When my friend Katie sent me an email asking if I was interested in buying her buffet, it was love at first sight!
isn’t it gorgeous?
It was in perfect condition and I couldn’t wait to get started.
Looking back at my recent projects, I realized almost everything I had painted this year was either cream or blue/mint. So, I decided to switch it up and go bold!
I chose mustard yellow (maybe I was subconsciously inspired by my most recent letterpress project!)
I was a little concerned that the bright color might be too much for such a large piece so I decided to try something new and added a few hand painted white accents to help break up the color.
I just love the lines and curves of this piece!
It made it so easy to know where to paint the highlights…
This is a completely new technique for me but it was actually really fun to paint with a tiny little brush
I also decided to add patterned drawer liner to the the inside surfaces and just love the way the grey looks with the mustardy yellow paint
This beauty is available for sale at Orange! Would be perfect in your dining room for your Christmas dinner spread. Go check it out!
