The holidays are so busy aren’t they?
I admit I got swept away in busyiness despite trying NOT to do so.
I am not sure I mentioned this, but in addition to running my furniture painting business, I took on a part-time job as well.
Time has been so tight!
I am adjusting this new schedule and working on my side business outside of my other job so its been a little crazy.
Sorry if I haven’t been able to keep up on my blog so well, but I will keep on trying!
Anyway, since I have been so busy keeping up with posting on my makeovers has proved a challenge.
Let’s see if I can play catch up!
I purchased this cute as a button server from a gal I know.
I loved her size and neat bowed front.
She wasn’t perfect by a long shot and I needed to do some repairs on her doors to make them close properly and a good deal of the raised trim pieces were missing on the doors and drawers.
Typically I pull old trim pieces from my scrap wood pile to add them, but I didn’t have enough pieces sooooooo I had to resort to Plan B.
Leave it be and call her imperfect.
I really like that plan actually.
I never claimed my work was perfect and embracing that truth is sort of liberating!
The wood on the top of the buffet was pretty nice so I chose to keep it.
I sanded it down to remove the old finish and show off the lovely wood grain.
I stained it with Minwax’s Dark Walnut and then sealed it in a few coats of poly.
Saving that delicious wood top was a great choice as it came out beautifully!
I painted the base in Annie Sloan’s French Linen (a warm greige) – it is a favorite color of mine for sure!
Perfect for any room of your home as it is so pretty and a lovely neutral.
I sealed the piece up in Annie Sloan’s Clear Wax.
She came out quite lovely!
She’s pretty isn’t she?
The lady that purchased her thought so too!
Her future will involve being the most awesome of coffee bars…what a fabulous idea 🙂
