Antique Buffet Makevoer {Old Ochre + Coco}


This buffet was pulled from a wood working shop where it was being used as a workbench. The condition was awful, but the bones were good and I knew she had potential.

The structure overall was fantastic, but so much peeling veneer, missing detailing and cosmetic and surface damage.

After lots of peeling of veneer and repairing of damage...this is the finished piece.

For a complete refreshing, I painted inside the doors and drawers with ASCP Coco and coated it in a satin poly.

    I love it very refreshing. I actually have a piece I started with coco and old ochre and it just wasn't right for the piece so I out it to the side but I will be painting something else with those colors in the future on a dresser.
