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).

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!

I love it 😊

Have a blessed weekend

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

Will definitely start following you!

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

Definitely works great on carvings! Love

Hi, first time watching. From Florida.

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

I have a lot of mirrors like this!! This is my favorite style!

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