Shutter Makeover With Sea Spray


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!

  1. I love the stencil you added to your shutter. I'm seeing this sea spray or sea salt paint on lots of projects. I see where you're an artist, also! I think I was born with a paintbrush in my hands...LOL!
