Buffet Makeover with DIY Chalk Paint

Buffet makeover using DIY chalk paint - full recipe on the blog on how to make your own chalk paint for all your painting projects!
This is one of those projects that has been done for an entire year.. yes, a year, with out me blogging it. Sometimes I’m really bad at sharing projects that I do, but I get to blogging it eventually & that’s all that matters right? Well the backstory on this buffet is pretty simple. I wanted an interesting dresser for our master bedroom makeover last year & I came across this buffet at a local antique store for a great price. It needed some work,but my plan was to leave it natural despite all of it’s flaws for that makeover. Mr. LMB uses this buffet as his dresser & it also acts as our media stand. The buffet is a pretty perfect piece. In our last master bedroom makeover we left it natural & I really liked it…

To see more of our last master bedroom makeover before we started to neutralize for the move you can go {here}. The photo of the buffet doesn’t show the flaws on the buffet, but there were lots. Chipping wood, water marks, discoloration, & more. When we started our master bedroom make-under it was time for a fresh coat of paint for the piece. I used my DIY chalk paint recipe with Behr frost which covered the piece & all it’s flaws so well…

After I painted the buffet with my Homemade chalk paint, I used a sanding block to sand the edges & crevices to give it a warn & vintage look. To seal the piece I used annie sloan’s wax & voila I had a brand new piece of furniture!

  8. Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you? That’s right AUTOMATICALLY, just watch this 4minute video for more information at. Seo Plugin
