Before Mixing Furniture Paint Colors
This project started when I was asked by Dixie Belle Paint to do some custom color mixing with their paint. Of course, I said yes. I also said yes to doing a Facebook Live with the talented Tracey’s Fancy. It took one phone call to seal the deal. What a sweetheart! It was meant to be. Two Granny furniture painters. What’s not to love, right? Below is our Facebook LIVE if you want a few giggles. We had a good time. Later on in the post, I’ll share her finished project with you as well.
Choosing The Wood Stain
The wood top was still in pretty good condition, except for a few dark spots across the top. After using CitriStrip and cleaning with Odorless Mineral Spirits, I stained it with Old Masters Dark Walnut Gel Stain. I applied Minwax Wipe-On Poly with a lint-free cotton cloth… a total of three coats. Each coat was allowed to dry with a light sanding of 220 grit sandpaper between the first 2 layers. The final layer was not sanded.
