Its not exact science… Mixing colors with Dixie Belle Paint.

I chose these colors because I found an interesting cabinet and I felt it needed a special color…

This piece had such fun detail and fabulous wood that it all needed to be seen… So I started with equal parts of Palmetto and Fluff (which became a gorgeous pale green) and I applied that as the base coat.

All my pieces I paint usually get the minimum of 3 colors, so the next color I wanted was something bolder, a color to do some highlighting with, so I chose Peacock with equal parts of Cobalt, a perfect darker Teal.

I added this color to all the nooks and crannies and did some color blending and even some drips.

I also added some Holy Guacamole in certain areas with some Best Dang Wax in brown. The top of this piece was in rough shape so I did quite a bit of sanding and then used some Voodoo Gel stain in Tobacco Road with a splash of Sand bar to give it a lighter wood effect. Voodoo Gel stain is water based so I used it on all of the exposed wood trim. I sealed this piece with Best Dang Wax in clear.

The hard part was trying to stage and photograph to get the full true colors of this piece.

    I love this piece. You are so creative. I want so bad to be creative. I have 10 pieces of furniture sitting in my garage waiting for me to be creative. Where do you get your inspiration from?

      Thanks. Believe it or not they kind of speak to me, like I am masculine or I am soft or I am bold, so I go from there and pick colors. I also change colors at least 75% of the time in the middle of a project and go with another color 🤪. So I kinda go with what I feel. Just don’t feel overwhelmed just start with one piece at a time. 👍🏻
