This and That Thursday!

This and That Thursday!

Do you love a nice buffet as much as we do? Buffets are so versatile they can be used as a storage space, a kitchen island, dresser, or you can use them in a foyer as a special statement piece!

Here are a few examples of buffets our paintriots have painted and we hope you are inspired to paint one for your own home.

Wild Dandelion

Wild Dandelion painted an 150 year old buffet finished in Cannonball with gold accents and the original brass hardware was restored back to it’s beautiful original gold luster.  The top is finished with hard coat for durability and beauty.

Another beautiful buffet was painted by Wild Dandelion using Tarnished Platter from the American Home Collection, and black glaze was applied for depth and interest, it was finished with top coat.  The buffet top was stained with black and brown glaze mixed together with top coat creating a beautiful rich espresso color and hard coat was used to finish the buffet top.  Lovely!

An identical buffet was painted by Mainely Vintage, Kennebunk, MA, using AHC’s Topiary and clear wax mixed with Home Plate was used over top of Topiary to create a white washed look resembling a soft sage.  Beautifully painted and elegant!

We love both of these identical buffets and you can see how paint and color can be used to create the perfect piece to match your home and decor!

Larkspur Interiors used American Paint Company’s Uncle Sam, Nana’s Cupboard and Surfboard to paint this charmer and Top Coat was used for her finish, creating a fun, full of life buffet that would be perfect in a kitchen, bedroom or used for storage. It’s a wonderful accent piece with so many possibilities!
