How to Create a Whimsical Dresser

Fifth times a charm! With the help for this stunning floral furniture transfer!

FIVE ya’ll!  This same dresser has been painted by ME five times!

It was a trip down memory lane while we stripped and peeled the layers from the top surface of this beauty!

Dixie Belle Paint Products:

  • Moonshine Metallics in Deep Woods
  • Rusty Nail
  • VooDoo Gel Stain Tobacco Road
  • Green Patina Spray
  • Copper and Iron Patina
  • Vintage Duck Egg
  • Palmetto
  • Drop Cloth
  • Terracotta
  • Howdy-Do Hemp Seed Oil
  • Clear Coat in Satin

How To:

I chose a very unusual color pallet as the backdrop for this floral furniture transfer that I’ve been dying to use!

The colors add so much depth to the piece….but will soon present me with a struggle when applying the floral furniture transfer.

Check out those colors though…..on the left top we have Vintage Duck Egg blended into Palmetto blended into the brand new Deep Woods metallic green which is too die for!

Then the far right top is Drop Cloth blended into Terracotta blending into the brand new Rusty Nail which I love!!!!

I had this vision of aging this piece with both a crackled transfer……shading with dark wax……sanding the top after staining….and using the Patina line from Dixie Belle for both of the front legs.

I used the Copper Patina paint with the Green Patina spray on the right front leg…..and the Iron Patina paint and the Green Patina spray on the left leg.

I wanted the ends to be just as different at the front is….divided in finish from left to right.

Check out one of my Facebook live videos on this piece here!

I chose to stain the top with Dixie Belles Voo Doo Gel Stain in Tobacco Road…..and I love the sheer and natural look it gave me.

I lightly distressed it and used their Hemp Oil to both enhance and protect the finish!

I hope you love her as much as I do!  I envision her as a feature piece in someones dramatic dining room!  I think she’d make a lovely buffet/server!

Thanks so much Brandy!

Hi Brandy! We’re so excited for this video!

Make sure to use Prime Start on metal before using patina!

This is great.😍❤️

Paint hands r the best hands 🙌🏼

I just came in. Is the brown painted, or are you at the very start of a new project?

Your shows are awesome! Makes one think we can get better at it.

Sean, Brandy said you next to never get mad; you sound like my husband!

If I wanted to use the corrosive patina sprays in controlled areas such as the corners of doors, would it be best to sponge it on, brush it on or stipple it on? I want to make sure that I’m able to control where it goes on my next project.

I noticed that the spray For the patina paint had a vinegar smell. I was wondering if apple cider vinegar would cause the same reaction with the patina paint? just curious😁

My son is 17 but every year I still hide a box in the back under the tree with a Christmas bell in it. He loves it!

What a great finish for this piece. I will need to look from beginning later. Seeing your reflection on the

Evening Kollenborns!! I just love patina paint!! I can't wait to see the results!!😁💚

Don't worry Sean - we're all here and I'm sure you look lovely as usual!!😁💚

My retailer has the silver but only one step of it. I wasn’t painted when the old metallics were around so I’m not sure if I need both steps or can I use just the top coat of the silver. Any advice?

Right now it looks like an angry storm at sea! It's gorgeous <3 <3

Thank you! I absolutely LOVE these colors!

I LOVE this. I have wondered how to do patina on furniture. I can't wait to do this!!!!

Hello from Oxford MS! My Old Silver has a top coat and base coat, which are you using?

Hey Brandy and Sean!! Love the Polar Express!! Patina on the bell would be amazing!!

Yes Angie use Slick Stick on your tiles first!

Say hello and tell us where you’re from!

Slick Stick is perfect for slippery surfaces!

Definitely clean with White Lightning first!

Pam is using Sawmill Gravy tonight!

Thanks so much! Great job!

We love Woodubend!

Hi Pam & Bill!

Great tips!

Pam is painting with Sawmill Gravy!

If your cabinets are laminate or a slippery surface use Slick Stick first! If you’re worried about bleed thru, use BOSS!

Pam is using Sawmill Gravy! We love this color!

Yes I have a marble top piece I’m about to do !

Love that trim

Hey gurl!!!!

I was told never to use SS on wood and to never use SS and BOSS that true?

Now you got me singing those songs...... I'm just a bill on capitol hill is now playing through my head...LOL That little cartoon bill singing on the steps.

Oh good gosh. It was awful. The tech, not Bianca. She’s awesome. We’ll chat.

Oh bill 🤣😂

That's so PRETTY!!!!❤ I have a little table just like this!!! Now I have a good idea of what I want to do ! Thanks Pam!!!!!

Hi from Saginaw Michigan. Would love to try wood u bend.

Just repainted all my kitchen cabinets in sawmill gravy and new sleek black hardware love that color

I love these videos. I'm a visual-tactile learner, so these teach me more than a thousand how-to books.

We have a Springhill shopping centre 5 min away from me here in Melbourne 🙋‍♀️ hi

Have you done a comparison to other brands of paint, and if so, what made you decide on Dixie Belle? Tks
