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!
- Distressed and waxed with dark wax she’s ready for her debut.
Meet Miss Chloe!
This is how to makeover a buffet with paint.
She feels so much better 😉

Love the green color. Such a fresh update
Quick question, did you paint using a brush or using a spray gun?
Thanks Colleen, I used a paint brush.
Beautiful! Love the color
I love this buffet I have one that is similar to it…..now I am thinking it is time to update it!!!
Your dresser turned out great and I love that color!
I love how you made it new again, but kept it’s old-fashioned style in place too. It’s gorgeous!
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.
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?
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!
Awesome! I appreciate your answer. Have a wonderful day!
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!!!!
Hey Carrie, I use Maison Blanche furniture wax. Thank you!
Chloe looks great . I love this color too, I painted my porch this color a few years ago !
Thank you so much!
That is beautiful!
What is dark wax
It is a wax made by Maison Blance, especially for furniture!
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.
I would have never thought to go with that green but boy do I LOVE it! Great job!
Thanks Michelle 🙂
This is just lovely!
Sooooooo pretty! I love the makeover, and the color you chose…. 🙂

What technique did you use to distress the furniture?
