A Florence Spring Crate


The color Florence just makes me happy...


The Annie Sloan chalk paint color Florence is a beautiful, 
bright, teal green. The perfect color for spring!

Today I built a little crate using repurposed
parts from other projects...


I knew right away the perfect color for this crate was Florence...


I left the handle natural, then gave the whole crate
a coat of CeCe Caldwell's dark wax...
I'm not partial to any paint company, I just know what works!


CeCe Caldwell's dark stain is oily until it dries, it goes on 
smoothly and really gives colors as well as natural wood
a beautiful aged appearance.


This crate will be sporting natural colored 
Easter grass this season filled with dark chocolate eggs!


My local retailer for CeCe Caldwell paint and wax is

  5. Florence is a happy color....and a cute paint color name. I am glad you told me about your camera. I have to keep things simple on the photography side since I, like you, would probably rather build something instead of read directions to an expensive camera. I have ADD when things get technical. Have a great Easter!
