That’s right! 3 simple steps to achieve a coastal, summer inspired furniture transformation.
The first step is to clean your furniture with White Lightning. Mix two tablespoons of White Lightning with one gallon of hot water. Now your solution is ready! Grab a lint-free cloth, give your piece a good wipe. Then rinse piece with clean water and allow to dry. White lightning is especially great for cleaning and prepping greasy kitchen cabinets before painting. You can leave the remaining solution is a spray bottle for future use.
Now that your piece is clean and ready to go, select your favorite Dixie Belle Paint color and get ready to add Sea Spray. Sea Spray is a texture additive that is used to create a chippy, textured, weathered look! One bag of Sea Spray is enough for 64 oz. of paint, so make sure to seal tightly and store in a dry place for future use.
Using the scoop that is included add two level scoops of Sea Spray to 8 oz. of Dixie Belle Paint. You should have a thick, brownie batter-like consistency. Grab your paint brush because the fun is about to begin. Randomly begin to dab and swoosh the bristles to form crests and peaks in the paint. Once the paint begins to dry gently brush downward to slightly calm the peaks and create texture. Now you have a beautiful piece that looks like it’s been exposed to the elements. You may choose to lightly sand for a smoother texture. If you would like a multi-color to look you can simply add another Dixie Belle Paint color, no Sea Spray needed, and then sand for a chippy appearance.
