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?
