Painting Bold Color On Furniture
This little cabinet was brown and outdated. Let’s plan a bold color scheme with Dixie Belle!
1
Clean your project well with White Lightning. This deglosses the surface and removes oils and dirt.
2
Since this cabinet is a shiny faux wood material my plan is to use Slick Stick. This product is a gripper for shiny and slick surfaces.
3
Slick Stick requires two even coats waiting two hours in between. Then the product must dry for 24 hours before paint is applied.
4
Let’s go bold! Tree Frog Green by Dixie Belle is the perfect choice of color!
5
Using my mini brush I applied two even coats of paint. I use a spray misting bottle filled with water to help minimize brush strokes.
6
Dixie Belle paint colors are water based and contain zero VOC’s. Safe for painting inside your home and around pets.
7
This paint is a chalk mineral paint that has amazing pigment. It’s easy to use and perfect for furniture.
8
Let’s seal our piece. I used Satin Clear coat applied with a brush to protect my paint surface.
9
Since the Tree Frog Green is quite bold I wanted to add Best Dang Wax in Black to dull the brightness. I applied the wax and wiped back with a cloth.
10
Since this wax is water based it’s easy to remove excess from the furniture. I applied a touch of Gold Gilding Wax to the edges for shine.

Look at that bold color! Simple painting with Dixie Belle Paint products!
