Did you see the post Allison did recently about the new pink and coral that Cece is carrying? Well, back before these colors were out in November, I had a friend who wanted a dresser painted pink for her daughter’s room. There were a million different colors, or shades, of pink to choose from…but we settled on a mix of two Cece Caldwell colors…Traverse City Cherry and Simply White.
Another friend was getting rid of this piece, so we decided to transform it from all boy to all girl.
I’d like to tell you there was an exact mix that I used when mixing the two. However, it was more a trial and error by starting with a small amount of red and adding till I achieved the color I wanted.
One tip that I will give you, from my artist background, is when mixing colors you always add in the darker color to the lighter color. It’s always a lot easier to change the lighter color than it is the darker.
So, I began pouring Traverse City Cherry in till I achieved a raspberry color that I thought would pop against her light blue walls. And to finish it off, we added some beautiful mercury glass knobs that we picked up at Pier One.
