Before starting this french farmhouse makeover, I began with the most important step in painting your furniture. Cleaning! I use Dixie Belle’s White Lighting mixed in a spray bottle of warm water. Mist over the surface and wipe clean. After cleaning I wiped down the whole piece again with clear water and a soft cloth to remove any residue of the cleaner.

The surface on this french provincial farmhouse dresser was slick and I’ve painted enough of these to know it will need a bonder for the paint to stick. SLICK STICK by Dixie Bell is perfect for slick surfaces. I painted on one coat and allowed it to dry overnight before painting.

Mixing these two colors created a beautiful farmhouse blue. Customize your color with Dixie Belle Paint.The color of blue I wanted for this french farmhouse makeover was a rich country blue.
