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!

I love the new look of the piece & it really helped to brighten up the room & give the space a whole new look. I will be back later on how we use this piece as a dresser and media stand.
