Vintage Demilune Table Upcycle with Dixie Belle Paint In Caviar

July 16, 2018
 Do you remember this vintage thrift shop table from a recent junk finds blog post?

I am giving this little table a makeover today on my blog!

Have you ever tried Dixie Belle Paint?  This is my very first project using Dixie Belle Paint.

I chose a black shade called Caviar.

I became aware of Dixie Belle Paint from following the awesome blog of Larissa at Prodigal Pieces.  It is her favorite paint, and she has a long portfolio of beautiful furniture projects on her blog.  Check them out if you have time!

I have done a lot of painting with different types of chalk paints, but I took the time to watch this short video on the Dixie Belle Paint website.  I found it very useful.

Dixie Belle Paint was very easy to brush on.  I used a round type brush with natural bristles.  (Remember to dampen your brush before use).  I ended up using two coats.

My table had a very uneven surface from water damage.  I could have sanded it down for an ultra smooth finish, but I don't mind the vintage look of several coats of paint, and a few brush strokes.  It gives the piece the appearance of age.

Caviar is such a rich black tone.

I laid one section of a FolkArt Stencil Four Piece Ornamental Damask stencil on the top.  I think 1/2 of this stencil will work perfectly on this half (demilune) tabletop.

I used Ceramcoat white craft paint to stencil design.

I chose Dixie Belle Paint Company Satin Clear Coat to seal the chalk mineral paint.

Again, I watched another short but informational video on the Dixie Belle site for with tips on the application of clear coat.

If I have any further advice to offer on my experience with clear coat, I would say remember to dampen the brush and dip just the tips of the brush in the clear coat.  You don't need very much.  I applied two thin coats.

The color is so rich, and the stencil is perfect for this table.
