I broke my self-imposed furniture diet to buy this piece at Deseret Industries…how could I resist?
Although the body was in pretty good shape, the top had been scratched up quite a bit.
I painted the base with the same color as my other gray buffet, but I used it in my homemade chalk paint recipe.
The proportions are 2 T. unsanded tile grout mixed with 2 T. water, then mixed in to 1 c. latex paint.
Then I used a little white chalk paint (homemade) to dry-brush over all the details.
The handles are original; I just re-painted them with oil-rubbed bronze spray paint.
The top did not quite turn out like I envisioned! I wanted a stained top, but I wasn’t crazy about the color of the wood next to the gray. So it actually ended up getting stained darker than it looks in these pictures…but I sold it before I took an after-the-after picture!
Guess that’s not really something to complain about, is it??
