“Rusty Nail” is just one of the most recent colors released by Dixie Belle Paints. Its a cross between a red and an orange color. Its a Fab Boho color… a dark coral if you ask me. It is one of those colors I have been on the hunt for lately.
I couldn’t wait for my box of paints to get here in the mail to start working on pieces using all the new colors. This piece I did was an old dresser I picked up and it really needed a makeover… It was the typical cherrywood style…. so yes, a coat of “Boss” on it to block the tannins…
The knobs were really old an they needed a little more pizazz… so what better then to add some Patina….
Dixie Belle has a great line of patina products, the Iron, Bronze and Copper and you can order the Blue and Green activator. On these knobs I used Bronze and the Green Patina spray. You apply a light coat of Bronze paint and let that dry and add another light coat and while it is wet you spray it with the green activator. Its super easy to use. I let them dry and added a light coat of wax to seal them.
After my coat of The Boss in clear dried I used some Caviar on the top, and I applied 2 coats. The base of this dresser I painted in the new Rusty Nail and in the center area I applied some Terra Cotta (also a color by Dixie Belle). After some water on my brush and a little blending I achieved the look I was looking for. I used just a little of the Terra Cotta because a little bit of Dixie Belle goes a long way. I was super happy with the results. I can’t wait to start working on the next new color. ❤️
