Bring Your Own Piece of Furniture to the Paint Studio


1. Bring your own piece of Furniture to Revive

Ready to paint?  Bring an item small enough to carry and will fit through the door.  Recommend side table, bureau, desk, book shelf, bar stool, chair, or picture frame.  These items should take about 2 hours per piece from prep to finish.  

2. Prep the Piece

The real beauty of Chalked Painting is no need to sand or prime.  A good cleaning is necessary and we have the best supplies for that.

3. Determine the color.

Select from a wide variety of colors using Dixie Belle Mineral Paint.   You can use more than one color and layer colors.

4. Paint

Dixie Belle Mineral Paint provides smooth coverage and is self leveling.  Typically covers in 2 coats.  The no-VOC paint dries very quickly, so you won't be spending time 'watching the paint dry".  And you can speed it  up with a hair dryer we have on hand.

5. Distress and Wax Finish

Dixie Belle Mineral Paint has a finishing coat in the paint so wax is not required.  However, waxes, glazes, and gel stains provide more interest and dimension to finish your piece of furniture.  Light sanding gives the distressed wood look many like.  For tables that  will have a lot of use, we recommend using a flat or satin finish.
