How to Create a Color Washed China Cabinet

This floral ombré china cabinet is not a typical finish….or color palette for me…….and I like it!

Dixie Belle Paint Colors:

How To

Step One

Clean with White Lightning! This piece was filthy! It had years of grime and oil and a VERY musty smell.

Step Two

Apply BOSS in Clear.

Step Three

I used FIVE colors on the organic “non-blended” drippy ombré/color wash finish (longest finish name I’ve ever come up with…lol!). I started with Apricot….then proceeded with Savannah Mist, Blueberry, Holy Guacamole and ended with Collard Greens.

Watch this video for more detailed on the ombré effect!

Step Four

I highlighted with Terracotta and used it on the inside of the cabinet.

Step Five

I used Dixie Dirt in Earth to add that old world aged shaded look. Its great for adding depth without being too overpowering.

Step Six

I need to say that the furniture transfer on the bottom….Roses and Rouge by Redesign with Prima was my inspiration for this piece. I knew as soon as I saw it that I would use it on this piece. And I knew I’d be pulling every single color from it to use on one piece of furniture!

Step Seven

I used Easy Peasy Spray Wax and Clear Coat in Flat over the transfer. Its such a dainty and romantic piece now! I hope it finds its forever home with someone who loves it as much as I do!
