Antiqued Chic by Michele

In my spare time, I found a passion for refinishing old furniture. I’ve taken antiqued & weathered furniture & turn them into beautiful restorations that I hope you will love too.

I use high quality Dixie Belle chalk paint & products on all my work.

Thank you again Holly Devane LaFort for allowing me to paint yet another beautiful bedroom set, this time for your sweet Sophia!! The tall dresser was in rough shape and had missing edge moldings, peeling veneer, and warped drawer slides. I created new molds and replaced all the missing edge molding, along with making new decorative molds using resign epoxy. I attached all of them and painted them in beautiful Silver Bullet to give the dresser a new sophisticated look. Both the dresser and nightstand received gorgeous new crystal drawer pulls to tie it all together. I repaired and patched the missing veneer and fixed the drawer slides to make the dresser drawers slide oh so smoothly now. I truly hope she loves these pieces in her new bedroom 💙

Products used:

💙 Dixie Belle Chalk Mineral paint, Dusty Blue
💙 Dixie Belle Moonshine Metallics, Silver Bullet
💙 Dixie Belle, Gator Hide Top Coat

I just finished up this 50s-60s era Pulaski Hall Tree for my neighbor, isn’t it the coolest!! I had never seen a piece of furniture like this before and was excited for something new! My neighbor asked me to put some life back into it. It definitely needed some TLC, as someone had done a poor refinishing attempt before I received it. The umbrella cup and the hardware were tarnishing and beginning to show their age. Some of the veneer was coming up and it had dings and little holes everywhere. I repaired the problem areas and gave this hall tree a fresh start. I applied Dixie Belle chalk paint in Savana Mist and sealed it with 3 coats of Gator Hide. As well as applying gray wax to the grooves and detail areas to highlight all the special features. The hardware was refinished in a nickel tone and sealed with 4 coats of shellac. The umbrella cup area was finished in Rub-n-buff silver wax for a durable seal. I hope you love it Erica Marie!!

This rustic rocking chair will be heading to a cabin in NH to be loved by its new family 🐻🏚 This rocker was painted in Dixie Belle chalk paint in the color Cavier and given a bear and mountain themed stencil to match the decor in its new home. The details in the lower spindles were highlighted with a white wax to bring it all together. I also had a fuzzy fur model who decided to lay down and pose for some of the photos 🙄🐶😂.

I just love how happy this rocker looks now!! 💛
This color is so bright and cheery and perfect for spring 💛🌻. This old Hitchcock rocker was dried out and needed some TLC. I cleaned up the wood and painted her in the color Daisy by Dixie Belle and applied the Sunflower Fields transfer by Re-Design by Prima to bring this lovely rocker back to life. I just love her and hope her new owner does too 💛🙂

I just picked up this gorgeous China cabinet!! It definitely needs some TLC, but will clean up really nicely!! Can’t wait to start working on her!❤️

Boy did I have fun with this one!! Amy Jo, thank you for letting me refinish this beauty for you ❤️

The body of this gorgeous desk was painted in Dixie Belle Vintage Duck Egg with a blend of DB Palmetto. The top was stained with a custom mix of a dark walnut and ebony stain, sealed with 3 coats of poly that was buffed before being coated in Renaissance micro crystalline wax / polish. Look at that shine and reflection!! The inside of the draws received beautiful draw liners and the outsides were treated with a eye catching Palmetto colored stencil to tie it all together. This stunning desk received new k***s and the original draw pulls were given a new silver finish using Rub-n-Buff wax to match.

Was able to get some painting in today. 😊 Applied my 1st coat of paint to the body of this pretty desk and applied a coat of wood conditioner to the top. The natural wood has really come back to life and it’s not even done yet! I’m working on doing a blend from Palmetto to Duck Egg on the legs (I’ll have a better blend after the next coat). This one is going to be so pretty when it’s done.

A life long friend asked if I could give a vanity she picked up for her daughter a makeover. She's creating a surprise for her daughter and told me the bedroom accents are pink and teal so I tried to pull it all together with that in mind..

The outside of this beauty was finished in Dixie Belle's, Fluff. The jewelry compartments and draw needed a makeover as well, so the velvet was painted in Dixie's Mermaid Tail 💚 . Yes, you can use DB on fabric as well!! 😲 ... and it’s still buttery soft (after a light sanding)! It truly is an amazing line! I applied metallic wax Rub-N-Buff, Silver Leaf to the draw pull and mirror screws. This really made the hardware pop against the Fluff. I finished the vanity draw sides in a stencil created by Redesign by Prima to tie it all together. The vanity bench was newly reupholstered in a gorgeous teal material. With the extra fabric I sewed 2 matching toss pillows to go with her set. All wood surfaces were sealed in 3 coats of DB Gator Hide for the most durable finish.

Thank you, my friend for letting me create something new and special for your daughter. I hope she truly loves it 💚

The vanity is off to her her forever home on Friday. This was such a fun set to refinish 💚

Finally getting to work on some pieces!! 😀

The antique bureaus I picked up a few weeks ago need tons of work, and were missing some of the decorative molding on the draws. I created some new molds out of resign and Dixie Belle Mud to fill in those empty spaces. Sanding one down so it matches perfectly. Here we go...

I’ve been working on this French Provincial set for one of my spare bedrooms for several weeks and finally finished it today. I am really happy with how it came out. 😊 All handpainted with a 70/30 color mix of Dixie Belle Mud Puddle and Dixie Belle Fluff. I highlighted all the intricate details with gold gilding wax and sealed all the pieces with 3 coats of Dixie Belle Gator Hide. The drawer pulls received a brand new coat of high-gloss gold finish, and the chair cushion was replaced and newly reupholstered with a beautiful gold fabric.

I just picked up these 2 pieces today! Aren’t they gorgeous! I’m so excited to refinish them and restore some life back into them. They need a good cleaning and a lot of wood repair, but will be stunning when complete!! Thinking of leaving some of the natural wood and painting parts of it....What do you guys think?
