Create Folk Art Furniture

Hey its Crys’Dawna from Bella Renovare!

Bone inlay furniture and folk art furniture styles are some of my favorite!!! I wanted to mesh these two styles together for a fun boho, eclectic style!!!

How To:

This piece is pretty standard so it makes it easier to get more eclectic with. It did have a shiny finish so I scoff sanded with my Rad Pads by Surf Prep and then cleaned with my Dixie Belle White Lightning. I also stripped down the top of the console table with my Surf Prep Sanding System.

Then, I painted the face of the doors and inset of the sides using Bunker Hill Blue. I mixed Rustic Red and Bunker Hill Blue with Sea Spray. Learn how to mix your Sea Spray with paint in this blog.

I have been super into mixing custom colors lately. I mixed a 1:1 mix of Colonel Mustard and Holy Guacamole for this cool Dijon Mustard Color. Once I had this color mixed, I painted over the base coat that was completely dried. Then, decoupage. I used Satin Clear Coat with the rice paper.

For the bone inlay inspired stencil, I used Sawmill Gravy and the Dixie Belle French Tip brush to “Dab” the stencil. Once I was done putting paint on the stencil, I pulled the stencil off while it was still wet. I repeated the process across the entire furniture piece.

For the top of the piece, I used Dixie Belle’s Bayou Moss Voodoo Gel Stain. I added the Bayou Moss on top and then added White Magic Voodoo Gel Stain one top of that. Lastly, I sealed the piece with Easy Peasy Spray Wax.
