“Laurie my tables turned out very nice. Thanks for the encouragement to do it. Love the Dixie Belle chalk style paint burlap color with the dark wax.”
Clean your piece (furniture, lamp, picture frame, etc) to remove dust and grime. Soap and water with a damp rag will do just fine. Then paint and distress (if you like).
One of the nice thing about Dixie Belle chalk style paint, low odor, low voc, so painting can be done inside. Dixie Belle Paint has superb adhesion qualities which allow you to skip the sanding and priming prep work required of other paints. Using 150-220 grit sandpaper, sand the edges, high points and area where there would be normal wear. Dixie Belle Paint will simply fade away. A large jar will cover a large size dresser and 2 nightstands, the small jar, a coffee and 2 end tables. Dixie Belle chalk style paint is thick and adding small amount water as you paint, is recommended. Doing that will also make it last longer!
Dixie Belle chalk style paint is very thick and a little goes a long way. The longer the lid stays off, the thicker it will get. If you’d like it thinner, no worries, just add a little water and stir. Add too much water? No worries, just leave lid off and it will thicken up. Whatever consistency you desire, Dixie Belle Paint will work for you!
Dixie Belle Painting will be the easiest and most enjoyable painting you have ever done!
