Gorgeous Buffet/Hutch Makeover




I don't tackle very many large projects like this
buffet/hutch, but when I do I am always thrilled with the end result and it makes 
the hard work worth the effort.


Here it is in it's original (and very good) condition after 20-something years.


First a coat of Annie Sloan chalk paint in pure white.


Top coat is Provence (Annie Sloan Chalk Paint) plus clear wax and some light distressing.


I added a little dark wax on the distressed areas before using the clear wax, to try and give it a darker
tint.


The finish on the surface is like glass. Such a lovely product to work with.


The owner is planning to finish it with some black iron handles
which will look great.


I am so delighted with the result that I am tempted to drag my own hutch out to the garage
and give it a makeover!!!


Happy Weekend everyone!

Lovley! You have done an amazing makeover and it looks so brilliant and new. It seems that you have brought it new from the market. Good work gal!
