Buffets have been a really popular item lately and I usually try to have one or two for each sale. I have come to the realization that I just cannot blog about each project, and I can’t even seem to find the time to blog about my favorite projects! So I decided to group a cluster of projects together! So, here are some of the recent buffet makeovers that I have done…
Original finish doors and drawers, body in custom mixed white chalk paint..
This French provincial buffet is my favorite so far!! It is finished in a custom graphite chalk paint with two different glazes.
I love keeping some of the original wood finish if at all possible.

I hope to update you on some other summer projects that have been going on around here soon!
I love the look of iron and reclaimed wood together, I feel like it brings the best of both worlds together…clean lines and old character.
I showed my dad some tables in the RH catalog a while back to see if he could weld some frames for me. He took down some measurements and next thing I know, he’s got a set of tables ready for some wood.
We have made a few sets of this style and have a slight variation to the style for the next round, just to keep things different…stay tuned for those!
I picked up this armoire at an estate sale a couple of weeks ago, I really liked the curvy lines so it came home with us! It was the typical late 70′s dark walnut finish, I forgot to take a before pic!
I started with a light grey diy chalk paint, followed by two different paint washes…the first was an onyx, which is almost black, then followed by a coco wash. The coco wash really softened up the black wash and tied it all together. I finished it off with some furniture wax from Miss Mustard Seed. It is by far the best furniture wax I have ever used, it smells like lotion and goes on oh so smooth!
Here are some pics…
