How to Paint with Midnight Sky

For today’s post I’ve done something I don’t do very often, I’ve painted a matching set.

It’s a little hard to judge the scale of this piece by that photo, but that headboard is 73″ tall!

The foot board needed a little work after I got it home. Once the repairs were complete, I sanded the piece lightly and then painted it with two coats of Dixie Belle’s Midnight Sky.

Dixie Belle has two shades of black, Caviar and Midnight Sky. I’ve used quite a bit of the Caviar, and I do love it. It’s a deeper black than the Midnight Sky.

I used the Midnight Sky on my piano and was drawn to its slightly more subtle shade, so I decided to go with that on this set. Although honestly, you can’t go wrong with either color.

Once the paint was dry, I sanded the bed to distress and then added a top coat of Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in Black.

For the dresser, I did the same paint and wax combination. Then I cleaned up the original hardware and put it back on.
