Layered and Caked

Layered and Caked

Statia wanted some color in her very neutral living room, so she picked up this old buffet with the intention of sanding it a bit and slapping on a new coat of paint.  Then she realized that it had been painted and repainted so many times in its sordid past that a complete stripdown of the layers of caked on paint was necessary.  That process ended up taking a couple fun-filled months.  Ew.  So hats off to Statia for finishing, because I would have cried for a while and then set it on fire in the backyard.  But now it looks fantastique! Don’t you love those legs?   

See it on her blog Failure to Nap

    Lindsey, you’re a mess!

    Great color, and well worth the effort, as it looks manufactured. The top is very professional.

    I just saw a buffet just like this on CL for $100. If it was half that I’d buy it! LOVE yours!
