Hey everyone, it’s Lee Ann from Creative Moments! Come with me and Revive a Curbside Find with this curbside cabinet transformation. When I saw this sweet pine cabinet posted curbside with no takers I saw the big potential and picked it up. The bead board backing and rustic look said paint me in a distressed white and let me shine.

The cabinet was staged and redone with Dixie Belle Paint Fluff and Saltwater.

Material List:

Step 1: Painting the outside!

To begin, I flipped it upside down to do the feet and underside first. I painted it in Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint Fluff and brushed it on with an Angled Mini Dixie Belle Synthetic Brush, perfect for cutting edges and covering surfaces. I flipped it over and finished all sides including the open center area.

Step 2: Painting the inside!

Once the paint was dried, I removed the inside cabinet backing boards and painted them in Dixie Belle Silk All-In-One Mineral Paint Salt Water using the Dixie Belle Scarlet Brush, which leaves a smooth finish and covers quickly. The Silk painting has a built-in primer and top coat making it a one-step paint perfect for the inside.

Step 3: Sand the edges!

Back to the cabinet outside, the painted surfaces were sanded smooth and the edges were distressed with a Dixie Belle Sanding Sponge. To seal this Chalk Mineral Paint, I used Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax Clear. I brushed it on with a dedicated Dixie Belle Best Dang Brush.

Step 4: Transfer time!

Finally, I wanted to add a bit of fun to this piece, so I picked the Dixie Belle Transfer Flower Child with its rustic floral charm. The chosen pieces were cut out, placed where I wanted them, and burnished on.

I also added a bit of age and dimension to the cabinet, with Dixie Belle’s Best Dang Wax in Grunge Gray brushed on the edges and in the corners and crevices.
