Today’s post is a round-up of painted furniture in every color of the rainbow (plus a few more), using Dixie Belle chalk mineral paint. These were all painted by me in styles from farmhouse to cottage to boho to industrial. I experiment a lot!
I hope you enjoy these colors, techniques and styles and feel inspired by something you find here. You can order these paints HERE.

This antique dresser was converted to a Coffee bar with a chalkboard in Barn Red with Van Dyke Brown glaze over it.
My client purchased this old radio cabinet we converted into a French Printer Cabinet. This was Honky Tonk Red blended with Aubergine.
I loved adding some girly detail to this big box store nursery changing table with WoodUBend appliques and Soft Pink. Rozay and Gold Digger metallics were also used to add some glam.
Isn’t this child’s rocker precious? It was painted for a little girl named Rose in the color Tea Rose.
This was a recent project I did because I realized I had no orange in my portfolio. The outcome was this Southwestern style Boho Trunk painted in Rusty Nail. It got a raised stencil accented with Buttercream, and shading around the edges in Coffee Bean. Check out that hardware patina! Actual rust to go with the Rusty Nail color.
I used Terracotta on this Boho Style End Table (gorgeous with copper accents!), and it also incorporates Mermaid Tail green.
This Half Round Table was a piece I did for my own home, using Colonel Mustard and Rebel Yellow. I also added scrap pieces of transfers and some brown wax for shading.
You can tell green is one of “my” colors because I’ve used a variety of them.
This adorable Vintage Accent Table was painted in Evergreen, and then glazed with Van Dyke brown.
This little cabinet went through several paint jobs, but it ended up Kudzu. This is a lush grass green color with a slight gray undertone that is really pleasing. I added metallic paints, waxes and transfers to this one as well.
You won’t believe the before and after of this dresser! It was very dark and dated, so I painted it with a light sage-y green called Spanish Moss. It also got some wood appliques and transfers. This makeover really shows the power of paint!
This Mid-Century Modern China Cabinet was painted Farmhouse Green. It sold as a display piece for a retail store.
I had 4 of these sturdy wood Cottage Chairs. I painted two of them in Sea Glass, and two in Vintage Duck Egg.
If you don’t know this about me, blue is my favorite color. So much so that I’ve already done a blog post dedicated to the blue furniture I have painted. Here are a few examples of pieces you’ll find in that post.
And here’s a little bonus project for you in Antebellum Blue:
Dixie Belle has a pretty wide range of grays to choose from.
These Mis-matched Nightstands are painted in Driftwood. Aren’t they perfectly farmhouse?
The Manatee Gray on these Romantic Shabby Chic tables really helped bring out the ornate details. Distressing and white wax also helped with that.
Here’s a project I just finished up for my son’s bedroom. His dresser is painted in Hurricane Gray, and black and silver waxes added for a brushed metal look.
This Elegant Gray Buffet went to a favorite repeat client of mine. It was painted in Gravel Road, and black glaze added depth.
I’ve probably painted more white furniture than anything else. And I get it; sometimes you need neutral pieces. Not every piece can be a statement piece or pop of color. Here’s a blog post dedicated to all the whites and creams I’ve used, and a few examples you’ll find in that post.
Black is also a neutral, and there’s an old decorating adage that you need some black in every room to ground it.
This classic Sofa table was painted Caviar. I probably would have chosen gold hardware, but my client chose silver and I like that as well.
I wasn’t sure what heading French Linen falls under. It is taupe? Is it gray? Either way, here are a couple pieces in French Linen.
It’s gorgeous with a stained wood top, and really accents the beautiful shape of this entry table.
If you made it all the way to the end of this post, THANK YOU! You’re a trooper! If you felt inspired, you can order any and all of these Dixie Belle chalk paint colors HERE. Have fun painting, and please share your finished projects with me; I’d love to see what you’ve done!
