Suddenly, a message appeared. I was not alone. For Heather was there. Perfectly Flawed 13's Heather. Heather slipped me a picture, showing me the way out of this fortress.
She confided to me that a man had brought her this buffet. He had rescued it from a barn where it, too, had been exposed to the fury of Mother Nature. As Heather listened, he spoke of how this piece must have looked in it's glory days. He recalled that there were some decorative details missing and it bothered him that it had been so carelessly left out to rot. He asked simply that Heather "do her magic". Heather never said if the man resembled Jack Nicholson or not, but I'm assuming he did not.
So, Heather did work her magic. The buffet was in serious need of repair. It had a veneer-ial disease of some sort. The veneer that wasn't broken off already was chipped. The whole top was ruined so Heather had to rip it all off & put on a new one. (That a girl!) Her client loved stained wood so that was a no-brainer. Heather incorporated it choosing Kona by Rustoleum. The paint she used is Churchill Hotel Wheat which she followed up with dark brown glaze and a clear coat of Minwax polyurethane.
For the missing decorative wood carvings, Heather chose to replace them with metal art.
Her client loved it. This piece remains one of Heather's favorite makeovers.
Let's take another look at it...
Thanks so much Heather for sharing your fabulous furniture flip and for handing me the map to get out of the maze that is this winter. I'm forever indebted.
