Low on inspiration? We can fix it!

Pinterest is my best friend for
🌈COLOR COMBINATIONS - Let’s face it…we are all guilty of grabbing for the same colors like a warm blanket that feels safe. Make it a goal in 2022 to step out of your comfort zone. Maybe gold and hot pink?

📸STAGING IDEAS - This is where I struggle the most. I pay attention to how items are grouped and the types of items used. I also love the drama of closeup shots and angles. I like to call these the MONEY SHOTS.

👩‍🎨TECHNIQUES - Are all your projects looking the same? Style, color placement, finishes? (GOLD GILDING WAX IS NOT THE ONLY OPTION PEOPLE) Do you always paint light on top and dark towards the bottom? Me too. Lately I have been loving pins that are the opposite. Or, maybe you want to give gold leaf a try and not sure where to put it? There is a pin for that! And my favorite, TRANSFER PLACEMENT! I can agonize for days on how to put that on!

Just remember, there are no “rules.” Give yourself permission to try new things and for crying out loud….HAVE FUN!!!

As always I appreciate each and every one of you. If you like my content please give me a follow over on IG @chalkedbyellie and say hello!

🧼Prep
I cleaned the entire piece with White Lightning from Dixie Belle and then primed with two coats of Slick Stick.

🎨Paint
Dixie Bell Paint- Colonel Mustard
Lilly Moon Paint - Caribbean Sea

🖌Wax
Dixie Bell Best Dang Wax - Brown

I started by painting the entire piece with two coats of Colonel Mustard and let that dry. I then began dry brushing Caribbean Sea and worked that until I was happy. I also watered down the Caribbean Sea went over the piece and then whipped back where I wanted the yellow to come through. I finished the piece by top coating and then used the brown wax to add depth

It has been a true honor and privilege to partner with @treeoflifefamilyservices on this project. This beauty is being donated to a wonderful family!

Tree of Life Family Services LLC is located in Northern Virginia. They are driven by a single goal; to do their part in making the world a better place for all. They do this by providing mental health services to families. Many of these families struggle financially.

My hope and prayer is that in some way this dresser will brighten their day. ❤️ Thank you @treeoflifefamilyservices for allowing me to do this!!!!

I encourage all of you, if possible, to find a local organization and donate one of your masterpieces to a family in need. #community #giveback #team #novababe #nova #mentalhealthawareness #boss #love #care #diy #dixiebellepaint #dixiebellepaintcompany #virginia #washingtondc #makeover #upcycle #wednesday #wednesdayvibes #instagood #god #godisgood #blessed #bless #bekind #kindness #chalkedbyellie

Finally finished this bookshelf for hubby’s man cave. I think this is the first time I have done a solid color BUT it was a custom mix of @dixiebellepaint caviar, gravel road, and collared greens. #booklover #bookstagram #book #booknerd #bookshelf #diy #chalk #chalkpaintedfurniture #monday #mondaymood #mondayvibes #custom #custommade #loveyou #foryou #loveit #diyprojects #stage #flip #bossbabe #novababe #nova
