    Looks fantastic! You did a great job.

  2. Karen, you cease to amaze me! When can I head to SF to take paint lessons from you. I love this finish!!! You rock girlfriend!!

  3. Bliss says:

    It turned out great, and I started my morning ‘singing one of these things is not like the other’ and now ready to tackle the day with a bit of ZZ Top floating in my brain. Thanks. I think?


  4. Gorgeous!!! I can totally picture that making a beautiful statement in an entry. Great work. 🙂

  5. cassie says:

    WOW! you continue to blow me away with this awesome look you are capable of- LOVE it!

    As always… your artistry wins over and the day is saved.
    Perfect choice for the finish.
    It’s gorgeous.

  7. Nice to see I’m not the only one whose mind grabs random song lyrics for no apparent reason! That dresser is no longer Under Pressure – she’s got some nice buns!

  8. Catherine says:

    Does the genre of music effect the outcome?
    —I love reggae!
    It looks fAbulous!

  9. Sondra says:

    Haven’t tried CeCe Caldwell paint yet, but this is beautiful. How do you mix a tobacco brown glaze?

  10. Jill Flory says:

    Awsomeness!!!!! This piece should get as much attention as your dresser makeover received!!!!! I love this and I would use it in my home in a heartbeat. Job well done!

  11. This an amazing transformation, Karen! I love reading your thought process — song lyrics included!!

    I had hoped to see you today at Paris Flea Market and had brought some fabric to ask you about painting it, but my friends and I got there around 9:30 and we left before you came in. I’m wanting to paing a chair I have that is a heavy cotton with Ce Ce’s paints and wondered if you had done that yet.

    LOVE this! I love that color to pieces! How did you get that finish? Did you paint then use 2 different types of wax? And how do you use wax? I am so jealous of your client!
