Have you enjoyed all the great projects the Altered Pages design team has this month with Dixie Belle Paints? I have... can't wait to see what they have in store for the last week of the month!
This month I have been on a roll!!! For some reason the sea is calling me and all of my projects have had a seas theme. Here we are today with a sea themed little treasure box.
I love the coverage of the Dixie Belle Paint on plain wood. I only put one coat of paint on this box!
Dixie Belle Paint - Sea Glass
Dixie Belle Glaze - Van Dyke
Dixie Belle Clear Coat
Wooden box 3 x 3 inches
Paint wooden box with Dixie Belle Paint - Sea Glass,
set aside to dry!
Careful not to paint the hardware!
I painted the box inside and out to give it a finished look!
Once dry apply a thin coat of Dixie Belle Glaze - Van Dyke,
wipe off any excess, let dry.
Cut a piece of Burlap the width and length of the top of the sides wooden box lid, adhere with a liberal amount of Dixie Belle Clear Coat. Since this box is 3x3 inches. I cut 13 inches of burlap, I had an inch over lap in the back. Let dry.
With Tacky Glue apply bits of Gold Leafing, let set, them apply a light layer of Dixie Belle Clear Coat.
I takes a good day for all the glue and Clear Coat to dry.
Once dry, your box can be used for gift giving or home décor!
