Some friends of ours purchased a new home this year and they needed help finding some new furniture. First on the list was something for their kitchen that would hold their china and other nice dishes.
It was a great piece and in really good condition. All of the wood in their house is a gorgeous dark color so I know they were excited for something a little different but they were aprehensive about how it would turn out. I knew though, I knew! 🙂
Here it is in all of its glory – gorgeous! Both the hutch and the buffet were given several coats of paint, using Kyle’s paint sprayer, and then glazed with a black glaze using the technique of brushing on with a foam brush and wiping off with an old rag. It was fun showing them how it didn’t have to be perfect, it just had to be what you like.
Some spots don’t have a ton of glaze and some have a lot but it turned out exactly how I thought it would and probably even a little better than they expected! The hardware that is shown is all original to the piece. Kyle spray painted it all with several coats of Oil Rubbed Bronze and I love the contrast it gives to the buffet! It is amazing what looks ugly and what looks beautiful with some help from great spray paint.
Here is a look at the buffet part again. She was in good condition, just needed a little something-something to gussy her up!
And here is the after again. I am so pleased with it and so happy Becky & Kyle were willing to take the risk and go with my idea! It was fun to work with them and see them enjoy the before and after process as much as I do.
