It has been a very long time since our last post.
A trip to the seaside was in order.
But now that we are back, Town and Prairie is busy with more laborious summer plans.
Here is our most current make-over.
This little 1940's buffet has been remade into a two-toned distressed wonder.
Here's her before:
She weas badly scratched, had shelves that weren't period original,
and much of the decorative molding had been broken off.
She needed some heavy sanding, some wood filler, and
some decorative repair work...(this sculptural work was done with a wood epoxy compound.)
...and here she is again today...
...totally refreshed, while still maintaining her charm.
I used Valspar paint with primer in teal for the body of the buffet.
For the drawers, I used Ben Moore primer and then Ben Moore paint in White Chocolate.
It is a very beautiful vintage white.
I then used Valspar antiquing glaze in Mocha over the entire piece to
bring back a finish that would add some age and character.
I just love these turned legs up front!
