The Before – Vintage Unfinished Buffet Server
This oversized vintage buffet server was extremely yellow in its original finish. It was almost difficult to see past the yellowness of it. But the entire piece is solid wood, with all of the original hardware intact. Therefore it was well worth the trip to Brooklyn to pick it up, even if it was so long that it stuck out of the back of my truck.
The details on this vintage beast are truly amazing. It features dovetail drawers, as well as an abundance of drawers for storage.
The Process – Gray Painted Buffet
I have customers who love gray painted furniture and I’m glad because gray has become one of my favorite colors as well. This vintage buffet was claimed for custom in Slate by Kristi Kuehl Pure Home Paint. Slate is a dark gray with blue undertones. This color is amazing!
The entire painted buffet server was also distressed just enough to enhance all the details of the piece, and since the original finish was lighter than the paint color the distressing worked wonderfully.
The Hardware – Painting Vintage Hardware
We chose to keep the original hardware since it suits the piece perfectly. The hardware was cleaned of its original finish and painted silver with our silver hardware opulence. You can see my process for cleaning, prepping and painting hardware here.
The Drawers – Decoupaged Drawers
To add just an extra bit of wow factor, the drawers behind the center doors were given an added touch. Once opened the center drawers have been decoupaged with a vintage butterfly print.
