In the book, The Flinch by Julien Smith, is the quote “It isn’t the start that matters. It’s the finish line.” The same can be said about restyling furniture. It doesn’t matter if the piece started out as an abandoned curb pick or a lovely, well-bred piece of casework which needs a little bit of paint magic to return it to its deserved place in a home….it is the finish that matters.
This Friday I picked pieces with award worthy paint jobs. While none were painted with CeCe Caldwell’s Paints products, all the looks can easily be achieved with our paints, glazes and metallic waxes.
The first piece is a headboard. While some may be initially drawn in by the beautiful metallic details, it was actually the black paint that caught my eye first. The black final coat subtly reveals a lighter undercoat. The variegated metallic on the trim brings out the undercoat perfectly.
The next Friday Favorite pick is a charming side table. If I had to name this piece, I would call it Grace. It is glamorous but not pretentious. That was the same as I always regarded Grace Kelly.
Understated elegance is the way I would describe the final pick. It reminds me of the colors you would see when first waking from a dream about Van Gogh’s Starry Night painting. The colors were layered on perfectly.
I hope today’s picks inspire you to pick up some CeCe Caldwell’s Paints products and cross your own finish line.
