Have you met my twins?
I found them on the sidewalk last week, with a sign that had my name on it! Did you know if it says “Free”, it really means, “Good Time Charlie”. Unfortunately, I can’t pick up EVERY free piece that is put out there for me, but these were too cute. Not a blemish upon them!
Emma and I worked like crazy last week. Emma painted these gorgeous twins in CeCe Caldwell’s Young Kansas Wheat. Truly, one of my favorite colors. It shows up like a Champagne color on these nightstands, but on a darker piece, can take on a completely different hue.
Once they were dry, I came in with 320 grit sandpaper to make them super smooth, and finished with 220 grit to distress them. I could have used a wet rag to distress too, but I was in an aggressive sand paper kind of mood.
I sealed them with CeCe’s Waxing Cream, which I LOVE. It is instant gratification. You only need a little bit, spread it around, then you can start buffing almost immediately for that gorgeous, glass like finish.
My twins will be at Paris Flea Market next weekend, Thursday-Sunday. If you live in the area, be sure to come by for our Haunted Warehouse Sale! Kind of like our August Parking Lot sale, but with lots of Halloween all around.
PS I really do have twins. They sat still long enough for our annual Big Chair picture (sans MIA teenage daughter with better things to do)
My Vintage twins will be visiting at these lovely parties this week:
