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?
