08 Feb VIDEO – How to Wet Distress Paint
Hi guys! Happy snowy morning to ya.
The storm that’s rolling through just dumped another foot of snow on West Michigan ~ you know what that means ~ SNOW DAY!!!
No worries though, ‘cuz my cousin Matt of Pro Mow Landscaping is to the rescue!
The kids are still nestled under their heated blankets
Little do they know when they wake up, it’s operation “clean the house ‘cuz it’s another furniture painting workshop weekend” at the Andrade house.
It’s been so cold and we’ve had so much snow this week that I’ve decided to move the workshops that we normally set up in the garage to the luxury of our toasty warm living room. We only heat this part of the garage for the workshops but the part of my workshop that I keep heated year round is small ~ VERY small. It works great for a dresser but even something like a buffet is too wide for me to easily work around.
I decided to paint their bedroom furniture in our living room, OK OK, the furniture actually sprawled through our living room AND dining room when you tack on several other projects I’m working on.
Guess what? I LOVED it!! Call me crazy, but this may just be the new norm. I actually got the idea when I started painting a king size bedroom set a few days ago.
Anyway… in the middle of my makeover, I got a wild hair to show you how easy it is to wet distress CeCe Caldwell’s Paint with just a damp rag. Here goes! Never mind that it is totally unedited ~ you’re getting Shelly here, up close and personal. My hair isn’t brushed and apparently I can’t put my pj’s on right side out ~ lol! Enjoy!!
Learn How Easy it is to Wet Distress with CeCe Caldwell’s Paint
Here’s how it looks after being wet distressed
I did this right in the comfort of my living room since it doesn’t create any dust like sanding does and CeCe Caldwell’s line is completely all natural ~ 100% green.
CeCe Caldwell’s Paints are Latex Free!

Our paint is latex free which is not only great news for people with latex allergies, but is also what makes our paint so easy to distress.
You have to wet distress BEFORE you wax it because waxing seals the deal
