Can you think of any furniture pieces you would love to give a refresh, but you don’t know where to start?


This is my second project using Dixie Belle paint products, and I cannot rave about them enough.


My first project was this white chalk paint side table with a whitewashed tabletop finish!


This time I refinished a set of vintage bistro chairs I have had sitting on my front porch for years.

My favorite part? The super-easy crackle effect I got on the white paint to give that old-world vintage paint finish.


I couldn’t believe how easy it was! These products would be a great gift box idea for any DIY lover on your Christmas list by the way!


Let’s get this party started.
