Tropical Feel In Winter... Refurbished Wooden Chair with Cece Caldwell's Paint

**Though I have received compensation for this post these opinions and creations are my own.**

Recently, I had a client with an old wooden chair they loved, but I was in need of some serious TLC.  They contacted me about refurbishing their chair, because they loved what I did with the Nursery Changing Table I did many years ago. I have recreated this look a few times and this time I had the perfect color in mind Cece Caldwell's Paint Jersey Tomato. It is the perfect base for the old barn door look.  First, I sanded the whole chair to remove the old finish, but remember you can't sand to hard because you do not want to remove the age. Then it was time to paint, I applied three coats of Jersey Tomato Red.

Then I go back and fill in the dents and add texture with black and white paint.

My client choose cushions with a pretty palm tree design and even though was sunny when I was taking this picture, it was super cold out. I love the tropical feel in winter!

Cece Caldwell's Jersey Tomato is a vibrant red, it can be used like this or on it's own. Either way it is a stunning color.


Until next time!

My Dream Studio Space Designed with

As many of you know I am a lover of vintage things! Recently, I was given a box full of vintage Christmas ornaments and now I can't wait for next Christmas. I am known to pick up vintage furniture off the streets of Hoboken and carry it to my studio.  Any time a client asks for furniture advice I always say "the older the better!" Don't get me wrong, I love a good HomeGoods deal, the style of Restoration Hardware or Mitchell Gold & Bob Williams, but nothing beats a fabulous vintage furniture find in my book. 

Therefore, when I was given the opportunity to create my dream studio space furnished with vintage treasures from Chairish I was super excited!  But you know me, I can't leave something just as it is; I always have to put my RWL furniture facelift on it! To find more vintage furniture look here  and start decorating!
