Teresa Morse visited one of Dixie Belle Paint's fabulous retailers, REEcreations and she came home with Drop Cloth! Next she turned her kitchen into a creamy wonderland! What do you think?

The FIRST step is to clean your cabinets with Dixie Belle White Lightning. Here is a BEFORE picture. These cabinets were boring with a dreary orange undertone. They needed to be lighter and brighter to make this smaller kitchen appear larger.
The SECOND step is to paint your cabinets with 2 even coats of Dixie Belle Paint. You can use a traditional brush or a sponge to apply the paint. Make sure to start with a damp brush for the most even application. Also, starting with a damp brush extends your paint.
The THIRD step is to seal your cabinets. Gator Hide is a water repellent poly acrylic that is perfect for high traffic wet areas like your kitchen! Gator Hide is best applied in 3 thin coats with a sponge.
You can dress up your cabinets by distressing, adding layers of paint, glaze, wax or stain! No priming or Sanding required. If you are dealing with DIFFICULT high gloss lacquer you can sand if you feel it is necessary but White Lightning will prepare most surfaces. Glue down any peeling or problem areas on Formica cabinets. Visit us on Pinterest for more inspiration: https://www.pinterest.com/dixiebellepaint/painting-kitchen-and-bathroom-cabinets-painted-fur/
