Dark wood stand transformed with CeCe Caldwell's Simply White

This is a project I actually worked on in the summer of 2012.
I'm just getting around to posting about it.
Procrastination?
Never heard of it.

Anyway...
I bought this cute little stand at a garage sale.

I thought it was really interesting because it could do this...
Ya I know. 
Cool huh!

Now just so you know, I worked on this project long before I became a retailer for CeCe Caldwell's Paints. I was just a beginner and was doing a lot of things the hard way.
Like sanding.

Moving on...
After sanding, I dry brushed CeCe Caldwell's Simply White on the legs and around the base that holds the box top.

The top was also painted with Simply White and then "sanded" back. 
Then I worked in some CeCe Caldwell's Dark Aging Wax over the whole piece.

I wasn't sure I would like it with the two different techniques but it came out very interesting.

Not bad for a beginner.
