Hey guys! I finally finished this thrift store gem I got several months ago, and I think it looks a million times better now. Here’s how it looked in the store:
Ever since I got it home I knew I wanted to paint it turquoise blue. It’s been way too long since I used my Provence Annie Sloan Chalk Paint so I happily pulled it out for this guy. Being a beast from the seventies, the paint tends to soak in, especially on all the details on the doors. Maybe next time I’ll remember to prime first before just jumping in!
I finished it off with Annie Sloan’s clear wax.
I painted the inside shelves too but forgot to take a photo with the doors open.
Such a pretty buffet makeover, right?
Usually I’m a fan of keeping the original hardware if it’s in good shape, but this piece really spoke to me and said it needed some new glass knobs. I agreed, and Hobby Lobby had the perfect ones. <3
Here’s a handy before and after image:
I hope you lovelies have a wonderful weekend! It has finally reached the 70s here in Indiana and I AM LOVING IT.
Tomorrow we’re having a big birthday party for the boys (which means I need to go clean my house now… ahem) but stop by again Monday for another awesome furniture makeover that may or may not be sponsored by Decor Steals! 😉 (Don’t miss it!)
