Oh how I’ve missed you!!! I feel like I haven’t posted in forever!
Please forgive me.. I’ve been out the past few days searching for some new pieces to paint. It’s a hard job, but someone has to do it.
I found some amazing pieces and so many neat treasures I want to share with you, but I’ll only share a few of them today.
This past Friday, I spied a beautiful buffet on Craigslist for an unbeatable price! Luckily, it was still available when I called, and so we made the trip to San Antonio to pick it up.
Buffets are one of my favorite pieces to paint. I just love the style of them. There is truly, nothing like an antique buffet.
What I loved most about this one were the details on the doors, the legs and the knobs on the drawers. I also loved that it still had the back piece attached. For some reason, these antique buffets tend to lose that piece first.
When I first walked in, I spotted this antique wooden tray. I love the aged, distressed wood and the overall size of it. Wouldn’t it be perfect for breakfast in bed?
I can dream right?
I picked up this candle holder while I was there as well. I don’t know if it is an antique, but I loved that it looked aged. It made for a perfect candle holder for my Fall mantle.
Finally, I spied this serving dish, and just had to have it! I’m pretty sure I’m going to paint the inside with chalkboard paint… I just think it would make for a beautiful message board!
I wonder how many of you out there are yelling, “NOOOOOOO!!!”
So, I’ll share my other finds throughout the rest of the week.
Are you ready to see this AMAZING buffet transformation?
I started out with ASCP in Chateau Grey.
I painted those lovely details on the doors with ASCP in Old White.
When I was all done, I added a coat of clear wax, and then dark wax to bring out the details I loved so much.
Look at those beautiful drawer pulls!!
Here she is completed.
I have already begged Hubby to let me keep her.
He said no.
In fact, his exact words were… “I will NOT let you be a furniture hoarder! Sell it!”
on the inside.
I also got an early birthday present this weekend.
I got a new camera!!! So, as I learn how to use it, you may see some unusual shots. I particularly loved this one of my Gidget girl….
Tomorrow I’ll be working on finishing up an antique tea cart! LOVE it!!
