Beautiful Buffet Makeover

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
