How to Use Rusty Nail

Rusty Nail is just one of the most recent colors released by Dixie Belle Paint.

It is a cross between a red and an orange color. I think its a fabulous boho color, kind of a dark coral if you ask me. It is one of those colors I have been on the hunt for lately!

How To:

This piece I did was an old dresser I picked up and it really needed a makeover… It was the typical cherry wood style…. so yes, a coat of “Boss” on it to block the tannins…

After my coat of BOSS in Clear dried, I used some Caviar on the top, and I applied 2 coats. Next, The base of this dresser I painted in the new Rusty Nail and in the center area I applied some Terracotta.

After some water on my brush and a little blending I achieved the look I was looking for!

The knobs were really old an they needed a little more pizazz… so what better then to add some Patina….

On these knobs I used Bronze and the Green Patina spray. First, you apply a light coat of Bronze paint and let that dry and add another light coat. Then while it is wet you spray it with the green activator.

Its super easy to use. I let them dry and added a light coat of wax to seal them.

Merry Christmas to you and your family, from me in outback Australia hope you enjoy your time together. Please set aside some prayers for us out here, we are in severe drought and the country seems to be on fire. thank you, you are a huge inspiration for me XXX🙏🙏🙏

Incredible how you can pick up a paintbrush freehand and your artwork looks like a billion dollar piece of art ...The Lord has blessed you with such a beautiful talent ♥️ This piece is a big winner !!!! Great work , Carolyn

Coffee Bean is a great color. I used it as a wash with two other Dixie Belle paints on a table top. I always get questions as to how many colors of stain I used to achieve the look. It really looks stained, not painted.

Amazing brushes and excellent quality paint!

So glad you didn’t give up on it! I love that you made it a story for each panel. Great job Bethany!

Trying all different styles atm, I was always French country, French Provincial. I am about to try an image transfer as you continue to inspire me with your amazing pieces.

Wishing you and all of your family a very Merry Christmas. God bless you and your family. Prayers continuing for all of you.

That color completely ties it all together for me, looks amazing.

Blended coastal colors & farmhouse neutrals are my favorites.
