How to Paint with Drop Cloth

I found this fab washstand at a garage sale and knew it was in need of some paint.

I used Dixie Belle’s Drop Cloth for the body as well as a Prima transfer.

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:

After cleaning with White Lightning, I painted two coats of Drop Cloth.

Then, I used the smaller version of the Seeds Prima transfer.

So, I also stripped the top of this piece in the beginning. I have to confess I did a rather imperfect job of it and I had trouble eliminating some of the stains.

So I decided to try using white wax on it to help mask some of those imperfections.

It’s definitely still not perfect, but I still think it looks pretty.

This washstand had a fairly heavy grain to the wood which really catches that white wax.

You guys are probably getting tired of seeing my clay pots, but I’m digging the ‘gardening’ theme these days (pardon the pun).

Instagram post 17956354792291177 Hey you all! Dixie Belle has handed me the keys to their Instagram 💃💃💃! So for the next couple days I’m going to be sharing my favorite furniture makeovers and tips with you ❤️. I’m going to take a moment to introduce myself! I’m Leah of @leahnoelldesignco and I’m blessed to be on the Dixie Belle Brand team! I love painting furniture in multiple different styles. I get bored easy so I like to change it up a lot! 
I started Leah Noell Design Co out of my love for the quality that antique, vintage, and hand crafted furniture offers. Growing up my parents furnished our home with antique furniture. So naturally when I got my own home I decided that I would only buy brand spanking new furniture!! 😤....Until 3/4 years later did that brand new from the store furniture fall apart. While my parents (you know that were so primitive having antiques 😉) still had the same furniture in their home for 30+ years. 
That’s where my passion stemmed from! My mission is to show you that you can have great quality furniture with a design / paint finish that you love!! You can really brighten up any space in your house with a little bit of paint and an imagination! 
Here’s the thing....I love to paint. I love to share. I love to promote and stand with other entrepreneurs that work with their hands and hearts to share their craft with the world. It’s my passion to bring you quality furniture or just inspiration to do your own! Whichever is more you, a DIYer or a buyer, I’m happy you’re here!! In celebration of this takeover I will be giving away $100 worth of Dixie Belle Paint! Head over to the @leahnoelldesignco For details 💙. #colormovement #dixiebellepaint #chalkpaintedfurniture #artisanhome #furnitureflipper #newpaintcolors #easypeasypaint #furnitureartist

It is not necessary to clear coat before apply Voodoo Gel Stain, but Sam & Luanne find it easier to move the stain and take away any areas you don’t want to stain when using clear coat first.

The colors he used were French Linen, Sawmill Gravy & Antebellum Blue 😍

Love the idea of a coffee station!

Very vintage-y! Love it 😍

Hi Luanne & Sam!

The smallest details really do bring the piece together!

Sam prepped this piece with White Lightning & Slick Stick!

Thank you both! Love these live tutorials ❤
