I decided last week that enough was enough and that I would actually try to paint my dated countertops. I say enough because I have been thinking of doing this for some time now but have kept putting it off. It turned out to be a much easier job than I had anticipated!
Here it is before:
And, here it is now!
Steps and Supplies:
- Coat of Dixie Belle Slick Stick
- Coat of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint: Fluff
- Dab on Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint: Driftwood
- Add a wash of the original color, Fluff
- Step back and add either the darker or lighter color wherever needed
- Seal with Dixie Belle Clear Topcoat in Flat
I do plan on adding another coat of sealer using Dixie Belle’s Gator Hide. I will post about that soon. I just ordered it and it should arrive shortly. It is apparently a stronger topcoat and I want the toughest possible. Until then, I am being careful when I wipe them down.
Only that one section of my kitchen is actually done! I still have the entire left side to work on!
I have a sweet little dresser makeover to share with you all this week. Until then!
