I have been searching for the perfect French Country green paint color for a long time.

French Country green can’t be too blue nor can it be too green.

It needs to speak to the sunny hillsides of France which yields a soft, sun-washed shade of green that almost appears gray.

I am thrilled to say – I found it.

Dixie Belle’s Dried Sage.

The final pictures actually pull a little lighter than they appear in person.

In person, they are the perfect warm, sun-washed gray/green.

To test out the green I decided to redo our kitchen benches because why not?

You Will Need:


Step 1: Sand

Sand the top down with a hand sander. Use a sheet of sand paper and scuff up the base or use Dixie Belle white lightening cleaner.


Step 2: Wipe down

Step 3: Apply clear wax to top

Step 4: Paint base

Step 5: Apply clean coat shellac to seal and finish
