Thrift store makeover - with Dixie Belle paint products!
1
Assess the piece. Check for needed repairs.

Clean with White Lightning to prepare for paint!

Remove hardware. Let’s paint!

Gorgeous Tree Frog Green. Dixie Belle paint has zero VOC’s and great pigment.

Added detail on the top from WoodUBend mouldings! You will need a heat gun, glue and Moulding.
6
Heat with the heat gun, add glue and adhere to the piece. Heat again to ensure that it is flat.

Using a flat medium brush apply the paint. Use a spray misting bottle to help minimize brush strokes
8
This is one coat of Tree Frog Green
9
Spray paint the hardware bright gold.
10
Let’s add the second coat to the box. Use the water bottle to keep your brush damp.
11
This is two even coats of paint
12
Seal the entire piece with Clear Coat Flat. I use a sponge to apply and keep the surface smooth.
13
Apply Best Dang Wax in Black & Brown to the mouldings. This helps define the edges.
14
Use a cloth to wipe back excess amounts of wax and blend into the green.
15
Using Gold gilding wax or Gemstone Mousse to highlight detail. I also applied around the edges.

Look at that amazing WoodUBend detail!
