How to Create a Whimsical Dresser
Fifth times a charm! With the help for this stunning floral furniture transfer!
FIVE ya’ll! This same dresser has been painted by ME five times!
It was a trip down memory lane while we stripped and peeled the layers from the top surface of this beauty!
Dixie Belle Paint Products:
- Moonshine Metallics in Deep Woods
- Rusty Nail
- VooDoo Gel Stain Tobacco Road
- Green Patina Spray
- Copper and Iron Patina
- Vintage Duck Egg
- Drop Cloth
- Howdy-Do Hemp Seed Oil
- Clear Coat in Satin
I chose a very unusual color pallet as the backdrop for this floral furniture transfer that I’ve been dying to use!
The colors add so much depth to the piece….but will soon present me with a struggle when applying the floral furniture transfer.
Check out those colors though…..on the left top we have Vintage Duck Egg blended into Palmetto blended into the brand new Deep Woods metallic green which is too die for!
Then the far right top is Drop Cloth blended into Terracotta blending into the brand new Rusty Nail which I love!!!!
I had this vision of aging this piece with both a crackled transfer……shading with dark wax……sanding the top after staining….and using the Patina line from Dixie Belle for both of the front legs.
I used the Copper Patina paint with the Green Patina spray on the right front leg…..and the Iron Patina paint and the Green Patina spray on the left leg.
I wanted the ends to be just as different at the front is….divided in finish from left to right.

I chose to stain the top with Dixie Belles Voo Doo Gel Stain in Tobacco Road…..and I love the sheer and natural look it gave me.
I lightly distressed it and used their Hemp Oil to both enhance and protect the finish!
I hope you love her as much as I do! I envision her as a feature piece in someones dramatic dining room! I think she’d make a lovely buffet/server!
