I so have enjoyed working on this beautiful buffet!  The character on it is so charming and unique, it’s one of the most beautiful pieces I have ever seen or refinished!  I am going to share with you a few videos from this makeover…

Here is a quick video on how to clean hardware from old furniture!

This buffet was painted in General Finishes “Lamp Black.”  I also knew I wanted to leave the legs of the piece wood for a two toned look.  I thought the combo of dark wood and black on this piece would bring out it’s vintage charm like no other!  I didn’t think it was necessary to sand down the legs to it’s raw wood, because the color I chose was very similar to the original wood color.  I just wanted to freshen it up a bit, give it a little more richness to the color.  For a job like this, I love General Finishes water based stain.  I used the color “Expresso“. Take a peek at this video!

I sealed the stain with General Finishes High Performance Top Coat in Satin.  I would say the finished product is absolutely perfect!!!  I’m in love!
