Small Buffet Makeover-with Paint

Refresh a Buffet Sideboard with Paint and Stain

Let me show you how to wake up a tired, worn and dirty buffet.

I have a theory.

If it’s all wood, you can save it!

So when I saw this piece, I knew

that it would be ok.  I wish you could see the top better (cell phone pic) it was scratched like nobody’s business.

I sanded and sanded and sanded some more and then I scrubbed it clean.

Next I stained the top with Kona stain.  And then I cracked open a can of Maison Blanche in Chloe and painted the base with 2 coats of paint.

I got excited about the way my little green friend was turning out.

With a top so rich, I knew her hardware had to oil rubbed bronze!

Distressed and waxed with dark wax she’s ready for her debut.

This is how to makeover a buffet with paint.

    This is beautiful when you were finished! Loved all the choices. I am currently redoing some old dressers for our room, and I was wondering, with the stain and the paint, did you put any type of clear coat on them afterwards? My boyfriend got a clear finish (spray) and was just wondering if that is normal. Never refinished anything before.

    Debbie ~ I love it!!! You are so creative! I see that the hinges are painted green. How did you get make the hinges not stick when opening?

      Debbie says:

      Hey Deborah, after the paint dries, just open and close the doors several times and then apply the wax. Because the piece is distressed, the part that comes off just looks like it happened naturally. Thanks!
