Revive to Survive

Revive to Survive

Vintage wood purists, prepare to clutch your pearls in horror, because Jacqui just unapologetically painted right over this antique buffet. Le gasp!

Now, unclutch your pearls and take a deep cleansing breath, because it really looks fabulous. See?  Nothing to be afraid of. She did juuuuust the right amount of aging and distressing.   Not to mention adding that sweet little decorative piece at the back, AND reviving the wood on top.  Everyone wins!

Lots more to see from Jacqui at Porta Verde Studio.

    I’m still trying to find a buffet like that for myself!

    It’s really, really beautiful. And amen to the “just the right amount” of distressing. I love a good age and distress as much as the next girl (a lot), but it seems like lately the trend has been towards aging to the point of high contrast. Which I do not love, I guess.

    That is gorgeous! I wouldn’t have looked twice at that piece in its original condition. Painted, it is fabulous. And I love the wood top. Bravo!

    Wow, beautiful! In the first pic I thought the top was black, and it would look beautiful that way too!
