Let the sea set you free! This buffet was given the royal treatment.

So many techniques in this gem! This overall nautical theme was achieved with layers. The first being a Driftwood design. Let’s go step by step!

Dixie Belle Paint Products:
How To:

This piece was first cleaned with White Lightning. Then 2 coats of Birchwood were applied. I then added a coat of Vintage Duck Egg followed by Voodoo Gel Stain in NEW Denim.

I used the Woodgrain Tool to create the faux wood top. Next I applied the Seashore transfers, followed by a coat of Gator Hide, to protect the transfers.

Next, I created the Driftwood look with Best Dang Wax in Brown, Grunge Gray, and White.

I then applied the Patina Paints in Iron and Copper as well as the Green and Blue Spray.

I continued the Voodoo Gel Stain in Denim down the front and sides of the piece mimicking waves. Finally, I finished the piece in Gator Hide.
