The Vintage Dames » CeCe Caldwell's Paints » All Natural Totally Green » Antique Marketplace of Lemoyne’s Open House – Day 1

Wow, what a day… I arrived at Antique Marketplace of Lemoyne around 9:45 and there was already a line at the door. I drove around back and unloaded about 8 cases of paint as well as my brush basket

and other necessary items. Hauled this all up two flights of steps and to my booth. Can you say workout?  I had two bathroom breaks, and 1 coffee break around 3:30 thanks to Lisa. (I think that’s her name) There was no time to eat today, many people wanted to know what I was painting with and why… they all got the long story!

I want to thank all my customers who stopped by to say hi and introduce themselves.

If you did not get in today, I will be there tomorrow painting from 11:00 to 3:00… come on by and say hello!

Today’s project…
This cute mahogany Art Deco record cabinet.


I picked this up from Bill at Northgate Antiques a couple weeks ago knowing it would be perfect for a demo… today’s the day!


Ready to start painting… a little more coffee and here I go!



I started with a pop of color on the inside… Traverse City Cherry… love this color. There were a lot of people who stopped by while I was painting.


They asked questions and even a few picked up my cute little round brush tried it.  Next, I painted the outside with Seattle Mist. This was not my original plan, it just felt right!


Last night I decided to paint the entire piece with Destin Gulf Green. I think it is so rich and very classy.
One of the best moments of the day was meeting  Lisa and Mark who hung around and helped me from 3:00 to closing. (actually they did the painting and waxing while I watched)


Lisa loved painting with CeCe Caldwell’s Paints. She was so excited about the possibilities… I felt the same way the first time I used it, and still do.  I told my husband that day, “I finally know what I want to do when I grow up… I want to  paint furniture”


… this excitement is why I am selling CeCe Caldwell’s Paints… I want to share the fun with everyone… I know if you try it… you’ll like it… better yet… you will love it!


so here she is, ready for her distressing and waxing tomorrow… check us out tomorrow for “the rest of the story”


If you have nothing to do tomorrow Sunday, Nov. 11th, come on over to Antique Marketplace and see what our next project will be… I have a Cosco step stool I want to finish… yep I am painting the metal legs and vynel seat… you can do that with CeCe Caldwell’s Paints.

Now I have to go pour paint samples, paint cards, and put together a couple CeCe Starter Gift Bags! No rest for us Paint Sisters!
