It is very earthy.
This table I wanted to give it a weathered wood effect! Not sure it turned out exactly like I planned in my head, but I was OK with the results.
What do you think? Weathered wood or just overly distressed?
I used a combination of Pittsburgh Gray and Young Kansas Wheat along with clear wax and aging cream. (all CeCe Caldwell's products).
I liked it...but wasn't in "love" with it.
What are your thoughts?
Ciao for now! Kellie
