First up, let’s talk about some of these gorgeous shades of blues. One of my favorites is Dixie Belle In The The Navy in the original chalk paint line. This makeover, Painted Gossip Bench Makeover . This makeover also featured the use of a beautiful Redesign With Prima Transfer called French Ceramics.
In the Round Accent Table Makeover I a few paints to create a blended finish, but the primary color is Vintage Duck Egg. It is a beautiful shade of blues.
Another painted furniture makeover using Vintage Duck Egg and Antebellum Blue to create a textured paint finish on this vintage chair. It turned out really unique. You’ll find details in: Textured Paint Finish: A Vintage Chair Makeover Using Salt Wash.
I’ll end this section with this Chalk Painted Upholstery makeover on a fabric chair using a mixture of Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint Colors: Peacock, Mermaid Tail, and Cobalt Blue.
Dixie Belle Greens
Okay and lastly, let’s talk about green paint. This is one of my favorite colors of painted furniture. Dixie Belle has green shades in both the original chalk paint line and the Silk Line. The makeovers featured here will show Silk Paints.
First up in the color line is Dixie Belle Silk Midnight Green. It’s a lovely color, so rich and deep, a perfect green color.

You can’t go wrong with gray paint. It’s always a winner and there are so many colors to choose from in gray tones, from warms to cools to neutrals.
For a few ideas check out:
In this post on Painting Bedroom Furniture I used Silk Paint in Baja Gray to paint my old brown dresser and armoire. You absolutely can’t go wrong with Baja Gray Silk Paint. It is smooth and creamy and the perfect cool to neutral shade of gray.
Several shades of grays in the original Chalk Mineral Paint line were used in the buffalo plaid design on the Farmhouse Style Painted Furniture Antique Washstand Makeover. They were the perfect for a farmhouse finish.

Black Painted Dixie Belle Makeover
Now, let’s move ahead to one of my favorite colors to use. It’s moody but add some metallic and gold accents and it is stunning. The two colors of Dixie Belle that are the truest black in my opinion are Chalk Mineral Paint in Caviar and Silk Paint in Anchor. Both are wonderful options.
So, here are a few makeover featuring those paints:
Vintage Vanity Makeover again using Anchor Silk and accented with a decoupage paper and stenciling.
