Wax Video on Emerald Green Dresser

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?

    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

    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
