Dena was really wanting to add color to this piece and after searching for some inspiration on the internet (including our blog - Thanks so much Dena!) she threw caution to the wind and just went for it. As you can see this piece was sturdy but it had some veneer issues.
So, they removed the offending veneer. Then before they painted it, they applied some Kilz Primer.
After the entire piece was primed, they stood back and admired it in white. Did they stop there? No! Would I have stopped there? I don't know. It's at this point that I would have chickened out and grabbed a neutral color. Or at least I would have before I saw what comes next. What comes next is really good...
They applied Rustoleum's "Eden" in a satin finish.
They weren't finished yet. The final step was to apply a glaze to the buffet.
What a gorgeous choice that was.
Check it out now...
Stunning! I love how the dark glaze settles into the details and really makes the whole piece come together. Beautiful job!
Dena has since completed even more furniture and though she currently just does the flips for herself, she does admit to being hooked.
Thanks so much Dena & Mick for sharing your furniture flips. Keep 'em coming!
