Dresser Turned Buffet

 Dresser Turned Buffet

Here are some shots of a buffet I did for a client recently.  My client took some before shots but I couldn’t wait to get those before I posted the finished product.

The two of us went shopping for just the right piece for her dining room and as a last resort went to some salvage yards to see what we could find.  We discovered this great vintage dresser in pretty good condition with the original hardware and we decided that with a little paint treatment to make it a bit less formal, it would be the perfect buffet.

After stripping the whole piece, I used Benjamin Moore’s Coventry Gray for the outer color and Linen White for the sub color.  Then I did some light distressing and waxed it with a tinted wax for a more antiqued effect.  I left the top unpainted for a butcher block look which I love for pieces that will be used in a dining room or kitchen, and just finished it with the tinted wax.

My client was really happy with it and it does look so nice in her already lovely home.  Thanks for checking it out!

    Very pretty. The white underneath really gives it a nice depth. The hardware on this piece is amazing!
