I spotted the cutest buffet on Craigslist the other day.
I just had to get it!
She needed a full body makeover 😉
She was an orangey wood…and sadly no one likes orangey wood furniture anymore.
I wanted to go dark and dramatic so I chose to use Country Chic’s Chalk Paint in Liquorice.
It’s a great paint and it’s fun to mix up the products I use every now and then.
My only issue with this piece was those pesky two side doors.
They just didn’t want to close.
I sanded them and sanded them yet I still couldn’t get them to close!
It was MADDENING.
I was ready to give up on her.
I was on the verge of losing my mind when the thought came over me…perhaps I should just take them off?
At this point I was out of options…and patience….so why not?
Surprisingly…this choice turned out to be a good choice and the end result was awesome!!!
So despite a Plan B approach on this one, all went well and she turned out beautifully!
I truly wish I could find a spot for her in my home 😉
