Staging / Home Decor
To be completely honest, this buffet was in really nice shape when I bought it. It’s large, curvy and comes with the Ethan Allen name. That alone assures me of its quality. The drawers are dovetail and clean inside with hardware that fits the piece perfectly.
This beautiful buffet was brought into my shop for the standard prep, which includes a sanding and cleaning prior to painting.
The buffet was hand painted in a Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint Cranberry bliss. Cranberry bliss is a gorgeous, rich and elegant color. I sanded in between coats as well as lightly sanded between coats of clear sealer for a smooth finish. Once the cranberry was complete I was able to create a custom mixed gold for an added elegance by mixing both gold and rustic gold hardware opulence.
The entire top of the buffet along with the square areas on the cabinet doors were finished with a subtle metallic gold stencil creating a tone on tone appearance. This simply means that the image can seem to fade in and out depending on how the light hits it.
The original hardware was cleaned and refreshed to gold, complementing the metallic gold stencil.
This solid wood, vintage, Ethan Allen buffet now exudes a sense of elegance. The rich cranberry color with the subtle metallic gold design compliment each other beautifully.
While taking photos I had an epic staging / photography FAIL. I was tending to one tripod and completely forgot about another, knocking one over and my light bulb shattered all over the floor. Eeek
I’ll be sharing this post at these fabulous link parties.
