Wax Video on Emerald Green Dresser

Pantone named Emerald Green the Color of the year for 2013

Well you can imagine my excitement then, when I saw the first case of CeCe Caldwell’s Emerald Isle Paint on my pallet.

I’m sure the guy on the dock thought I was totally goofy when he saw me beam from ear to ear.  After we offloaded the pallet, I grabbed a dresser from the workshop and busted into a can.

In this picture the paint is drying, the drier parts are lighter.

This is what it looks like after a coat of Emerald Green sealed with Clear Wax.


You can see how I applied the wax in this video


I decided I wanted to antique it with dark wax.  You can see the difference where I’ve applied it.

This isn’t a very good picture, it looks all funky because the dark wax isn’t completely dried.  I was losing light, so I’ll try to get some better pictures tomorrow.

I think the close up shows it best.

Well, what do you think?  Do you have somewhere you can add a splash of color?

  1. Boy, Shelly! That is a great looking piece. I would have said that Emerald green was not my color (in decorating) until I saw the subtlety of this piece. It looks GREAT! xo Dana

  2. Shelly, love it with the dark wax and the distressing. The close up really give a feel for the color. Thanks so much for sharing this dresser at Silver Pennies Sundays! x

  3. It’s a bit late and I’m not the best on the computer but this article was called ” CeCe Caldwell’s Emerald Green Dresser & Wax Video”. Am I missing something I couldn’t find the wax video. I love the colour and the dresser but was looking forward to the video for the extra help. karen
