A Dresser and A Workshop

I haven't been very present here as of late.  

My "real" job kept me very busy the end of November and all of December. Then you throw the "sick bug" (really he stayed for 8 weeks) that would NOT GO away. Along with the holidays and it didn't leave much productive energy for anything else.

However, it's a New Year  (by the way, Happy "Belated" New Year, I didn't even get that posted) and the "sick bug" has decided he is bored with my family and moved on.
Thank Goodness!
Slowly I am starting to feel like myself again and projects are starting to fly!

I finally was able to get to a dresser that had been in my garage for almost 3 months.  
Here is a sneak peek!

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter, you probably have already seen the end result, but I will do a full post on the before and after later this week.  

I am in love with this color.  It's a custom mix!
It reminds me of sugar maple leaves in the fall; the perfect burnt orange.

This past Saturday, I held my very first CeCe Calwell's - Rehab Your Rubbish - Paint Made Easy 101 Workshop!  I was so blessed to have the most amazing women participate in this class.  I absolutely adored each and every one of them.   

Thank you for making my first workshop such a successful and memorable one!

I thought I would share a few photos of the day!

This is our new studio space.  Still LOTS to be done, but it's a great start!
This is only half the group, but they are working hard!  Need to get a display case to the left.  One for storage and two to cover the booth that butts up next to us!
Lisa speeding up the drying process.
Lisa and Dianne drying away! This didn't last long. Shortly after this picture was taken, we blew a fuse and didn't get it fixed before the class was over. Too many dryers going at once. Oops!
Kate showing off her work!  Vintage White and Cinco Bayou Moss
Linda burnished this until it shined!  Literally...I have never seen our wax so shiny.
 This group was an amazing group of ladies. It was fun to see all the different color combinations and the individual techniques that came out. 
It was a wonderful Saturday afternoon. Thank you for sharing it with me!

So I will leave you with this!
  Ciao for now!


  1. What an informative and wonderful paint workshop! I enjoyed each and every moment and had a blast. Kellie, you did an amazing job of teaching us the application processes involved with the CeCe Caldwell products. I cannot wait to start on my next project! Thank you so much for a great Saturday!

    1. Dianne!

      Thank you so much for your very kind comments! I am so glad to hear your positive feed back. I really couldn't have asked for a more fabulous bunch of ladies. Please be sure to post your next project to Facebook or at least email your pictures to me so I can post. It will be fun to see what you all create. Blessings! Kellie
