Hi friends, so glad you’re here! What to do when you’re under the weather with a head cold that has latched on and feels like it’s taken up permanent residence? Aside from getting extra rest, sipping on hot lemon water and trying to ‘stay with it’ on social media, I’ve been playing with these new metallic paints!
They have JUST been added to the Dixie Belle Paint line and I’m excited to introduce them… and test them out for you. I have such a grueling job. 😉
These metallics are gorgeous! The first thing I did when I received this box of goodies was open each and every jar and create a swatch pallet.
When the light hits these metallics it’s magical. Check out all this glittery goodness and the gorgeous colors!
I can’t wait to try these metallic paints on some furniture but as a tester project, I started by restyling this $2.99 Vanity Tray that I picked up from a flea market years ago.
You’ve probably seen these vanity trays everywhere! There seems to be a twin or similar version in every thrift shop and garage sale I go to. They must have been very popular at one point.
Check out this before and after! What do you think?

$2.99 Vanity Tray Makeover::
This has got to be the easiest and fastest makeover ever. I started by removing the back of the tray and took out the mirror. Then gave it a good cleaning.
I decided to go with this Rozay to create a rose gold look.
I painted the front and back of the metal tray. It took two (2) coats to get good coverage. I also did a scratch test on the first coat and it adhered perfectly. It doesn’t budge.
Is there nothing a little paint can’t update! What do you think?
I’m still loving my Magnolia Home faux magnolia flowers. I ended up cutting the stems down and am getting so much more use out of them.
Okay, and don’t worry I didn’t forget. There was such a great response to last weeks Furniture Knob Giveaway. Thank you to each and every one of you who participated… you guys are a lot of fun!
