How to Paint with Spanish Moss

Learn how to layer paint and products to achieve this gorgeous Spanish Moss layered vintage dresser makeover!

Even after all these years of painting furniture, I had a nervous-excitement starting this dresser because I really wanted to do it justice.

I don’t often work on ‘perfect-as-is-pieces’ like this. This dresser required NO repairs, NO fill, NO adjustments. It was a pick-up and paint project.

How To:

I started by giving this tallboy a good cleaning with White Lightning and then layering on Stormy Seas and Terracotta.

After the first 2 layers dried, I applied two coats of Spanish Moss.

To add extra depth to the drawers, I used Van Dyke Brown Glaze on the inside of all the drawer frames.

I used a few Prima products as well: the Royal Ann Garden Stick and Style Stencil and the Lavender Fields Transfer.

Hello!!!

Big Mama’s Butta is available in 2 scents Suzanne’s Garden and Orange Grove!

Hey Linda! Great idea to use it with Aubergine! No Pain or VooDoo Gel Stain would be a great idea. Tobacco Road is an earthy brown water-based stain!

Make sure to buff the wax completely and allow to cure for 7 days!

Wow! The Big Mama’s Butta really brings that wood to life!

Big Mama’s Butta is a Dixie Belle Paint product!

Reta is using a larger round Dixie Belle Synthetic Brush!
