Light Blue Distressed Farmhouse Buffet

Wednesday, July 31, 2019

Today I have a fun little makeover to share with you on this cute little buffet I found! This piece has been done for awhile, but I have had so many other pieces to share with ya'll that I haven't gotten to posting about it yet!  But, today is the day!


So I bought this buffet from my favorite people who always sell me furniture, and I knew as soon as I saw it that I wanted it! 

This piece took me foreverrrrr to decide what I wanted to do with it.  I was originally going to do a subtle two toned look with white and light beige BUT I found a different piece I wanted to do that with the same day.  You can check out my blog post on the Subtle Two Toned Tallboy Dresser here!

Finally I decided to go light blue.  I got this pretty blue color called Savannah Mist from a local Dixie Belle retailer when I was at home a month ago.  

I decided to mix this blue with a little bit of a dark grey color to give it more of a farmhouse dusty blue color!

So I cleaned the piece and got to painting.  I gave this bad boy about 3 coats of this paint and let it dry completely while I worked on the top.  For the top, I decided to stick with the dark wood look!  It had a few scratched and marks on it, but other than that it was in pretty good shape.

I just took some of my stain in the color Jacobean and wiped it over the top to freshen the color and blend in those scratches!  After the stain was completely dry I sealed it with Country Chic Paint's Toughcoat.  As per usual!

Now let's go back to the base of this pretty little buffet.  After the paint was dry I got to distressing.  I just took 120 grit sand paper and distressed the edges.  After I felt I had the right amount of distressing, I was done!

I love how this vintage buffet turned out even though it was such a simple makeover!  Sometimes all you need is a little paint to give something a whole new life! Let me know what you all think in the comments below! :)
