The hardest part of this project was the shear weight of the chest. The drawers weren't sliding smoothly and all the knobs had to be replaced. Easy, Sneazy.

This seven foot buffett is very, very heavy. Built of solid wood and then veneered with a thin layer of dark oak.
The veneer was chipping and flaking off every surface. And impossible for me to restore to the original surface. The knobs were heavy duty but very 60's.

My client wanted a painted design to fit in with her other restored pieces.
I sanded and painted the top with my custom chalk paint. Four coats, I sanded after each coat. This helped fill the badly damaged top.

Using a black and white damask tissue I decoupaged the top. When I use paper or tissue to decoupage, I do not use modge podge or similar products. I use water based, satin varathane. This gives me a much more durable surface.

I sanded it back and then antiqued and waxed the damask surface.

I mixed a custom cream chalk paint for the doors and body then painted three successive coats, sanding after each coat was cured.
I use a paste wax. Rubbing it into the chalk paint with an old paintbrush, then wiping off the excess. After the wax is dry to the touch, I use an electric buffer to buff to a high shine. I waxed and buffed this piece three times.
