Beautiful Buffet Enhanced With Chalk Paint

 As you can imagine, I’m very excited to be writing this post on my new blog.  It’s going to take some getting used to but I think I”m going to LOVE it!  There are so many new things to explore and learn.  Thankfully, Kristi from Linauer will be giving me a private coaching lesson next week.  How many questions can I get answered in an hour?  She is full of knowledge and I…well, lets not even go there!  Haha!

SAM_4566It’s always a dream come true when ever I can stumble across a beautiful buffet.  They are in high demand with great reason.  I threw out a question earlier today on my Facebook page if I should add “French graphics” to the little side doors but the majority voted to leave it as is!  This beautiful will definitely be a feature at this month’s Vintage Market.


So many new things happening in April.  Today we got a program to help enhance my photos.  I’m not sure we’ll even get to all that until next month but I’m looking forward to all the possibilities.  If I can delete shadows and brighten pictures that seem a little dark and make them sparkle, I will be one happy little artist!

SAM_4348 I used ASCP Paris Grey for the base coat the CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White over the top.  I then used a damp cloth to distress and clear wax to protect the finish.  The original knobs and hinges were in perfect condition but gold so I had my husband spray paint them with Rust-Oleum Textured Brown.  LOVE this stuff, use it all the time.

SAM_4564Now, lets see if I can post this without any hiccups!

  2. I noticed your new blog layout as soon as your page opened up, Judy! I love it! This buffet is a great piece. I’d love to find something like this myself to add to my booth for display. I need something long like this {as long as it fits in the back of my Sorento!}. I like it “as is”, too!
