Decorating with CeCe Caldwell’s
Update! I only use Debi’s Design Diary DIY Paint since publishing this post. DIY Paint is 100% Natural, Clay Based, which makes it different from every other chalk paint product. It is perfectly smooth, the colors are beautiful and cover well, even their whites. It paints like liquid Velvet. You won’t believe how good a paint brush and a can of paint can feel. It is ahmazing stuff. Check my side bar if you want to know more.
It’s no secret I have been a die hard believer, yes BELIEVER in CeCe Caldwell’s 100% Natural Chalk + Mineral paints and products for THREE PLUS years now, since they first went national. I have created a lot of projects with CeCe Caldwell’s over those years. Some of which you can check out here in Amazing things you can do with CeCe Caldwell’s Products.
One of the best things about CeCe Caldwell’s paints is how I have shared their products with my family. Because the paints are 100% natural, and so easy to use, I have often had my kids help me paint.
I have watched them discover their inner artist as they made their own creations. I have painted countless pieces inside my home, never once worrying about any chemicals I was exposing myself or my family to.
I love looking around my home and seeing the things I have created, (most of them FREE) and made over with CeCe Caldwell’s products.
Buffet converted to Media Center. Given to me by a good friend, (passed down family furniture she didn’t care for). I painted this piece in Vintage White, accented with Aging Cream and protected with Endurance.
This bookshelf holds my kids books and school papers. I found this bookshelf and converted it to something a little more substantial. This piece is painted with Traverse City Cherry and sealed with Waxing Cream.
Can you believe these are supposed to be Closet Organizers? These are put together closet organizers that I stacked and now use as semi built in bookshelves in my Living Room. These gorgeous “bookshelves” are painted with Pittsburg Grey and Vintage White, sealed with Endurance.
Now….the stairs! If you have been around here for a while, you know what a trauma the stairs were. Not because of the paint, but because of all the things I experimented with before I finally settled on just classic Black and White for my stairs. I painted my stairs and bannister in Beckley Coal and sealed with Endurance. 6 coats, yes my floors! Endurance is not rated for flooring, but I love to experiment and see how far a product will go. So far, they still look amazing and we are going on almost two years completion.
I made over this old sewing cabinet to hold my Dog’s treats and Dog stuff. I mixed equal parts CeCe Caldwell’s Kailua Coral and Jersey Tomato Red.
I made this Vintage Chalkboard just last December 2014. Check out how I mixed two greens to get this perfect Vintage Green Chalkboard color. The frame is painted with Vintage White.
And finally, my Master Bathroom Makeover. I used just about every CeCe Caldwell’s product on this room. I made new towel racks from old Dresser parts and legs from a stool I pulled out of a Dumpster.
I painted this scrap of trim with Cinco Bayou Moss and then went over it with several layers of CeCe Caldwell’s stain in Walnut Grove.
Even my floor got a major makeover. That is a sub floor! It was work, but I achieved the look I wanted and I couldn’t be happier. Several layers of CeCe Caldwell’s paints and Glaze make up that gorgeous old planked wood treatment.
This year, 2015, I have entered a new stage with CeCe Caldwell’s paints. I am thrilled to be a Paint Distributor for CeCe Caldwell’s products for the Intermountain West.

I can’t wait to get painting again and see what I can create in 2015. Do you have a favorite CeCe Caldwell’s project you decorated your home with? I would love to hear about it. Did you know they have a fantastic FB page, you can share projects there, get great advice and find out about new products.
I just finished two (yep, Dumspter Dove) projects for my daughter’s room and will be sharing soon.
