CeCe Caldwell Chesapeake blue chair

Part of my CeCe Caldwell rep paint package was a new to me color called Chesapeake blue. When I opened it and saw the grey blue color it reminded me of a vintage color like old denim. To showcase it I paired it with a vintage hardwood chair I purchased awhile back.
This solid chair is stamped the "Samson" chair manufactured by The Bentwood Chair & Table Co, you could see at least 5 paint colors it had gone thru since its original state. FIVE relovings, if only it could talk and tell the stories of it's adventures. This is the part that draws me to old pieces for sure, the history they store.
 saw on goes the paint in two coats
the bottom gets a good power sanding too to clean up the crazy paint layers and grime to reveal the gorgeous hardwood this solid little chair is made of
then it gets heavily distressed with a power sander, this is not my usual look but like to get out of my comfort zone now and then so why not make this vintage chair look updated but still in character
 A couple coats of clear wax seal the paint up and give this chair years more life
 It also had a sweet pad which got a good washing and pairs well with the new color too





 I showed it here with my recently finished table in CeCe Caldwell vintage white, what a great look. You can see more of my one of a kind pieces at Creative Moments Facebook page too. Thanks again to CeCe Caldwell Paints for allowing me to be one of your paint reps!

  2. That is a lovely color! And I too like when I find layers of paint on a piece, gives me an idea of how many previous lives it has had. Thanks for linking up to our party!
