I love this old shutter but wasn't crazy about the color.
So, when The Dixie Belle Paint Company asked me to test out their new product, Sea Spray, I knew that it would be perfect for the shutter makeover.
Sea Spray is a powder you add to paint to add texture to the piece you're painting. Following the package directions, I added the Sea Spray to the color Hurricane Gray, also from Dixie Belle.
Once thoroughly mixed, I painted it onto the shutter using a chip brush.
Even though I wasn't crazy about the green color, I still wanted a little of it to show through, so I didn't cover the shutter completely.
I dragged the chip brush lightly across the Sea Spray after the shutter sat for a few minutes and had started to dry. This knocked down some of the peaks and also added more texture.
Once the Sea Spray had dried completely, I painted the entire shutter with the color Drop Cloth.
When the Drop Cloth was dry, I sanded the shutter to reveal the Hurricane Gray and the original green color.
I then stenciled a French logo onto the shutter and sanded over it.
To add even more "age" to the shutter, I added Dixie Belle glazes Grunge and Black.
The shutter looks as though it has been painted many times over the years. I love the result of the Sea Spray!
I was given the product, Sea Spray, from The Dixie Belle Paint Company to test, but I was not compensated in any other way. All opinions are strictly my own.
