Success! You're on the list.

The first step was to clean well with Dixie Belle White Lightning. Then sand away any damaged areas, and remove the hardware for cleaning. This piece did not require priming, so we were able to move right into laying on a base coat.

Once our colors were laid on, I decided to throw a curve ball and talk about what happens when you aren’t happy with color choices and want to make a change? With Dixie Belle Paint, color changes do not need to be a worry.

Now that our new color scheme is laid on, the second coat is where we perfect the blending and get our finish just right and set it with a coat of Dixie Belle Gator Hide. I then added Black Wax to bring out the carved details.

The final step of this were the finishing touches! This includes waxing our drawer glides, oiling the drawer boxes, adding gilding waxes, etc.

The final look is a smoothly blended cinderella side table!
