My Buffet Before & After

Hello friends one exhausted blogger stopping for a few minutes to share my refurbished buffet.  Here is the after.

Most of you know I’m remodeling my kitchen and this piece just was not going to fit with the new d├ęcor.  Do you remember  the before?

It is a good piece with lovely features but they just don’t show up and the natural wood just does not go with my Paris Gray and white walls.  Also its just  not shabby chic enough for me.

So I gave it a coat of primer just to cut down on the amount of ASCP Pure White I would have to use.  I stripped the top and then stained it with an Early American stain.

I then painted the buffet white and the front door panels and drawer fronts Louis Blue. I then waxed the base and top back with clear wax and distressed it.  The top I sealed with four coats of a satin polyurethane.

By the way don’t you just love my little antique clock I picked up at Wuslu?

After I distressed it I applied another coat of clear wax and a little dark wax here and there to give it more of an aged look.  I liked the hardware so I just cleaned it up and put it back on.

I love how it turned out especially the way the details pop now.  What do you think? Should I paint the hardware?

Hope I have inspired you today its back to work in the kitchen for me.  Have a great weekend everyone. Princess

Wow! What a great transformation. I love the color combo and think you should leave the hardware as is. Just my humble opinion. :)
