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).

Hi there !

Can’t wait to see it all finished. It’s beautiful!

I just got my gold leaf in today. I'm really excited to try this!!😁😁😁😁

So excited to see you do this piece!!

I love my waxes!!!!!😁😁😁😁❤

I use the Frog yellow tape due to the pulling off of the paint. Have had no problems with it so far.

Hi Melissa! And Dixie Belle!

The best part of gold leaf is dusting it off and watching it flurry away 😍

Do you seal over the gilding wax when finished?

Gorgeous!!!!❤❤❤

I wish everyone would put what paints and top coats they have used. I know it would make a difference and people like me, would buy more paint to get that particular look.

Gorgeous !!!
