I found this beautiful, but worn out and damaged, buffet a few weeks ago and I couldn't wait to start painting it! I like painting pieces at home, instead of at the shop. At home I can paint in the garage/studio and the girls can play outside. Much better than dragging them to the shop while I paint for a few hours at a time ;-)
This piece is a newer piece, but it had a lot of damage. I sanded and used wood filler to fix most of the cosmetic problems. I decide to paint this piece with Miss Mustard Seed Milk Paint. I used one of her European colors, 'Schloss'. It's a beautiful gray/brown and I just love it with the dark top!!
The top is a wood veneer but the veneer was so thin, it wouldn't stand up to me sanding out all of the water marks and rings. I decided to use Milk Paint on the top too, I used 'Curio' to give the look of a heavily stained wood top. I sealed the entire piece with MMS Tough Coat and then I added two coats of MMS antiquing wax on the top.
We had the perfect spot for it at the shop! Dimensions are at the shop so please feel free to call or email if you are interested! It's a biggie (and a heavy one!) and for sale at the shop for $595.
Hope you have a great week!!!!
