Here we have another piece that I'm going to have trouble parting with :) This is starting to become a problem for me.
This buffet (or dresser) is my idea of perfection. I'll take you through all of the steps it took to get to perfection, though.
Remember the 'before'? It came in the furniture delivery last weekend. That bunny belongs to my 4 year old niece. Apparently, the bunny is lost :)
With the top stripped & sanded...
Top taped off, ready to paint the body of it.
Gorgeous drawers, wrapped to prevent any paint getting inside. They have such a beautiful shape.
Painted & ready for stain on the top.
Top with walnut stain still wet, thus the shimmering effect in the picture!
The cabinet doors being painted & distressed. It is interesting, there is beadboard on the back of the doors. Odd?
I couldn't resist popping a drawer in, just to get a glimpse of what it was going to look like. I gave the hardware a touch of ORB (oil rubbed bronze paint) to tone down the black finish just a smidge.
And here she is, in my dining room. Don't you think she wants to stay?!
Thanks for visiting!
