Before & After: Auction Buffet

Happy Thursday! This week’s before & after submission is from Stylish Patina reader, Jada. Jada is an avid furniture refresher, she says, “I love to take old pieces of furniture and bring them back to life with paint“. Well, we are glad she does because this week she is sharing a beautiful buffet with us!

Jada found this buffet at auction and knew immediately that it had so much potential.

Here is a before shot of the buffet.


Jada knew this piece needed a little TLC – so she decided to paint it! Her process included:

– 2 coats of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Coco
– 1 coat of Annie Sloan Chalk Paint in Old White
– Sanded and distressed the dresser by hand
– Dry brushed Old White in different areas
– 2 coats of clear wax & 1 coat of dark wax in areas that needed a more aged look
– Original hardware sprayed with Rustoleum Rubbed Oil Bronze
– Decoupaged drawers with vintage wrapping paper

And without further ado – here is Jada’s finished project, keep scrolling for detail shots!

    Although I prefer wood color in my furniture, you did an awesome job with this gorgeous buffet!

    Kelly……check out Decorator Girl online. Liz is the daughter of your Uncle Mike’s sister so our niece just like you. She lives in Jacksonville, FLA. She also paints furniture, & she reminds me of you……similar tastes, etc. She emailed you a couple of years ago & never heard back. xo
