How to Create a Patina Bohemian Chest

The bohemian vibe has gotten a hold of the design world! I seriously couldn’t be happier about it. The boho style is so colorful and versatile.

This little chest is a dream piece. It’s small enough to be a nightstand, but has three drawers so it’s a perfect storage solution if you have a small space.

How To:

After cleaning with White Lightning and using BOSS, it was time to blend the boho style paint finish.

I choose Stormy Seas, Muscadine Wine, Savannah Mist, and Fluff.

I wanted a blended color blocked look so I started with the Stormy Seas on top, moved into the Muscadine Wine in the middle, and ended with Savannah Mist on the bottom. I love how beautifully they complimented each other.

As I blended, I dry brushed each color over each other to create layers. I dry brushed Fluff heavily over the Savannah Mist on the bottom and then carried it through the whole piece. It turned out gorgeous! I love the way Dixie Belle Paint blends so smoothly together.

Hello my friend!

Have you tried pairing the Flea Market Decor Magazine paint with a transfer? You should!
This dresser was painted with Birchwood and Aged Ivory from the Flea Market Decor line and accented with the vintage truck from the Prima Marketing Inc. Fresh Flowers transfer and Best Dang Wax in Brown. The top was beautifully stained with No Pain Gel Stain in Walnut.
Check out your local retailer for these goodies: http://bit.ly/finddbpretailer
