First project a bedside table with shelf and drawer. Bottom is stamped May 11, 1960. Finished view below.
Cleaned then painted it with 3 coats of CeCe Caldwell Simply White Chalk Paint.
Tried a new 'finish' over the chalk paint this time - MinWax Polycrylic, water based, easy clean up, dries hard. Good finish over the white chalk paint without yellowing the white.
The little bedside table was in the 'free' area out behind a thrift store.
Second project ....
Had the paint out and the table covered with newspapers, so worked on a cute but roughly built little cupboard.
Its been around for so long I decided to try out white plus stencils. This is the finished view.
Used CeCe Caldwell Simply White Chalk Paint. Added stencilled numbers and bees with a small round sponge on a stick and CeCe Caldwell Black. Dabbed paint off the sponge a bit before using it on the stencil. Finished with Minwax Paste Finishing Wax Natural, buffed.
