Thrifted end table, brown and Boring. In need of a makeover! Let’s paint with Dixie Belle!
1
Clean the entire piece with White Lightning.
2
In The Navy will be your base coat. You will need two even coats of paint. Brush used is a med flat
3
Medium flat brush. Dampened with water. A spray misting bottle helps keep minimal brush strokes.
4
One base coat down. Wait until dry.
5
Apply the second coat to the base. Leave the drawers for last.
6
Get ready to blend! Color used is Dusty Blue. Separate brushes for each color needed.
7
Apply the Navy around the edges of the drawer. Then apply the Dusty Blue to the middle. Blend.
8
This is the blended effect when dry. Subtle and classic.
9
I sealed the entire piece in a Matte Clear Coat. Applied with a clean brush. Two coats.
10
The Clear Coat is slightly white when applied. It dries to a clear finish.
11
Best Dang Wax in Black is applied to the edges with a brush to darken and age. Wipe back.
12
It adds a slight depth to the corners. Wax is applied after the clear coat.
13
Clean the hardware with White Lightning. Install.
14
Complete!

Stage and photograph.

Stunning blend.

Gold and Navy are perfect together.
