Around the House with Dixie Belle Paint

Hey everyone! It’s Brandy from Brushed By Brandy! We recently bought 5 acres of land, designed a floorplan with an architect, and moved in the shell to do the finish work ourselves. It is still VERY MUCH a work in progress. However, Dixie Belle Paint Company has been used all along the way. Here is a compilation of our Dixie Belle projects around our home.

Materials Mentioned:

Patina Planters

Flanking our front doors are these topiaries in resin planters. The planters had faded over time and were uninteresting.

These planters got a makeover using Dixie Belle Bronze Patina paint with Blue Spray. Catch the process on video HERE!

My Dining Room Table

The table I really want is not in stock.  Therefore, I picked up this Restoration Hardware dining table off of Facebook Marketplace as a temporary solution. However, it was too dark for me.

The solution, Dixie Belle Best Dang Wax in white! I took advantage of the deep wood grain texture on this table and gave it a coat of white wax. The wax can be used over an existing finish. Furthermore, it found all of those deep grooves and gave a beautiful whitewashed look. Additionally, it beads up water on my table too!

My Iron Front Doors

It can’t always be new projects. Sometimes, we have to do a little bit of maintenance too. Did you know Dixie Belle Big Mommas Butta can be used on metal? That’s right, it freshens up stainless steel (think appliances), leather (think sofas), and furniture as well!

Furthermore, my iron front doors were installed early in construction and took a beating during the process.  Therefore, I used Big Mommas Butta and a wax brush to bring them back to life and add luster.

    I have an old steamer trunk that I m trying to refurbish. It’s part metal and part wood that was painted solid black. Since I can’t keep the metal from rusting, I think I’d like to do some type of patina. What is the absolute easiest way and what products would you recommend to achieve the most ‘natural’ look. I want to leave the center wood natural with something simple like tongue oil.
    Appreciate your input!
    Thanks, Cindy

    I have 2 black chests I want to redo to go on either side of my fireplace. It was white brick and I painted it with Dixie belle gravel road, driftwood and hurricanes grey, alternating colors on each brick. I call my decor in My living room coastal industrial. Lots of shells and driftwood with silver stair rails and old shrimp boat pulleys. Floors are a mocha/latte bamboo. I want to add metal sheeting to Inside of 2 chests. Can’t decide which color to use, sandbar or drop cloth. Any suggestions?

      Hi Dawn! That sounds like a really neat project! We’d recommend posting a photo to our Facebook group! There, you’ll receive ideas and color suggestions based on what your project looks like.
