Buffet - Beautiful Again!

I'm baaaaack!  Sorry for the extended absence!  Busy days rolled into weeks.  Between school and getting things into the shop, I haven't had much time to blog.  I took a new piece into the shop today and thought I'd better share it with you before life takes over again!

So I found this buffet at a flea market a few months ago.

It was in bad shape!

Veneer was loose and missing.  The finish had water damage.  It needed some lovin'!

I stripped off damaged veneer and glued the loose veneer back on.
I stripped and refinished the top, too.

Then it got one coat of chalk paint in Canning Jar.
I topped it with a coat of clear wax and dark wax.
I added some appliques from Do It Yourself Chic to add character and cover some of the veneer imperfections.

Beautiful again!
