Ornate Coffee Table in CeCe Caldwell’s Destin Gulf Green

I’m a little late to the party on this, but I just recently tried CeCe Caldwell’s Chalk and Clay Paint for the first time.  And I really enjoyed working with the product.  It’s got a nice, earthy smell, with ZERO VOC’s which is a big plus.  You can paint with it right in your house without stinking up the place.  The color palette is really to die for.  The first can I got, I went for Destin Gulf Green ( a nice, deep, rich turquoise), but my head is swimming with which to go for next time.

I started with this lovely, ornate, oval coffee table that was given to me by a lovely friend of my mother in law.

I just gave it a little cleaning and jumped right in with no priming, which is also a big benefit to CeCe’s paint line.

Another fun aspect to this paint is that you can give it a nice, natural looking distressing with just a wet rag! No sanding dust or mess afterwards!

The distressing brought out all that gorgeous carved detail.

I gave it a top coat of CeCe’s Endurance finish, which I also loved using.  It gives a really tough finish, which is especially useful on table tops or things that will get lots of use.  I think it’ll serve this little coffee table well for years to come.
