A friend’s Mom helped me out big time on this piece. A friend of hers was looking to sell this beautiful antique buffet and I was lucky enough that she thought of me! It looks like it’s in pretty decent shape but don’t let the photo fool you…
The top was a hot mess, the bottom drawer didn’t close, both side doors didn’t shut and the top two drawers were nearly impossible to slide in and out. Not to mention the smelly, old felt that lined the top drawer. WHY was that a thing?! (I found a pretty solid method for removing that nasty stuff which I’ll be sharing soon).
It does, however have great bones and is a BEAST.
I sanded down the top and gave it a fresh coat of stain to start off:
Next up I used DecoArt’s Chalky Finish paint in Refreshing.
I applied 3 coats and then distressed it like crazy to get the worn look.
Finishing touches were some white ceramic knobs from Hobby Lobby and some gorgeous paper from Rifle Paper Co.
