How to Paint with Drop Cloth

This lovely antique buffet received a total makeover!

Dixie Belle Paint Products:

Wonderful White Paint:

Fluff is a serene, soft white with a slight gray undertone. Use Fluff for traditional or modern style projects.

You can also pair this paint color with a dark wax or glaze to create distressed farmhouse furniture. Fluff is a crisp color, perfect for any room in your home!

Drop Cloth is a stylish linen white with a touch of warmth. This stunning color is our most popular because its perfect for any palette!

Whether it’s in your living room or kitchen, use Drop Cloth to create a comfortable space. This neutral color is an easy way to refresh your home.

How To:

Step One:

The loose veneer was stripped away and the entire piece had to be sanded down, but finally after lots of prep it was ready for a bright, fresh new look.

Step Two:

The buffet was hand painted in high quality Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint starting with a base of Drop Cloth, the perfect off white.

Step Three:

I then blended in highlights of Fluff and shaded using Gravel Road.

Step Four:

The lovely trim details were glazed using Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in Brown to add some extra dimension.

Step Five:

Last but not least it was sealed with their Clear Coat in Satin for some extra protection and shine!

    This has been so helpful! I wondered which brushes you used for each of the processes? Thanks!!! I’m inspired and want to place an order once I know everything I need.

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Sandi, we’re so glad you’re enjoyed this post! We recommend getting the Dixie Belle synthetic brushes for blending. The flat medium and mini are our most popular. Check them out here: https://dixiebellepaint.com/dbp-synthetic-brushes/. It depends on personal preference, but many painters use a different brush for each color and then a separate brush for blending the colors together. Hope this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

Thank you Debbie! You've inspired us to create more mirrors! We love the techniques you demonstrated tonight!

I'm gonna age myself here, but I LOVE drybrushing, been doing it since the years of ceramics! Always thought it would be great for furniture, decorative items, etc.

Thank you so much for showing us how you do mirrors!

Hi from Bridgeville, DE

I love it 😊

Have a blessed weekend

Will definitely start following you!

Hi from Macon Missouri

I bought one 2 weeks ago at a yard sale. It is beautiful. I can't wait to paint if after I finish what I'm working on now. Maybe I will get some good ideas now on what to do

I bet some in the navy would look good added to all the high points after you are done with that blue!! Such a beautiful color you made!!

Those scrolling leaves are called acanthus leaves. They are so classic and are gorgeous with your dry brushing! ❤️

Those details are absolutely stunning !!!!!!!!

I just mixed Manatee Gray with Dixie Belle Blue on my buffet this week. Love making new colors <3

I continue to learn and appreciate all the knowledge. Thank you

Hi, first time watching. From Florida.

I love how the dry brushing is highlighting the scroll work.
