The Buffets of Summer

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…

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.

Restoration Hardware Inspired Tables

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!

Grey Washed Armoire

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…
