Hi everyone! It’s Tracey from Tracey’s Fancy! This primitive yet charming blue shaker cabinet belongs to one of my local clients. First, she asked two things for the makeover: (1) for it to be blue and white. (2) For the inside of the doors to be painted as she leaves it propped open.
Additionally, she left me with a few small pieces of “flo blue” dishware. This helped me in choosing the blue tones for the piece.
- BOSS in Gray
- Cotton Chalk Mineral Paint
- Bunker Hill Blue Chalk Mineral Paint
- Yankee Blue Chalk Mineral Paint
- Cobalt Blue Chalk Mineral Paint
- In The Navy Chalk Mineral Paint
- Floral Silkscreen Stencil
- WoodUbend WUB1726
- Satin Clear Coat
- Best Dang Wax in Black
- Chip Brush
- Houndstooth Stencil
- Gemstone Mousse in Golden Gem
- Gilding Wax in Gold
First, begin by priming the entire piece in BOSS in Gray. It’s always better to be safe than sorry.
The recessed areas of the doors are painted in the brightest and most pure white that Dixie Belle offers….Cotton. The white needed to be a China/dishware white and Cotton was perfect.
The very detailed roses and other painted designs that you see within the recess were created with the new Floral silkscreen stencils by Dixie Belle. I can’t believe the fine line detail you can achieve with these things. And better yet….they are reusable many times!! I did both sets of doors with the same stencil! The stencils work with paints and paste…..and you simply scrape the paint over the stencil with the provided spatula…..which gently pushes the paint through a very fine screen……while the surrounding stencil is adhered with its sticky side down on your project…..leaving no room for any bleed through. It’s crisp and amazing!
