CeCe Caldwell's Paint Projects to Inspire!

I'm stuck in a rut with painting furniture because I've been painting walls in my house. I was looking back through pictures of furniture I've painted to get myself motivated and inspired.

Give the Gift of CeCe Caldwell's Paint this Holiday Season

A few years ago for Christmas my mom gave me the gift of CeCe Caldwell's paint and it has been a great gift!  I was so in love with it I'm now a CeCe Caldwell's retailer in Lansing, MI.

I Love to Paint.

Hello to my fellow crafters, artists, painters, upcyclers, and junkers.  After meeting CeCe Caldwell herself this last weekend and hearing her speak I've been thinking a lot about my career and passion as a furniture painter and retailer of this amazing paint brand. 
If some of you have been following along for a few years, you'll know I was passionate about CeCe and used it daily before I started selling it at my booth at The Mega Mall.  It was a very simple choice for me to want to start selling to others and I feel I'm a great person to represent the brand.

Along the way some crazy things happened and I hadn't heard back about becoming a retailer of CeCe Caldwell's.  I was very sad:(. 
I happened to be searching for a fireplace mantel and came across Vintage Barn Market who was promoting a new seller of paint, Holly of Tattered Gypsy in Blissfield, MI.  The brand she was selling was van Gogh.   Holly impressed me with her creativity and knowledge of painting.   At that point I decided to apply to sell that brand since CeCe didn't seem to be an option.  After I was set to sell van Gogh, I heard back from CeCe Caldwell's and my CeCe paint was on it's way.
For the past 6 months I've been selling both brands, and actually struggling with how to make that work.  Since CeCe is my first passion, I've decided to sell CeCe Caldwell exclusively.  After meeting CeCe I trust her and believe in the products even more than I did before.  (and you all know I was obsessed:)

This was my first piece I did in Memphis Blue.

I'm learning something new every day about combining my passion and career into one.  If you have any tips for me or words of encouragement, I would love to hear from you!
Please visit my shop at Mega Mall in Lansing, MI to see the CeCe Caldwell's paint brand in action and buy a quart of happiness!
