Our blog entry comes to us this week from our Brand Ambassador Jane Bellante of Morning Dew Creations.

Hello Paint Pixie Family! I was gifted this well built, but out of style Colonial entryway piece from a sweet friend who was ready to part with it. There were some scratches on the top, and the pulls were very outdated.

I started by taking off the pulls, and giving the piece an overall cleaning. Then, I grabbed the Paint Pixie Undercover Primer in Coconut, and gave the entire piece one coat of primer.

I let the primer dry overnight, then I grabbed a gorgeous French Blue color – Paint Pixie Magical Chaulk Paint in French Macaron. Ooh la la this is a great color!

I used my Dusty brush to paint one coat (only one coat!) over the Paint Pixie Undercover Primer. The coverage is amazing! Knowing that I wanted to distress this piece, I knew I would love bits of the coconut showing through underneath. I also sanded down the top to reveal the original wood, and I then added a dark brown glaze. So gorgeous! I grabbed some cup pulls I had laying around and a pretty crystal pull for the center- and Wah-La! All finished. Didn’t she just turn out so pretty?
