Flip Down Buffet

I was at the Flea Market looking for great deals when I came upon this buffet and I bought it.  It is very large and heavy and had great bones.

Here is the before picture--Not bad, but I had another look for the buffet in my head.

 The wood is actually in worse condition then it looks in these photos
 Flipped down top

I mixed up some home made chalk paint in Chinchilla Blue by Benjamin Moore--this is a very light beachy blue grey color and I love it. I distressed and waxed the buffet and called it done!
The top drawers have dividers and a felt bottom and both can be removed to just have a basic drawer.

Folded down top

I love this old angel!

Linking up with:


  1. What a gorgeous and unique piece--lovely with its new coat of color! Thanks for linking up!

  2. Love the color you chose for your unique buffet! It turned out very nicely.

  3. Wow, it's fabulous. I love the color, the drawers, and that flip down top. Good find. Hope you see you at Mes Amis in April...with no rain. I hurt my back in September, so couldn't make it then. Happy New Year.
