This one is for mom.
See this old buffet? Let me explain why it’s topless.
My mother had this piece with the china cabinet that sat on top for years. It was finally time to get rid of the top and just use the buffet as a server. But when the china cabinet came off, so did the top. She had already asked me to paint it for her so now it was a matter of replacing the top.
I have to admit I was slightly skeptical about using this for staining but if it didn’t turn out I’d either paint or find another piece of wood.
I should mention that I sanded the entire piece down to rough up the finish before priming with KILZ primer. Then as always, lightly sand down again once the primer is dry.
Alright… now I know you’ve seen this color a few times recently on my blog, but it was my mother’s choice. I used Heirloom White. (I didn’t have creative reign over this one). I think I’m hanging up the Heirloom White for a while after this project.
Aside from that, it really is a great color. In the pictures below you can see the addition of the wood and stainable trim.
Corners filled and sanded, then the surface was sanded down again with a fine grit sandpaper.
Stained with Minwax Walnut Gel stain, sanded then stained again.
After the top was stained I topped it with Minwax Poly. I then glazed all the painted wood. Below are the doors after glazing.
So what do you get when you put it all together?
One gorgeous coffee station!
Loads of storage too.
Time to enjoy a lonnnng espresso
