We really hit the estate sale find of the year with this piece! This French Provincial Buffet was structurally in amazing condition and really just needed a facelift. The great thing about finding French Provincial pieces is that they offer so much detail that you do not find in newer furniture. French provincial pieces are elegant, beautiful and high quality. This specific piece that we purchased for less than $50 offered five drawers and two cabinets. The buffet offered all of that storage but didn't take up too much room. We knew right away that this buffet would be the perfect piece to refinish in Chalked Linen White Ultra Matte Paint. First, we cleaned this piece really well as you do not want your paint to attach to any residue or dirt lingering on your piece of furniture. Second, we lightly sanded down this piece which is not necessary for chalk paint. However, I always lightly sand to give something for the paint to adhere to. Of course you have to go and clean off the dust. Next, I applied the first coat of paint on this piece and since I was painting it white, I would need to do at least two more coats. I refinished the handles in a gray color while waiting for the paint to dry. After the three coats of the white chalk paint was finally dry, I took 220 fine grit sand paper to apply a light distressing. Once I got the desired look, I took out my Matte Protective Top Coat and applied to coats of that to ensure the durability of the finish on this buffet. I could not be happier with how this buffet turned out and the process was very easy since the buffet was originally in such good condition. Check out our before and after photos! We do custom pieces for customers and refinish multiple pieces daily!
