A buffet to remember

I've always wanted a buffet with legs. So when I found this one at a Salvation Army, I knew I had to get it. They are not always easy to find or and are not always priced right. I have bought one before and sold it because I did not have a place for it. The top had a lot of damage to the veneer and lots of scratches

So I gave it a coat of a Annie Sloan's Florence. It's a little bright and not deep enough for my room. I'm going for more jewel tones

I got some Martha Stewart Coffee glaze from Home Depot for like $7 bucks. I brushed it on rather thickly, 

then I used a towel to rub it and and take some off

It's a messy process, but it deepened the color nicely. I will post some more pictures after I stage it. 


  1. Yeah, Florence is definitely a bright color! I had a paint class student who used it but softened it up with white and it had such a nice beachy color to it! I can't wait to try it! :) Anyhow, love to see how quickly you're moving in your dining room!!
