I'd been looking for a buffet for weeks when I found this little girls dresser for $79. It was exactly the dimensions I was looking for and had a good body. I was really hoping for a different style buffet, but I couldn't find any that were the right dimensions, and even used, I couldn't find a real buffet in my price range. So this worked.
For the re-do, I was limited to painting this piece. It is not solid wood. I used three Annie Sloan paints. French Linen for the body. Old Ochre for the drawers. Old White for the trim. I mixed French Linen and Old White to get the light grey I used to trim the top.
I just did a clear wax and decided not to do any distressing since the piece is not actually wood. I didn't want the compressed board to show through. I also have not gotten the hang of dark waxes, so I opted for a more "clean" style.
I'm still open to replacing the hardware. Hardware is expensive and I don't mind what's on there right now.
