Buffet Re-do Reveal

I FINALLY finished my Goodwill buffet makeover.  Remember I was trying to emulate the amazing Tobi Fairley's gorgeous pieces?  Well, with a lot of blood, sweat, and tears...actually mostly just sweat...I got 'er done!

Remember the Before:









I really wish I could have staged it in a room with some cute lamps and a picture above but this thing is a BEAST!  If only I had two husbands!  A girl can dream ;)   So...I went classy and took a picture in the nasty garage!  Just imagine it in a cute room all fancied up!

What I did:
Sanded and filled in any missing wood with Elmers wood filler.

Paint:

Paint:  Behr color: Espresso Beans, Finish: eggshell
White:  Spray painted the drawers and doors in Rustoleum white in semi-gloss finish
Used oil based poly for the brown sections and water based poly for the white sections.

Hope you like!

    Hugs,

  4. This looks amazing. I love two toned furniture. I did a retro piece last year where I painted the old laminate with white gloss and just polished up the timber. Love this more traditional piece though.

  13. That is one gorgeous makeover! The lines on that piece are so good, and you really did justice to them with your paint choices. So, so gorgeous... I can easily imagine that piece placed in a swank apartment
