Painting outside the box(es)

After receiving samples of CeCe Caldwell paints from Lynette at Beaches Coastal Creations, I decided to try it on a small jewelry box that I found at Goodwill.

Painted 2 coats of Destin Gulf, followed with CeCe's amazing clear wax. Stenciled with Annie Sloan Chalk paint, Paris Grey and a touch of dark wax.

I didn't get a before picture, however, thrift store jewelry boxes just happen to be one of my (many) weaknesses!

I found this old silver flatware box at Goodwill for $2.  Sorry, didn't get a before picture....

 Painted using Annie Sloan Chalk Paint (Antibes Green, Arles, CoCo, Duck Egg, French Linen, Graphite, Greek Blue, Louie Blue, Old Ochre, Old White, Paris Grey, Provence, Versailles) and CeCe Caldwell Paints(Destin Gulf, Hershey Brown).  Waxed with CeCe Caldwell's clear wax and ASCP dark wax.  

I  love using ASCP and CeCe Caldwell Paints -  they have great colors and  are easy to use on any surface.
