How to Blend Paint with a Transfer

Every now and then I’ll do a furniture makeover that surprises me.

Floral transfers for furniture are becoming more and more popular so I’m embracing the trend.

Dixie Belle Paint Products:
How To:

First, I cleaned the piece really well with White Lightning.

For this finish, you will need two main colors of paint. Vintage Duck Egg and Sand Bar. Allow the first color to dry completely before applying over the second color.

Once you have applied the floral transfer to your project, use a 220 grit sandpaper to distress the edges or other areas depending on the look you want.

I recreated the background look of the floral transfer on the wood by using a dry brush method with Vintage Duck Egg and Coffee Bean chalk mineral paint.

Best Dang Wax in Brown was added over the painted areas as well as slightly overlapping the floral transfer to create a cohesive look.

Because the floral transfer will need to be sealed, I waited 2 days for the wax to completely dry.

Since the Dixie Belle wax is a water-based product, I was able to add the Dixie Belle Clear Coat in Satin over the floral transfer as well as the waxed furniture.

Thank you Debbie! You've inspired us to create more mirrors! We love the techniques you demonstrated tonight!

I'm gonna age myself here, but I LOVE drybrushing, been doing it since the years of ceramics! Always thought it would be great for furniture, decorative items, etc.

Thank you so much for showing us how you do mirrors!

Hi from Bridgeville, DE

I love it 😊

Have a blessed weekend

Hi from Macon Missouri

I bought one 2 weeks ago at a yard sale. It is beautiful. I can't wait to paint if after I finish what I'm working on now. Maybe I will get some good ideas now on what to do

Will definitely start following you!

I bet some in the navy would look good added to all the high points after you are done with that blue!! Such a beautiful color you made!!

Those scrolling leaves are called acanthus leaves. They are so classic and are gorgeous with your dry brushing! ❤️

Those details are absolutely stunning !!!!!!!!

I just mixed Manatee Gray with Dixie Belle Blue on my buffet this week. Love making new colors <3

Hi, first time watching. From Florida.

I love how the dry brushing is highlighting the scroll work.

I have a lot of mirrors like this!! This is my favorite style!
