White Buffet


Getting back to work after a nice break and feeling refreshed! I just finished a white buffet that I am loving! It has that shabby chic appeal to it. I love buffets. I recently moved my dining room buffet into the living room for my TV.

I know, I said I would never move it!! Never say never.

This buffet is different than any I have done before. That always makes it fun.


I absolutely love all the details. I light painted over them and let the natural wood shine through. I love the spindly legs.

It is painted in white and waxed in clear. I let the paint technique be the distressing.

I left the original hardware on it and add a little paint to them also.

I have changed the hardware before on this buffet but when the hardware is awesome I leave it.


The drawers in this piece are awesome. One with dividers and the other is so deep.
Yes I hid some of my Christmas stuff in it. (You got me)

This is the before


Don't mind my mess!!



I know this piece won't last long. If it doesn't sell I don't mind having it for awhile :)

Buffet and hutches are my favorite thing to paint and sell!

Do you have a favorite thing to sell? What is it? 
Every area is different. What sells best for you?

Love all the detail on that sideboard! It's beautiful and I hope it goes quickly! If you asked me 3 weeks ago "what sells?" I'd say "nothing". But since moving to the new location, I am really selling furniture so far. I love making small, pretty handcrafted things but they don't move as well and take MUCH more time than a whole piece of furniture!
But....that could all change...the public can be fickle!! LOL
