White Distressed Farmhouse Buffet

Monday, November 25, 2019

I seem to never have luck with buffets turning out the way I want them too, let alone selling, but for some reason I continue to paint them and hope for the best.  I wont give up!

This one surprisingly got a neutral makeover with some pretty white paint in the color Crinoline from Country Chic Paint!  I finished this piece off with some distressing and buffalo check wrapping paper on the inside of the cabinet doors and in the drawers for a classic farmhouse look!


(The paint used in this post was so kindly sent to me by the team over at Country Chic Paint, but all thoughts and opinions are 100% my own :))

I got this piece off of FB Marketplace as usual and it was pretty expensive compared to what I usually spend on flip furniture, but I needed it!

So, I bought it, and me and my AMAZING  husband carried this massive thing down to the basement so I could get started.  It't not snowing yet but I am not a fan of the cold, so I am officially set up down in the basement for the winter :)

It makes it a little difficult when I do bigger pieces like this, but we always seem to make it work, and my hubs does everything he can to make it super easy for me to complete my work :)

My original plan was to paint it white and stain the legs a different color. Wellllll my plans didn't work out and I got so frustrated with trying to get these legs to look right so I ended up jsut painting the whole thing white.

Yea, it's not how I wanted it to turn out, but I still think it turned out pretty :)


So I took the doors off, removed the hardware & cleaned up the piece and gave it a coat of primer. I also sprayed it with some shellac to hopefully prevent any bleed through that could happen in my white paint!

Then I gave the piece 4 coats of white paint.  I don't really like painting pieces white, especially with a brush, because it just takes so many coats.  But, white is so pretty so I guess it is worth it.

After that all dried, I gave it a light distressing on all of the details!  I sealed it up with CCP Clear coat as usual, added my paper to the cabinets an drawers, put the original hardware back on & i was done!

Such a simple makeover for such a large piece, but it turned out so pretty and I hope it goes to a good home :)

Here are some pretty shots of this beast of a buffet!
