Do you know all of the Dixie Belle blues my mom blended together on this 3-drawer dresser?
That’s OK — neither does she!
The Dixie Belle Paint Company palette includes more than a dozen shades of blue from so-light-it-almost-looks-white Haint Blue …
… to dark and mysterious In The Navy …
… and pretty much every other shade of blue you can think of in between.
Dixie Belle even has a blue called Dixie Belle Blue, an elegant Tiffany blue.
We sell all of the Dixie Belle blues (and all of the other colors too!) at our store All Things New Again in Leesburg, Virginia.

Dixie Belle Blues
Of course, all of the Dixie Belle blues are beautiful on their own like this client-owned buffet we recently painted Antebellum Blue.
But sometimes you just need to blend two different shades of blue together. Then you open a third jar. And by the time the dresser is finished, you don’t even remember all of the Dixie Belle blues you used on it.
That’s what happened to my mom with her dresser.
Normally that wouldn’t be a problem.
The dresser is beautiful, after all.
(It is also for sale. See our Furniture page for details.)
But how-the-heck am I supposed to write a tutorial on how to re-create this look if we can’t even remember all of the colors she used on this piece?
I’ll just show you a bunch of photos and we will try to figure it out together.
I’m 100% sure there are several streaks of Bunker Hill Blue going on here. Before In the Navy was released last summer, Bunker Hill was Dixie Belle’s darkest blue. (It is still my favorite of ALL the Dixie Belle colors!)
See the top section of that top drawer? That color is called The Gulf.
Or it might be Pure Ocean.
Those two beachy blues are so pretty, but I’m always mixing them up. It’s one or the other.
And that top section of the second drawer? That’s Dixie Belle Blue, the color I mentioned earlier.
It has to be. Right?
Honestly? I don’t know. It could be a custom mix my mom created while she was blending the Dixie Belle blues. We haven’t even talked about all of the amazing NEW shades of blue you can create!
All I know for sure is that the Dixie Belle Blues my mom blended on this dresser look beautiful.
Whatever they are!
