Can Dixie Bell Paint Make Our Wonderful Old Farmhouse Chair Beautiful Again?

Farmhouse Chair

Dixie Belle Chalk Painted Farmhouse Chair

Dixie Bell Paint is a product we haven’t had the chance to try yet, but we’ve picked the perfect piece out of the project barn to test out Dixie Belle Paint on.

Here is our antique Farmhouse chair, as found about 4 years ago. It lived in a few rooms before making its way into the project barn for an overhaul.

There it is, I love our charming old farmhouse chair. It’s pretty beat up. I think I paid $5 for it years ago. When I picked it up it was in pieces. All the spindles have been glued back in place, and a few broken ones were repaired over the years. I’m happy to finally pull this beauty out and get to work with on our latest Dixie Bell Paint project.

Here are a few chairs we really like. I don’t use much green, but I love how well green suits these great farmhouse pieces.

Dixie Belle Paint Colours

I had no idea how many different green paints are available. I counted 13, and managed to settled on Palmetto Chalk Mineral Paint. I’ll be adding an aged patina to the chair as well, so to accomplish that, Ill be using a thin layer of wonderful Drop cloth white colour
