Buffet in Hollow Hill

Today I going to share a makeover of a buffet that needed a little tlc, There was scratches all over it and part of the handle was broken, but it was a great piece and super heavy and solid wood. This is what it looked like before!


I used one of Country Chic's paint newest fall colors called Hollow Hill on the piece. It is a dark green and just works perfectly for this buffet. 


With the all in one decor paint it takes just two coats of paint to get good coverage depending on the piece, since it was dark it needed the two. After you are done you don't have to seal this paint if you didn't want to. But I choose to seal it for extra protection since it is a buffet. 


So after it was done being painted I distressed this piece pretty heavily for a farmhouse look then finished it in natural wax. 


I tried to save the original knobs but one was missing and one of the pulls was broken so I changed two of the pulls and found matching knobs for doors and painted them all in liquid gold leaf. It really pops on this dark green piece, I love how this turned out.

Vintage Flour Sack Fabric & A Chair

we found this old chair at a long yardsale and its very 70's, 80ish chair and very orange but  This is how it started out...




Dirty, and orange colored wood with fabric that is so outdated it is faded.. So when a new store opened up near by I went to check it out and found a vintage flour sack that was already cut on one end and opened up.. 


I matched some of the blue color in the fabric that was faded to the country chic color bliss.


After that I lightly distressed around some of the edges to make it look like natural wear. And recovered the seat in the flour sack fabric.


And to make the seat a little more fluffy I used some foam for another chair seat I had but didn't have the chair anymore. I love how this chair turned out and love the vintage flour sack that would have probably say around or even got thrown away by someone!
