How to Paint with Drop Cloth

This lovely antique buffet received a total makeover!

Wonderful White Paint:

FluffΒ is a serene, soft white with a slight gray undertone. Use Fluff for traditional or modern style projects.

You can also pair this paint color with a dark wax or glaze to create distressed farmhouse furniture. Fluff is a crisp color, perfect for any room in your home!

Drop Cloth is a stylish linen white with a touch of warmth. This stunning color is our most popular because its perfect for any palette!

Whether it’s in your living room or kitchen, use Drop Cloth to create a comfortable space. This neutral color is an easy way to refresh your home.

How To:

Step One:

The loose veneer was stripped away and the entire piece had to be sanded down, but finally after lots of prep it was ready for a bright, fresh new look.

Step Two:

The buffet was hand painted in high quality Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint starting with a base of Drop Cloth, the perfect off white.

Step Three:

I then blended in highlights of Fluff and shaded using Gravel Road.

Step Four:

The lovely trim details were glazed using Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in Brown to add some extra dimension.

Step Five:

Last but not least it was sealed with their Clear Coat in Satin for some extra protection and shine!

    This has been so helpful! I wondered which brushes you used for each of the processes? Thanks!!! I’m inspired and want to place an order once I know everything I need.

      Hi Sandi, we’re so glad you’re enjoyed this post! We recommend getting the Dixie Belle synthetic brushes for blending. The flat medium and mini are our most popular. Check them out here: It depends on personal preference, but many painters use a different brush for each color and then a separate brush for blending the colors together. Hope this helps. Happy painting! πŸ™‚
