Modern Buffet in Picket Fence

I know I said I would not paint this piece.

But I changed my mind.

This buffet sat for sale in my retail space for a few months bare. There was a little interest in it- painted.

Eventually I decided that I did want to paint it- at least part of it. This piece is beautiful, but there is not anything inherently special about the wood- unlike the burled wood on this dresser. That I would never touch.

I wanted to preserve the fine wood and yet modernize this piece.

So I chose to leave the top as is since it didn’t have any scratches or gouges, and paint the base.

I love this look!

I brushed on two coats of Picket Fence All Things New Interiors Chalk Paint. It instantly updated the piece and made it so fresh!

I feel like the details aren’t as lost anymore. I chose not to distress since this is a more modern piece with straight lines.

I sealed it with Trewax and admired the beauty. I so wanted to keep her but my husband was right- we couldn’t and didn’t need another large storage piece in our dining room. Sad, but I know someone will love her!

What do you think of the new look of this buffet? Are you a fan of the white paint?

For sale at BrickCity Emporium in Fort Smith, AR for $295.
