When the new Dixie Belle Painthouse opens in Northbrook

Dixie Belle is the newest member of the beloved Dixie house.

Owner Mark Schulte and her husband and partner Jason Schultes opened the first Dixie in May of last year and they’re just getting started.

The couple has already made it their mission to get this small-town town to love their new addition, and they want to make sure you get to see it for yourself.

“It’s the first time we’ve opened a new place in the city of Northbrook, and we’re going to make it our mission to make you want to come to Dixie, and to be a part of it,” Schultefs said.

The paintbrushes will be available at Dixie’s shop from 6-9 p.m. on Saturday, March 16.

The shop will have a “paint on tap” section, where patrons can pick their favorite paintbrush and try different paint styles.

The Schultests have been busy creating a large mural that will be featured in the store’s lobby, and you can even make a painting of yourself in the shop’s new “pinch pad.”

For those of you who are planning to visit the shop this weekend, you can also sign up to get the “Paint on Tap” paintbrush in-store.

The Schultestes hope that visitors to the store will have an opportunity to experience a new DVC Paintbrush and Paintbrush Paintworks for a limited time.

“We wanted to do something different and something that would capture the community’s imagination and make it a destination for people who want to be inspired by Dixie,” Schulde said.

It’ll be fun to see the new mural in person on Saturday.

The store’s first two floors are dedicated to home decor, which the Schultese’s are planning on turning into an artist studio.

The rest of the store is dedicated to art supplies, which are stocked at the back of the shop.

“I think the whole store will be pretty exciting, so I’m looking forward to seeing what happens, and how it’s going to affect the community,” Schulze said.

The store will also have a food truck area, a bar, and an outdoor patio area.

In addition to the painting and food truck, Dixie is also working on new furniture and a new outdoor kitchen.

Dixie will have several different paintbrushing services available, including a spray booth, a “mixer,” a “mixed palette,” and more.

Dixie Belveres shop will be open for business on Saturday from 6 p.am to 11 p..m., and you’ll be able to check out their store for yourself from 6 to 10 p.pm on Saturday at their shop.

If you’re interested in making a painting yourself, you’re welcome to take a look around the shop, which will have the ability to sell your paintings to a professional painter.
