Dixie Belle:  (My Affiliate Link)

I’ve been a Brand Ambassador for over a year with Dixie Belle Paint Company.  I’ve tried many many many brands, but Dixie Belle stood out as being the best.   I love that the products all work great together.  No more dealing with wax having to be the last thing you do….with Dixie Belle, you can paint and put a top coat sealer over their wax.  Love this company 🙂

Slick Stick: (My affiliate link)

For slick, shiny surfaces such as glass, counter-tops, Formica, tile anything slick and shiny!  This is a lifesaver y’all!! Using this product first will allow Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral Paint to adhere to the slickest surface!  I LOVE this stuff and Use it often !!

 

 

 

The BOSS (Clear or White):  (My Affiliate Link)

Blocks Odor, Stains, Stops Bleed thru.   I use this anytime I’m working on a darker wood or a wood that has red / orange / or pink undertones to prevent bleed through.    It’s amazing and easy to use ….LOVE IT !!

 

 

FIFO Bottles :   (My Amazon Affiliate Link)
I love using FIFO Bottles to store my paints.   My work space stays nice and neat, easy to dispense just the amount you need and nothing more…no more wasting paint.   It alway helps keep your paint fresh since you won’t have a lid off of your container while you paint exposing it to air and drying it out or causing it to thicken up.

 

 

 

 

Dixie Belle’s Synthetic Brushes (Affiliate Link)

These brushes are medium/stiff and, since they are made with SRT (Solid Round Tapered) Filament, they have great response with spring back and bend recovery for the flex. This helps with retaining the natural form and shape of the brush. Exactly what you’d expect from high end professional paint brushes.  GREAT for blending and leave a smooth finish.

 

 

Wooster Sponge Brush (My Amazon Affiliate LInk):

I love using these brushes for top coats.  They are hard to find, so I get mine from Amazon. Cheaper sponge brushes with the little wooden stick / handle do not last very long and will start shedding black little sponge bits before I am finished with my project.  With this Wooster Sponge Brush, there isn’t any shedding of spong “bits” and you can use them on a couple projects (washing them in between uses) before they start to show any signs of breaking apart.  Well worth ordering and paying a little extra.

 

3 Wheel Furniture Dolly: (My Amazon Affiliate Link)

I LOVE these things !!!  It makes it easy to move my furniture around my work space.   It also helps me for rotating my projects as I paint them.  I’m not strong enough to move my pieces around by myself, but with these little dollies I can do it easily on my own.

Workshop Roller Chair : (My Amazon Affiliate Link) 

This will be a back saver, or should I say “bum” saver.   I use to sit on the cold cement in my garage while I was painting.  This little roller stool gets me off the cold ground, rolls around easily, soft seat and a place to store your tools on a little ledge under the seat.  So happy I bought this 🙂
