For the love of buffets....

Who deosn't love a great buffet?

Seriously, they are my best sellers.

Such a versatile piece....

We found this one

and a friend snatched up

before I had time to paint it.

So she got to chose her finish.

She is using it for all of her

Grandkids toys and games.


We used a medium oak on the top.

Painted the body a cottage white and

then used stain and ragged it off

to make the details pop.

There are no raised moldings on this

piece, so I was happy that the stained

areas made the details come alive.

How about you,

do you love buffets?

Blessings,

Leigh Ann

  2. Cute blog name, BTW, Leigh!

    So cute and freshened up with white! Nice job. Thank you for seeing "crisp and fresh" where others might see "dingy and dated...oh yeah and DARK"

  4. You sure did a great job. I can see why your friend snatched it up. The buffet has beautiful lines and is a real showstopper now that you freshened it up. I'm your newest follower and I can't wait to read more. I hope you can stop by Cottage and Creek and say 'hi.'

  5. Gorgeous results! If there are no raised details them what did the stain pick up for the decoration on the front? I made the pictures bigger but I'm having a hard time making out the details. Is it carved?
