Lovely Buffet


I spotted this buffet at a city wide yard sale. I knew in a second it was coming home with me!!! I took it home and set about making it over it did have some veneer issues. So I glued and filled where I could. I used MMS paint in French enamel. Did some detailing in a watered down white and gave it a good coat of wax. I knew it wouldn't last long when I put it on FB for sale it only took 5 minutes for it to sale! Which was probably a good thing because I was debating how I could drag it into my dining room!

    What color did you use?
    And what kind of paint and finish did you use?

      I used Miss Mustard Seed milk paint in French Enamel. Then did a light white wash on details. Sealed it with polycrylic.

    Very nice. I had a buffet very similar to this that I gave to my daughter. It needs to be refinished. Since it is a veneer, I would have no problem painting over it. I am going to show this to my daughter.
