Painted Buffet

I picked this antique buffet up at auction a while back. I always have these with the mirrored back. It has great lines and details. I had to look past the awful hardware and puke green paint. Here is the before:

Try and look away from all the my junk and find the buffet. The garage is my area. I actually cleaned up a little this week. As you can see my 77 Bronco gets parking priority in our garage!

After sanding I decided to go with a classic look. I painted it a satin white and let some of the before green peek through. I lightly distressed this piece and then waxed. I replaced and added all new hardware. All from hobby lobby. I painted the inside of the middle compartment a mint green. I have started waxing all the drawers and slides and have found out it helps alot. Smooth opening! Here is the after. So far no luck selling, but hopefully she will find a new home soon!

TGIF!! Have a  safe and happy weekend!
