Dixie Belle is for Furniture AND MORE!

The beauty of Dixie Belle paints is.......



WATER SOLUBLE, EASY CLEANUP AND BEST OF ALL...
MADE IN THE USA

STAY TUNED FOR THE FINISHED TABLES I HAVE WORKED ON, FIRST COATS ARE FINISHED AND WAXED.   MORE WORK TO DO, DISTRESSING WILL BE DONE.

THIS WAS HOW I STARTED, LEAVING PREVIOUS PAINT IN SPOTS AND IN OTHERS, SANDING IT DOWN TO BARE WOOD TO GET AN AGED FEELING.





 progress..................


I used two coats of Palmetto mixed with matte clear coat (3 to 1 ratio) for the top and Buttercream mixed with matte clear coat (3 to 1 ratio) for the legs.   I did this to create a translucent coverage, as I wanted the worn wood to show through.


Each paint layer takes only half an hour or less to dry, depending on your humidity.





The wax provides a beautiful protective luster.

The top was then waxed with clear Best Dang Wax, twice.   I used cheesecloth to rub the wax onto the surface.   The wax is set in 1 hour but I allow it to cure overnight before using the surface.

I then started sanding the edges and will do more distressing, plus add a glaze to the legs.  Not sure if it will be whitewash glaze or grungy glaze.   I will play with it and find out.    The beauty is you can always change it!
