Painting The Base Color
I chose a beautiful color that’s new to the Dixie Belle line called In The Navy. A rich masculine blue that will be perfect for this makeover. Blending paint on the front of the drawers with Driftwood added a bit of visual interest. My hubby will be using it in our bedroom and it CANNOT be girly. Know what I mean?
Sealing The Painted Dresser
Dixie Belle makes a radical sealer for those high traffic areas and ones that need a bit of water resistance. It’s called Gator Hide. I apply it with a sponge.
