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.
- Gator Hide clear coat
- Bronze Patina paint
- Blue Patina Spray
- Best Dang Wax in white
- Big Mammas Butta
- Dixie Mud in white
- Dixie Belle Paint in Coffee Bean, Buttercream, Caviar, Driftwood, Evergreen
Flanking our front doors are these topiaries in resin planters. The planters had faded over time and were uninteresting.
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.
