Recreating a Dresser Design on Canvas

#canvasart #lotustheorydesigns #dixiebellepaint

So, I did a thing. Never having painted on canvas before (at least not without wine, my girlfriends, and a paint instructor), I decided to take the plunge and try something new. I have always wanted to try my hand at canvas painting but something held me back. It wasn't until my recent dresser, where I freehand painted a flower-scape, I realized I was being silly and told myself - Girl, pick up that brush!

And so, before my newfound burst of courage would have a chance to retreat back into hiding, I immediately ran to the nearest craft store and purchased a canvas. I didn't stop there and got right to work as soon as I made it back to my studio. It was a "Paint this canvas or BUST" situation.

This time I decided to document my efforts by way of video! But before I get into that, here's the supply list.


Drop Cloth


Stormy Seas


Muscadine Wine

Collard Greens

Farmhouse Green

Coffee Bean


Mud Puddle

Gold Digger (Moonshine Metallic)

• And lastly, though not a color, it should be noted I used Dixie Belle Mud in White to create the raised stencil!

The canvas slightly varies from the dresser, which was intentional. On the dresser I did a straight base of Buttercream, rather than a blend of Drop Cloth and Burlap like on the canvas.

I also learned painting on canvas rather than the smooth substrate of furniture is quite different. In the future, I will remember that nugget of info and apply accordingly. Yes, I said in the future. Canvases everywhere, I'm coming for you! 😂
