Redeemed French Buffet

When the seasons change, I often feel like my home needs an update. That was how I was feeling about my dining room, when I came across Miss Mustard Seeds Blog on Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. She had transformed her dining room by painting her china cabinets, buffet, and table and chairs. Beautiful. I had to find out where to get this incredible paint she was talking about that didn’t require the usual prep work of priming and sanding before application. When I googled the brand and the color chart came up, I knew Paris Grey was the color for me and I immediately ordered it online.

This piece has had many homes, when it was offered to me, being the furniture hog that I am, I accepted and have stored it in my basement for several years.  I thought it was the perfect candidate for painting since the shape was pretty, but the finish was scratched and damaged.

Some of the hardware on this piece was damaged also, so I replaced the hardware with modern stainless steal to update the overall appearance.   I am liking the “modern edge” it gives the piece.  Since painting this beauty I have found two more pieces for this room that I will be showcasing in the days ahead.  Loving how the room is coming together!

Thanks for stopping by.
