A Beautiful Buffet Makeover

While I was searching out pictures for my Quickfire Hydrangeas posts, I came across this post for a buffet I made over last summer. The pictures were taken on my back porch.

That reminded me that, indeed, there was a time here that the sun did shine and my back porch was not covered in snow.


It also reminded me that I did the post as a guest post, but had never posted it here.

And that is such a shame. 

Because she's a beauty.




She was very ugly.




Bless her heart.




She wasn't aging well.



She got a little skin resurfacing.

I used:

2 coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White
a little Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Coco to accent
2 coats of Annie Sloan Clear Wax
a little bit of Annie Sloan Dark Wax

That's it.



Isn't she lovely?


I wish I could see her again.

But she lives with someone else.


Sometimes you just have to learn to say goodbye.

At least you didn't just kick the old lady out because she was ugly.

What a great job you did on that piece.

That must have been a sad day when you had to wave goodbye as the old lady went down the road. xo Diana

Oh that is a beauty! I'm lucky to have my very own buffet transformed with the help of YOU! Of course..I'm going to have to paint it again because NOTHING is green in my new home. Can you believe it??

A lovely old dame like that deserves the beautiful make over you gave her. I am sure she is quite happy in her new home. And, yes, I did notice you mentioned the Quick Fire hydrangeas again!
