Chippy Buffet



My husband thinks I am a little crazy because I want to change my buffet again.  I just sold our china hutch and painted a new French Provincial buffet last month and now have painted another buffet!
Old buffet:

I found my new buffet on Craigslist.  I really wanted a buffet that was a little taller and chippy.  
Before:


It was a beautiful buffet but had some issues with the top and the sides.  
I mixed up some Miss Mustard Seed Milk paint in French Enamel Blue and went to town painting.  This buffet is really large and heavy so it took a good chunk of my morning to paint.  After it dried I got out my scraper and scraped away for the great chippiness.  To seal the paint I used my hemp oil/dark wax technique   I love it!












Box my father in law made for me out of old barn wood























This Buffet will be staying!
