Antique Jacobean Buffet
A beautiful antique jacobean buffet with beautiful detailing.
I love painting buffets. They are, sadly, becoming harder and harder to find.
A friend had messaged me on Facebook, saying that a buffet was being sold locally at a yard sale. What a friend!!
It had already been refinished. And although it was a great refinish, the natural wood grain took away from the beautiful detailing. I usually always keep the top a natural wood. I love the paint/wood combo
I wanted a weathered aged look. Layers and layers of paint, and glaze.
The two color gold was achieved with metallic paint and then gold mica powder with wax.
I think it works.
Happy to say that the buffet won 1st place in the Upcycling Pro category, held by General Finishes.
Enjoyed the project?
- Annie Sloan chalk paint
- Gold Mica Powder
- General Finishes glazes.
