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!

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.
