FAFF Designs Cabinet Dixie Belle Paint Company No Pain Gel Stain Best Dang Wax

In the spotlight this week is Connie Clarke from FAFF Designs! Yes we're taking this opportunity to give you a tiny taste of her amazing talents and show you why you should attend our event on 21st January!

This cabinet is a piece that Connie actually did for herself. We've all been subjected to super orange pine furniture - second hand furniture and charity shops are full of them. And this piece from Connie started off with a dark orange pine finish but she worked her magic to turn it into a something much softer and more in keeping with her home!

Connie first stripped the cabinet back to remove the original stain, and then applied Dixie Belle Paint Company's No Pain Gel Stain in Picklin' White. She really worked this into the grain to get the look she wanted. Once it was fully dry she then finished it with Best Dang Wax in White to highlight areas and create tonal variations.

Isn't it beautiful?! The woodgrain on show is simply stunning!

Has this inspired you to get that orange pine updated? Or to join an Evening with Connie Clarke? We'd love to host you - whether that's instore or online! Another little tip from Connie - the wall in the background is actually painted in Dixie Belle's Silk Mineral Paint in Black Sands - did you know you could use it to paint your walls too?
