This piece had my heart from the beginning. I love little mini buffets like this, maybe because the options are really endless for the design and function. Every time I score one of these babies… I always seem to paint it right away, because I just cant wait! I met the sweetest couple today that came over to buy a dresser. I was telling them about how weird and silly it is that I get so attached to the pieces I work on. I really do. I put a lot of thought into the detail and design and I love meeting people that get that. It feels nice sending my creations to their new homes where it will be appreciated and loved. Each piece is a piece of time that has a long story of places they have lived. Even though they are only with me for a short time, I would like to think that I am fixing and restoring and maybe adding a little beauty before I send them on to another home.
This one had a number for repairs that needed to be done. I drove 2 hours round trip to pick her up AND I paid to much for the condition…but I have no regrets. With certain styles, its worth it and I would do it again in a heartbeat. I chose General Finishes Milk Paint in Antique White, beautiful Anthropologie knobs and Spoonflower paper. I actually did a very subtle hint of gold on the legs too!
Here she is….
This was so much fun to work on. The details really do make the piece. The Anthro knobs and beautiful Spoonflower paper (artist:@ivieclothco) match so well. This paper is a perfect blend of fresh and modern and still subtle, I just love it.
I have another really pretty empire buffet to work on (hopefully this week). My studio is a horrible mess and I work best when its clean and organized, but yet I am very messy when I work. You can imagine my struggle… its so very real. 😉
Hope you have a great week!
