A Perfect Catch All Piece for the Kitchen
My client Tina recently brought me this peitite buffet to make all pretty for her. She found the buffet on Craig’s List, it was the perfect size for the catch-all spot in her kitchen… you know a place where you can hide all of the “crap” you don’t want to look at! While this piece fit her needs size wise… it was not cosmetically what she wanted in her beautiful kitchen.
The buffet did have quite a few minor problems (and a lot of gunky buildup) which I took care of prior to painting but overall it was in pretty good shape for its age…
She wanted the buffet painted in Old White and the drawer fronts is a mix of Duck Egg & Old White (3:1), it truly is a very pretty combination!
I didn’t distress it too much… and I used Briwax wax to seal the paint.
She had purchased these cute acrylic knobs from Pottery Barn, I like them so much better than the original knobs… they add a touch of whimsy to the piece…
The buffet didn’t have a lot of detailing to it, but where there was detail I wanted to highlight it.
I also carried the blue up to the top back…
I hope she will enjoy seeing this buffet in her kitchen now!
I really adore this petite buffet and could totally use it just about anywhere in my house… hmmm… now I need to look for one like this to update for myself!
A special thanks to Tina for being such a wonderful repeat client… you keep bringing them and I’ll keep making them look awesome!
Thanks so much for stopping by…
Until next time!!!
