Buffet To Media Cabinet

2 materials
2 Days
Needing something to put our basement tv on, we found this buffet at an antique store. The finish was in pretty bad shape so I decided to give it a distressed paint finish (I know some will cringe). This was my first time doing so. Although I'm not ecstatic about the way it turned out we're living with it. More info and photos on our blog.
As found at antique store.
After sanding off the old worn finish and applying a grey base coat.
I then painted it green, sanded through some spots and applied a light wood stain over the sanded spots.
Finished with a clear coat.

Suggested materials:

  • Paint   (Hardware store)
  • Sand paper   (Hardware store)
