Found this buffet for $70 at a local resale shop. Beadboard wallpaper and homemade chalk first attempt at both, so it was a learning

    Love it. Did you try varnish over the wall paper? I have a project of my own and am trying to learn from others. Thanks.

    Yes. Very easy to do. I'm having a little trouble with areas around the drawer handles, though. It would be fine for a piece that wasn't used much, but the paper is a little spongy and gets scratches from fingernails. Just my husband and I so we've adapted to being really careful with the drawers. I still love the way it looks and it was super easy...just maybe not the best for drawer fronts.

    It looks so real, I love it!! If it doesn't hold up to time, you can always remove it....well, anything you do, you can redo it. Good Luck though!
