How to Paint with French Linen

Hi everyone, Denise from Salvaged Inspirations here!

This gorgeous headboard was painted with a match made in heaven color combo.

I’m always thrilled when I find a new winning combo I can share with you – like with today’s French Linen Headboard!

How To:

I purchased this bedroom set off FB Marketplace and all the pieces were flawless. It’s a real treat to work on pieces that don’t require any veneer repair, Bondo patching or funky odor intervention. This is one of those pieces — just pick a color and paint!

Dixie Belle sent me a box of goodies which included French Linen and Sawmill Gravy. When I saw these gorgeous colors I knew they’d harmonize beautifully.

With all this scrolly detail, French Linen seemed an appropriate choice.

I’m totally in love with this bed. It’s SO French Country and elegant!

Head over to Salvaged Inspirations here for more details on this painted piece!

    This is the most gorgeous color pairing I’ve seen yet!!! This is the exact look I want for my bedroom furniture which is now that 90’s orangish wood color, it’s beautiful furniture but desperately needs to be updated! I’m so glad I saw this, now I just need Dixie Belle to send me the box of goodies I need to duplicate this look!!!

    What is Satin Clear Coat?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Marie, Satin Clear Coat is a water resistant polyacrylic that will also add a layer of protection to your painted furniture. Hope this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

Let's paint with Sam and Luanne from Rustic Journeys. They have made a custom color mix called "Blue Spruce" --- combine equal parts of Stormy Seas, Dusty Blue, and Mint Julep.
Order yours here: http://www.dixiebellepaintcompany.com/shop/?aff=11
The top is a light coat of the No Pain Gel Stain in Picklin White over the existing finish.
Next week we will protect with Gator Hide on the top, Satin Clear Coat on the body and spruce up the original hardware with a Moonshine Metallic in Steel Magnolia.

Hi Sam and Luanne!

If your project has a slick surface like glass or laminate, use Slick Stick before painting

Can I just say I got every pot of paint I purchased from you back home whilst visiting in one piece & I am now very proud to be a premier Dixie Belle paint stockist in the UK myself. x

We do 🇬🇧 used slick stick this week, amazing on a melamine desk

Hey you know what might be cool with that color for Christmas is adding some of the metallic colors 😊❤️

It’s a beautiful 72 here in Vegas. Loving it.

It truly is amazing how far the DB paint goes.

Wish I lived near you would love to visit your store 😀

I used Dixie Bell Paint last week for the first time and I love it coming from Lake Charles Louisiana

What have you done to the top of the unit?

Love the idea of painting it the color of a blue spruce tree 🌲. Here in Bemidji MN we have them all
