I wanted to add extra character to the back of this cabinet. I unscrewed the back to make it much easier to work with.
Dixie Belle Paint does not require you to sand prior to application, however the top of this piece was not smooth. I used my Surf Prep sander to smooth the imperfections on the top of this cabinet. Therefore, my finish would be flawless. Then, I sprayed the cabinet in Fluff Chalk Mineral Paint.
I know by now you are surprised that I used a shade of white for this piece. You didn’t think I would finish this piece without adding color did you? This DIY apothecary cabinet had to have some color!
I needed to add some distressing to this piece as well. I have to tell you my new favorite hand sanding pads to use are the Surf Prep Rad Pads. They are super high quality, you can cut them or fold them in half. They last a long time also. You can reuse them for quite some time.
I finished off the entire piece with Easy Peasy Spray Wax. Let me know what you think!
