Dixie Belle Blue is a beautiful, bright, fun, Tiffany blue. This color is reminiscent of a bluebird egg. Its easy peasy to update your furniture with Dixie Belle Paint!
NO sanding. NO priming. NO waxing required with Dixie Belle Paint!
This is a simple 3 tier shelf that has a lot of potential. It has some minor damage and a few deep scratches on the top. Dixie Belle Paint Company has a product called Dixie Mud that is perfect for repairing scratches or even gouges in furniture!
Here you can see the moisture damage and discoloration that occurred on the top of the shelf.

Step 1: The first step is to apply Dixie Mud to fill in the holes and even out the top layer. Apply mud with a spatula to fill problem areas and scrape off excess. Clean spatula off with baby wipes or paper towel. Do not put down the drain! Allow mud to dry before painting.
Step 2: The second step is to apply 2 coats of Dixie Belle Paint in the color of your choice. We used Dixie Belle Blue !
Dixie Belle Paint is so creamy it glides on smooth and completely masks the old worn piece. Dixie Belle Paint Company is an innovative and proactive company with an all encompassing product line. You do not have to seal Dixie Belle Paint!
Here is the final look! The shelf was used as a paint display at the in Tampa, Florida. The paint colors really pop against this blue! Let us know what you think in the comments

    This is first time I've become aware of Dixie Bell paints and I was impressed with statements on how well it covered and no sealing necessary. Also the shelf was adorable. But alas when I checked the prices I was scared off. Must have been at least $40 to $60 worth of product on a $10? sale find. For me that would defeat the purpose. Wish it weren't so cause I just bought a quirky 3 tier wall shelf at estate sale today!

    Dixie Belle Paint is a great price in comparison to other chalk/mineral paints out there. I love it! It has great coverage (I used "Vintage Duck Egg" over a cherry stain and only needed 1 coat!)!!!
