This gorgeous antique buffet belonged to the same set of the Depression Era hutch I just refinished. Two beautiful pieces of furniture. This piece had quite a bit of veneer damage and the previous owner had tried to fix it but didn't do a very good job. I didn't want to peel all that lovely veneer off for a few icky spots so I smoothed it out the best I could and then went ahead and painted it. I always say--these are not new pieces of furniture. It's normal for them to show their love. ;)
There are so many beautiful details on this piece, It gave me a good workout when I distressed them all! :)
Someone recently asked me if sanding between every coat was really necessary. You already know my answer. Lol. If you want an outstanding finish I believe sanding between every coat is necessary. I know it's a lot more work, but I promise you it is worth it.
Detailing on the back piece.
I just love these legs. Chunky, turned, fluted....what more could a girl ask for???
Another gorgeous mahogany top. I sanded it down to the bare wood, gave it 1 coat of Java Gel from General Finishes and finished it with 3 coats of Varathane in Satin.
Color= All Surface Enamel in stock black from Sherwin Williams
Have a great weekend!
