Warm Wood Grain

The wood grain is what made this piece stand out to me and it is what makes it a showstopper as a finished piece. I’m so thankful to have gotten an order for it that includes keeping the grain as a feature rather than painting it. This piece will become a bathroom vanity in a new bath remodel.

Materials list:

  • Dixie belle white lightning
  • 3M sandpaper
  • Dixie belle paint in driftwood, chocolate, and gravel road
  • Dixie Belle synthetic bristle brush in oval medium
  • Varathane weathered wood accelerator for wood portions
  • Dixie belle gator hide

One of my favorite staging techniques is using dramatic artwork to set the feel of a piece, and this canvas definitely does just that! With some towels and a wash pitcher of flowers, this one is bathroom ready!
