A client brought this grand buffet to me to have it painted for her dining room in a new house she just bought. It is such a beautiful piece of furniture with stunning details.
It may be hard to tell from the pictures, but this is a huge piece of furniture.
This is not the best after picture because the lighting in the back room at Loot is not the best and there was no way to move this piece around to better lighting.
I painted the buffet with Graphite Chalk Paint and then distressed all the edges, so the wood underneath showed through. I used Annie Sloan clear wax and then thinned the dark wax with mineral spirits to make a glaze that deepened the graphite. The paint makes the details stand out and I love the way the dark paint contrasts with the brass hardware.
