Vintage Floral Decoupage Cabinet

I love decoupage - my first ever piece of furniture I painted had decoupage on it and I've loved it ever since. Read this blog to find out how I created this pretty cabinet using Dixie Belle products. There is also a video at the bottom of the page if you'd rather watch the process!

Here's how the piece started out after a good clean with White Lightning and a scuff sand.  

I applied a base coat of Midnight Sky and then a wash of Coffee Bean using the Best Dang Brush to add warmth to the base colour.

I used the colour Drop Cloth underneath the decoupage paper so that the base coat of Midnight Sky/Coffee Bean wouldn't alter the colour of the flowers and used Satin Clear Coat to stick the decoupage paper down. 


I used Midnight Sky with a synthetic brush to bring the background colour to meet the decoupage paper.

I used a RAD pad sanding sponge to sand the edge of the decoupage paper to get it to blend into the furniture.

I used an artist brush with the colours Pine Cone and Chocolate to blend the background of the decoupage paper into the the rest of the cabinet colour. 

I also carried this colour scheme around the sides of the piece and on the top to keep a cohesive colour throughout. 

I applied Best Dang Wax in Clear to seal the paint. 

I used Gold Gilding Wax with the Victorian Damask stencil to add some peekaboo detail onto the drawer sides as well as using some around the edges of the drawer and door to define them and add some glamour. 

Below is the finished piece along with some close ups. I hope this has inspirted you to get creative with some decoupage!
