The painting details 🎨

This Bombay chest got its start with Niss & That came to visit a couple of weeks ago. Her husband Vance prepped it for me with white lightning cleaner and primed it with BOSS. Yes, I will put anyone that comes through my front door to work with no shame!


This Bombay received 2 coats of Tea Rose (perfectly named) from Dixie Belle Paint Company. Then I added just a little bit of Fluff with a dry round wax brush for a little variance at the bottom.


Once it was dry I applied the Tea Time decoupage paper from Bubblegum Yum. I completely cut it out. Here is a video with the step by step instructions!

I decoupaged it on with Dixie Belle clear satin topcoat. Then I applied this gorgeous rose transfer from Hokuspokus!! It’s called Jardin de Roses 🌹.
