Louis Blue and Graphite Buffet


Nancy and I purchased this buffet from one of our friends.  She knew it would be gorgeous when it was painted, but she did not have time to do it herself.  


We had this buffet for sale at Loot for a while just as it was because it was pretty without paint too.  It did not sell, so we gave it a Chalk Paint makeover.


Nancy chose the colors: Graphite for the top and Louis Blue for the bottom.  I also added a little Old White for the trim and waxed the entire piece with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint.


I removed the door pulls, that were not original to the piece and looked a bit awkward, covering part of the carved inset on the doors. I patched the holes where the pulls were and I think it is fine to use the key when the doors need to be opened.  


Our original plan was to use a colored wax over the Louis Blue, but when I saw it painted, against the Graphite, I really liked the contrast between the bright blue and dark top.  I left the hardware with the aged brass patina.


We brought the buffet to Goat Hill and received a lot of compliments on it.  We staged it on the front porch with my Louis Blue mirror and two very special lamps I will share with you soon.
