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!


 Small Buffet Makeover with Paint

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!

    1. Simply beautiful!!!!!!!!!!!! Just starting chalk painting and need to wax some pieces. I have some light and dark soft wax but not sure how much to use, no instructions! Could use a little help please and thanks.

    2. 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?

    3. I love it I have a simial cabnet with the hutch 🙂 what color paint is that? and what kind of wax did you use? Thank you for inspiration!!!!

    4. 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.
