Mid Century Make Over

CeCe Caldwell's Cinco Bayou Moss and California Gold is what I used on this Mid Century Chest Make Over with Endurance for the finish. I used Modern Masters Metallic paints for the Zinnia stencil. And on the hardware I updated with gold leaf. Mid Century furniture is very hard to find but this chest was in near perfect condition and I couldn't wait to paint it! The weather here in Texas has been perfect for painting so I took advantage and finished this piece today. A few weeks ago I posted a picture of this chest before I painted it and it was a light wood color and the hardware was a dull worn metallic. I'm posting the "before" picture at the end of this post. If you have a painting project but are not sure where to start I can help you. Email me or stop by and let me help you get started. 
I am reaching a milestone with my blogging and for those of you who follow me stay tuned for a giveaway very soon. More details to come on what I will giveaway and if you are not a follower then join so you can participate in the fun!
