Stunning French buffet

Good morning! I hope you are surviving Sydney's heat if you are local. We don't have aircon and I'm finding it hard to work. Hot hot hot... but hey it could be worse :) I always think of guys who are roofers on days like these.

Here's a recent piece I painted- beautiful French cupboard/ /small sideboard. I spent days stripping the old paint. It had been painted in latex paint with no sanding or primer.  Most of the paint just pulled off in long strips. I don't usually buy previously painted pieces because of the extra work involved but the shape of this vintage piece was too hard to resist.

I painted it all in a custom mix of ASCP: - muted pale grey with white trim. I then waxed and used an antique glaze to add patina. I absolutely love this piece. The photos don't really do it justice. Happy to arrange a viewing if you are interested.

  1. It is not hot here, but in the 35-45 degrees temps. Lovely French buffet and sure it will be snatched up.
