Crafting, paint and furniture have taken over my home. Lol I absolutely adore your videos (I’ve watched them all!) and you have helped to inspire me so much. Oh and your store is awesome!! I’d love to visit some day! I hope to try all of the CeCe Caldwell products very soon! Thanks so much!

I would use the kit for a dog house for my dogs, I was looking for a unique way to paint it and this kit would be perfect! =) I love your videos, you are so informative and so freakin funny =)

Romney Guillot - June 1, 2014 - 12:02 am

I would use your kit to revamp my mom’s old chifforobe from when she was a little girl. Right now it’s a distressed bright yellow and is sitting on my back porch being used as a small gardner’s shed. Your kit colors would coordinate perfectly with my back porch furniture. :)

Janet Rose - June 1, 2014 - 2:40 am

LIke your videos00very entertaining and to the point. I have been trying to achieve the “gloppy” weathered look on a chest of drawers but haven’t had much luck. Your technique looks like a winner.

Susan Caldwell - June 1, 2014 - 12:06 pm

This finish would be perfect for the seat of the church pew that I am working on. Love your finished project !

Dee Spiker - June 1, 2014 - 10:57 pm

Marianela Neal - June 11, 2014 - 3:09 am

I would love to use this kit on a child’s step stool for my nephew. It would look awesome in a boy’s room.

Debi, LOVE your videos and have tried many of your techniques, I have credited you on my blog with my version of boat paint fish, Check it out if you get a chance and keep up the great work! http://www.acleverspark.blogspot.com

Angela Bright Parrish - July 9, 2014 - 1:43 am

Question? Can you use the wax on top of other types of paints? I painted a vanity with latex paint and then did acrylic decorative vines and flowers. I then applied the wax. Will this work?

I’m posting a pic of my finished project and trying to tag you in a photo and include your FB link when I type in your name but the link doesn’t come up. I suspect it’s because while I have ‘liked’ your page and am a follower, you have not ‘liked’ mine so your it will not allow me to tag you. :(

Pam Freeman - May 23, 2014 - 2:06 pm

Debi, you are SO entertaining!! I watch you when I need a pick me up. Some of your projects are too complex for me to actually do, but I love watching you!!! Thank you for your genius!

Josi Siefker - May 25, 2014 - 5:29 pm

I’m still trying to decide which piece I should do this on. I love the look! Thanks for taking the time to create the cool projects you do!
