Updating An Art Deco Buffet

This Art Deco style buffet is a doozy isn’t it? Would you have bought it… even if it was a “good” price… it looks quite beat-up?

BEFORE

Check out the damage that the top had suffered! I wasn’t sure if I could repair it or not…

But I tried & I was very happy that with some sanding, stain and oil it came out looking great!

I tried to pay homage to the time period, while also updating it. I thought that the Provence Annie Sloan chalk paint was the perfect blue for this piece! A light distressing and a coat of clear wax finishes up the painted sections.

After sanding the top I stained it Dark Walnut and then oiled it with Watco Danish Oil in dark walnut finishing up with a coat of wax for all of the stained parts.

Didn’t think the top would turn out this nicely did you?

I refinished and reused the original handles, which I really glad I did… they’re just perfect for this piece!

Whether you’re a fan of Art Deco or not I hope you like this little update! It’s amazing what a little know-how and some sandpaper will do to revive a piece that looks like it is on its last legs!

Thanks as always for stopping by!

Until next time!
