Happy Late Monday!! I spent the day cleaning out my garage…(again) Apparently this is a multi step task, but I think I may have reached the final step today….Sharing tomorrow at Trashy Tuesday.
Instead of going metallic, you can read about that cool technique HERE. I went black/grey and sophistacted. I used CeCe Caldwell’s Vermont Slate and VERY black Beckley Coal. Both of these colors are beautiful on their own, but mixed together, oo la la! Très magnifique!
I kept two brushes handy. I started with the top and brushed a liberal amount of Vermont Slate, then went over it and blended it with Beckley Coal while the Vermont Slate was still wet. It seemed a little too plain on the top, so I added one of my favorite graphics from The Graphics Fairy. I used a simple Carbon Paper Transfer method. I printed the graphic, then used Carbon paper underneath to trace it onto the table. I then used a White Paint Sharpie to fill it in. When it was completely dry, I lightly sanded the entire piece and sealed it with my favorite 100% natural CeCe Caldwell’s Clear Wax.
The Sofa Table came and went at this weekend’s Paris Flea Market Sale. I love this finish, and will most definitely be using these two CeCe Caldwell colors together again. They are très compatibles.
