I have been craving a buffet refinish for what seems like forever!! And now that I've finally gotten my paws on one, I know why :) This gorgeous antique buffet is likely from the 1920's - 1930's and, well, they just don't make them quite like this any more. I was inspired by another refinish I'd seen in the same colors, and once again it turned out pretty much 0% how I thought it would, but as lovely as I'd imagined at the same time! This one is in Annie Sloan Chalk Paint Paris Grey and Cream. I also restained the top for a gorgeous, more modern twist to this classic piece.
And here's one more, this time with the top trim on. I personally love it without, though!
I actually have another buffet in the wings, so to speak.. Can't wait! And if you're curious about the Color Story : Inspiration behind this piece, I'd love to share! I just adore the soft, bluish hues in this Paris Grey paint juxtaposed with a buttery Cream. I weathered to a light shabby chic to reveal some of the gorgeous natural wood, and added a smooth, rich, nutty brown color in the stain. You can see these warm and cool colors paired together in the Texas Cedar and also this amazing Julia Child rose from my garden.
