Hello lovelies!! I’m back today with a quickie makeover for ya’ll from my Biggest Thrifty Haul of them all. I also have some Dixie Belle news at the bottom!
I picked up this funky little table at the thrift store for $19.95 a couple of years ago:
I’ve been using it in my storage room to hold a lamp since there is no overhead lighting in there. I had almost forgotten about it! I’ve included a few affiliate links so you can find the products I love.
I thought it would be a great candidate to try out a new-to-me color.
How about Kudzu??
I’m not much of a green person usually, even though as a child, green was my most favorite color in the whole world (I had a green fern bedspread to prove it!), but this particular green is a good seller for me, so I wanted to give it a try!
I gave it two coats and when it was dry, I decided to add just a hint of something with a sweet mini transfer:
This one is from a set of mini transfers called Classic Vintage Labels by Re-designed by Prima. If you search that name on Etsy, you’ll find several retailers that have them.
I then sanded lightly all over with 220 grit sandpaper wrapped around an old sanding sponge:
The sponge makes it super easy to get around all those curved parts. Just be sure to not let the clear coat pool anywhere as those areas will yellow. If that happens, just touch up with paint and reseal.
I love how this color looks on this sweet side table!
The tiny transfer adds just a hint of charm…
Isn’t this green lovely up close??
I also added a bee to the top…
Exciting Dixie Belle news and necessary business
Now for some exciting news and necessary business! For those of you who may be new around here, I’m a Premier Dixie Belle Retailer selling both in my booth here in Virginia Beach and in my Etsy shop online.
I’ll share the necessary business first, and then the exciting news!
According to Dixie Belle, the raw materials, plastics, and packaging materials have all increased 8-9% as a result of COVID. To cover these increased costs, they will be raising the prices on some of their items.
These changes will take effect on January 1st. Dixie Belle will still be priced below the competition! I wanted to share ahead of time in case there is anything you want to buy before the increase.
Here are the products that will be affected:
- Patina collection
- White Lightning
- Slick Stick
- No Pain Gel Stain
- Easy Spray Wax
- Gator Hide
Although we are allowed to price as high as we want to help cover operating costs, I will always price as low as I am allowed and will still continue to offer FREE shipping on all orders over $50 in my Etsy shop. (All other orders are $8 flat rate shipping.) I ship USPS Priority Mail and same day or next business day in most cases.
Now for exciting news!
Gilding waxes are finally back! They just went on sale today, and I placed my order first thing, so I expect to have them in stock very soon!
Be on the lookout for those in my shop if you have been waiting for them! They are also coming out with a new line of Silk Screen Stencils that I have also ordered that I am super excited about!
And in January, Dixie Belle is releasing an entirely new line of paint called Silk All-in-One Mineral Paint:
I will be carrying the full line in both my Etsy shop and in my booth.
This paint is different in that it’s not so much for those that like a distressed look, which the chalk-mineral paint is perfect for, but more for those who prefer a clean, crisp look.
It is a one step paint that has a primer, paint, and sealer in one, so although I am partial to a distressed look, I am really excited to give it a try! Maybe on our bathroom cabinets??
That is all the Dixie Belle news I have for today.
And, I am thrilled to cross another project off the list!!
If you missed any of these makeovers so far, you can find them all here:
I’ll be back with a round of smalls, holiday edition on Tuesday!
Update: They are done and cute as can be…check them all out HERE now!
Have an amazing weekend and stay safe out there!
Don’t Miss a Thing!
