Vintage Pine Buffet Redo

So this week I have been working on a buffet or that's at least what I am calling it. I loved this piece the moment that I saw it. It was sturdy and add the great farmhouse style and feel to it, but it needed a little help. It was dirty and big gauges in the sides the top was already unfinished but had paint splatters on the top. So here how it looked when I started out




Now doesn't it have so much potential. So I cleaned it up and i tried to repair the best I could the spots on the side with wood filler, it is still somewhat noticeable but i think it now adds to some of the farmhouse charm and helps show the age of it. I also sanded down the top more and stained it but it didn't come out how I wanted it. So I did a white wash across the top and wiped it away and it came out looking like drift wood after the top was stained. It was perfect, so after all of that there was raised spots on the drawers and some on the doors I just left it and left some texture and worked great for when  I sanded it to distress it. So after all of that here is what it looks like now...



                     

isn't it beautiful now? The color used was Annie Sloan's Duck Egg Blue. I think it's a great color if your going for a farmhouse style or even if you want to take it to a beach house, it would great in so many different decors.








Of course had to add in a picture of the ironstone tureen that I scored at a thrift store for about $3.99 even though it doesn't have a lid I love it. And my little pumpkin made out of a dollar tree pumpkin with mod podged vintage dictionary pages. So what do Y'all think of the redo?

  2. You did such a beautiful job on this! I love the color--I have used Duck Egg blue many times but it always seems darker than that. Did you lighten it? It is just lovely!
