Buffet Makeover..Finally!!

Well girls, I finally had a chance to get my free buffet (found in the trash) completed!
I had been waiting on the chalk paint I had ordered and after a few minor glitches it
finally made it here! I will be honest and say at first I was not sure about this product but
I wanted to give it a fair chance. It goes on very flat, almost like a primer with a different texture. 
I had also never used wax before and that is definately a new favorite product!!
After two coats of chalk paint, coat of wax, sanding, and another small coat of wax she is finished..whew!
I moved her in last night and put her in the dining room. I had to do a little rearranging (oh darn) to
fit her but I do love how she turned out.
Wanna see...?? Ok, ok..here she is..



Well..what do ya think?? I love all the details the paint brought out and I distressed heavily in some areas. I'm still not feeling the red paint on the walls.. did I mention these ceilings are 20 feet high?? Scaffolding would be required to get it painted..ugh!!

I can't wait to show you what I did with the old door I scored last week!!
Come back and check it out!

I joined the party over at Miss Mustard Seed


  1. WOW! Looks great! I cant wait to see your door. I really love how it turned out. I am going to have to order me some of that paint.

  2. So jealous! If I find a similar piece, I may want you to come help me get started to make it look nice like yours :)

  3. I can't believe you got this for free! I'm so jealous. It's absolutely wonderful :)

  4. Well done!!!
    Looks great!
    Have a pretty day!
