How to Paint with Midnight Sky

For today’s post I’ve done something I don’t do very often, I’ve painted a matching set.

It’s a little hard to judge the scale of this piece by that photo, but that headboard is 73″ tall!

Dixie Belle Paint Products:
How To:

The foot board needed a little work after I got it home. Once the repairs were complete, I sanded the piece lightly and then painted it with two coats of Dixie Belle’s Midnight Sky.

Dixie Belle has two shades of black, Caviar and Midnight Sky. I’ve used quite a bit of the Caviar, and I do love it. It’s a deeper black than the Midnight Sky.

I used the Midnight Sky on my piano and was drawn to its slightly more subtle shade, so I decided to go with that on this set. Although honestly, you can’t go wrong with either color.

Once the paint was dry, I sanded the bed to distress and then added a top coat of Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in Black.

For the dresser, I did the same paint and wax combination. Then I cleaned up the original hardware and put it back on.

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.

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
