Our journey started more than a decade ago when Whitney and I were dating! We were poor college kids that loved spending our time finding old or used furniture to re-paint and re-design for our home. We used it all..... Spray paints, Latex paints and many other things to cover these pieces and achieve our creative vision. It was a lot of fun and... A LOT OF WORK! We spent so much time sanding, applying extra costs, trying to remove brush stroke lines that we were finding by the end of the project all the "hard" work was killing the fun and we just could not wait to get the project over with.
One day, we watched a video on YouTube where a lady was using this awesome stuff called chalk mineral paint to refinish her furniture and we knew we had to try it. After experimenting with several different brands of Chalk Paints such as Annie Sloan, DIY Chalk Paint, Rust-Oleum and more, we quickly decided Dixie Belle Chalk-Mineral Paint was the best and our go to! We loved all of the color choices and especially the problem solver products they offer like BOSS, Clear Coats, Waxes, Gel-Stains, and more to take our furniture painting skills to the next level (Future BLOGS to come)!
