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

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!
