Go To The Head Of The (CeCe Paint) Class

Do you hear the noise coming from that barn?

It's like a gleeful noise with intermittent's the sound of people learning to create with CeCe Caldwell Paints!

Being excited about carrying the new CeCe paints was not enough for us; we wanted to learn everything we could about it, so we headed to a class taught by Anne Skougard, the regional distributor for CeCe Caldwell Paints. The class was held in the gorgeous Napa Valley at the beautiful Urban Barn at Sonoma Country Antiques.

We dug (or should we say "brushed"?) right in and

got to work on our lessons, learning a variety of finish techniques and textures that this magical paint can achieve!

An elegantly dressed Anne flitted around the room giving us all personal instruction on how to get the results of a finish that looks 100 years old.

We also tried our collect hands at a faux ceruse finish, and so much more!

We each made our own color charts and got a sneak peek at a few NEW colors that will be out on the market soon.

A little birdie told me you might like to see all the different colors:

So next time you're in to Room With A Past or Paris Flea Market (next opening starts TONIGHT through Sunday, April 15th!) don't forget to grab a gallon of inspiration along with a quart of CeCe Caldwell Paint!


  1. I hope you have a class in Walnut Creek in the evening or weekend. I would love to learn how to use the paint.
