Transformation and a winner!

JULY IS DIXIE BELLE PAINTS MONTH

We are so very pleased to be working with Dixie Belle paint products.    I have been playing with many of the products and have to say...WOW.




These are before photos of the end table and the coffee table I will redo with Dixie Belle paints this week.    I had used a white glaze several years ago but Dixie Belle will knock that out of the ballpark!   Sanding is not necessary but we did a light sanding due to grime or grit from the everyday use and to remove some of the whitewash.    

Below is an image from Better Homes and Gardens showcasing the very colors in our family room.   I like clean bright colors and that is the result you can get with Dixie Belle.
Seaglass, Rebel Yellow and Palmetto work so well together.



The pine pieces I am redoing have served us well, brand new in 1991 and still going strong, along with an armoire also still in use.   I love classic pieces that take on new life.   We also have my parents furniture from 1948 also in super condition, Real wood never goes out of style!

I mixed Palmetto and Clear coat to get a translucent first coat for the tops of the tables.  The base will be Rebel Yellow.   I may add some whitewash or grunge glazes after distressing the pieces.....  That is the fun to see what works with this HIGH quality, Made in the USA, water soluble, low VOC paints.

Stay tuned for the progress.
