When I saw the flat surface doors on this China cabinet, I thought of stencil texture or stencil embossing.
I’ve restyled a few pieces with raised stencils. The difference with this piece – I used a VERY large pattern on the drawer and doors and tried a totally different stenciling medium.
Dixie Belle Paint Products:
The very first step to create this look was to clean this cabinet and then paint the base color. Clean with White Lightning to get rid of dirt, grime, and grease.
I chose this Rustic Red for the cabinet and then added warm highlights with this Copper Patina Paint.
To cover the flat surfaces on this china cabinet, I used ReDesign with Prima’s Diamond Grunge Stencil. I used a large heavy duty stencil with some depth to it.
I picked Dixie Belle Mud in White as my stencil medium.
This stencil was SO large that it overlapped my doors which didn’t make it easy to tape down flat. In fact, I couldn’t make it totally flat so I held down the areas I was working on while adding the mud with a putty knife.
After the Mud was 100% dry, I used a 220 grit sandpaper to sand the design.
Finally, I used Best Dang Wax in Clear. All done!
