How to Paint Kitchen Cabinets

We love updating kitchen cabinets with Dixie Belle Paint!

Step One: Clean your cabinets with White Lightning.

Step Two: Use Slick Stick if the cabinets have a slick surface or BOSS if you’re concerned about bleed thru.

Step Three: Wet your brush and remove the excess water with a paper towel. It is important to keep your brush damp. Paint two light coats. To achieve a similar look to these cabinets, use Sand Bar, Grunge Glaze, and Gator Hide.

Step Four: Allow your cabinets to dry before applying Gator Hide for a water repellent finish. You can apply three thin coats. Please remember our products take 21-30 days to completely cure so handle with care! For more information on these cabinets by Pam Haskins, click here!

    Would love to learn what colors were used on the kitchen cabinets in the blog post. This is what I’d like to achieve in my home.(antique look). I will have to order from someone as no one stocks dixie belle supplies in my hometown.

      Hi Sarah, Sand Bar, Grunge Glaze, and Gator Hide were used on these cabinets! Find your local retailer or shop directly on our website: https://dixiebellepaint.com/sand-bar-chalk-paint/ 🙂

    Hello, How much sandbar did you use for all of the cabinets?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hi Lisa, we hope you will consider painting your kitchen too! When Pam paints a kitchen, she usually uses about 64 ounces or less, so two 32 oz containers of paint. Hopefully this helps. Happy painting! 🙂

    Can you wipe clean cabinets if they have the top coat of gator hide?

    1. Dixie Belle Paint Company says:

      Hey Sara,
      Yes you can but no harsh chemicals!
