Chalk Paint and a Vintage Buffet

The great thing about what we do is giving new life to a piece from the past.  We bring it into our present with thoughts of those who might have enjoyed it and give it new life hoping that it will be here in our future.   We must save Vintage Pieces that are tucked away in dusty barns and dirty attics.

On one of our “junking” trips we bought this amazing buffet that I “just” had a feeling about.  I couldn’t walk away from it for some reason.

It rested in our paintng room for several weeks before we moved  her into our main room and decided it was time to tackle our biggest project.   I want you to come by our store and see this for yourself!!  My daughter Cassie is our genius talent on this piece and I’m sure it won’t be in our store long,  so if you have a need for an amazing, stunning buffet you must come by and see this it.

This is how it started out.

This piece of the past has great bones…

Here’s a great picture of it.  We are trying to decide if we are keeping the hardware…

Yes, we are keeping the original hardware.

Cassie began by repairing the top surface scratches with wood putty and lightly sanding it smooth.  Then she started with one coat of Chalk Paint.

Here’s a shot of the new inside before we paint it.

We painted it with 2 coats of Chalk Paint and 1 of Clear Wax.  Cassie distressed the buffet and it is beautiful.
