Paint, Wax and China

Favourite things; old mixed with renewed.
Thifted small table, ornaments on shelf and scrapbook paper
Royal Winton pink plate, Royal Albert Brigadoon 4 cup teapot 
and demi cup and saucer on the top shelf
and Norris characters on the bottom shelf.
Old and cherished treasures that come out of their cupboard occasionally.

There is a project inside this post; 
the small table (above) was tired and a bit battered until...
CeCe came along to refresh in Vintage White.

The table was a garage sale find and painting took longer than planned because of the coloured pencil drawing on the drawer and a few small stains that appeared to be oil. The table wasn't very clean so I scrubbed and sanded (with a sponge sanding block) the drawer front, top, legs and shelf before I painted. The first coat was Vintage White CeCeCaldwell paint and as it dried I knew Kilz was going to be next, then I painted two more coats of Vintage White and two coats of (CeCe) Satin Finish wax.
Small table, with each finish used (including green masking tape).
Lined the drawer with a piece of scrapbook paper.
Here is the before and after comparison.
A sturdy little lamp or display table or perhaps just right for a coffee mug and somewhere to keep the books you are reading.

I used CeCe paint because some kind ladies opened a booth with their blog Welcome Home Decor in our local Home Hardware store. and they carry all of the CeCeCaldwell Paint and supplies. Discovered them first at The Olde Farmhouse Vintage Market in June.

  2. Very nicely done! It turned out great - and the drawer pull looks so unique - it adds a special touch to what was a boring table until you worked some magic on it!

  8. It is all just lovely. I especially love the little table. My niece sells CeCe Caldwell paints at her little shop, Rosy Revival. She also gives old furniture new life by refinishing pieces with this wonderful paint.

  10. Your table looks so good now and I love the idea of using scrapbook paper for a lining! I am definitely going to steal that idea!! I also enjoyed seeing your heron plaques. Linda

  11. Nice piece would fit in as it isn't to large a lot of work cleaning and painting, an Artist's work is never done! Those Norris characters are sure nice.

  17. Lovely little table. And it looks much better now that you've put your touch on it. The drawer pull is so funky. I just found you through Debbiedoo's. I'm your newest follower. I'd love it if you'd follow me back at www.crazythriftycrafts.blogspot.com. Thanks for sharing!

  18. I just used CeCe caldwell paint for the first time recently. For some reason I though it would cover really well but was disappointed when it didn't--so I'm heartened to read that your table took 3 coats! I did love how easy it was to sand the paint, though.

  19. I LOVE Brigadoon...one of my favorite RA patterns! And your tables turned out beautifully! Over from VTT.

  20. Great job on the table. It's always amazing to me what a coat (or two) of paint can do! Also, the pattern on the china is gorgeous.

  21. The table looks lovely, Joy. Much improved by that paint. And you've arranged such beautiful things on it. That teapot and cup are so pretty, especially against the pink of that plate. And I love those characters on the bottom shelf!
