My Big, Beautiful Buffet

14,455 Views
A few weeks ago, I acquired this beauty at a yard sale. It was a set of 3 matching pieces. I waited on inspiration to hit. And it finally did.

I decided to paint the top and I used a mixture of ASCP Graphite and Coco. I love the color those two created. It was a nice, rich, dark gray. For the front and sides I used ASCP Old White. I waxed it using ASCP Clear and Dark Wax. I also spray painted the drawer pulls in Oil-Rubbed Bronze. Enjoy the after pics!

I'm in love with this piece, especially the top. The dark wax just adds so much. I wish I could keep this beauty!!:) Check out my blog for more pics!

    I actually own almost this exact piece, it was my grandmothers. I think your treatment is lovely, but does it devalue it vs a good refinishing job? Mine is mahogany and has an ornamental filigreed back board on the top.
