You Crackle Me Up!

I've been so excited to try out Dixie Belle's new Crackle & finally found the perfect piece for it.
There was however a problem. The drawer stunk! It smelled like something climbed in there & died! Well, maybe not that bad, but bad nonetheless. 
 Luckily, Dixie Belle has a solution for that too. BOSS to the rescue! It blocks odors, as well as stains & prevents bleed through. It worked like a charm to block the smell in the drawer.
 I painted the entire table with the color Gravel Road.

 Once the paint was dry, I added the crackle. You have to be careful not to overwork it or it won't crack as much. 

 I let the crackle dry overnight, then painted the table with Manatee Gray.
 As the paint dries, it will start to crack.
 I love the result!
 The second problem with the table was that it didn't have a handle. I had one leftover from another project but it was the wrong color.
 So, I painted it.
 Midnight Sky was the perfect color to bring it all together.

 I may become obsessed with Crackle!

  1. I like how that turned out! I have a sister who is crafty and decorated a small accent table for my mom with the crackle paint. It’s such an interesting product. I used to have quite a collection of scented candles that I grouped into the bottom of a server. After a while the smell was incredible. I hope that that product seals in the smell but if not I wonder if adding the scented candles will do anything for it. I like the handle you painted black- it looks perfect!

  2. The Dixie Belle crackle medium worked great! Some of the other brands I've tried haven't worked as well for me. I will look for this and try it. For odors I wash the inside drawers with a bleach and Mrs Meyers Clean Day all purpose cleaner combination, leaving it to soak for a few hours and repeat if necessary. The finished table looks much better. Thanks for sharing!


  3. I love Dixie Belle products but I haven't tried their crackle medium nor their BOSS. They've been added to my must have list. Love the table makeover!

  4. Love the transformation and love the crackle finish. I will be featuring this tonight at my Fall into Fall party that starts at 8pm EST. Please stop by and pick up an I've Been Featured button. Thanks.
