Small Buffet in Creamy White

At the Flea Market on Friday I found this cut buffet and had to bring it home.  It is well built and pretty dinged up, but has so much potential. 
Before:



I mixed up home-made chalk paint in Garlic Glove by Benjamin Moore and got my brush out and started painting.  The day was very hot (100) and the paint dried so quickly.  After a few coats I distressed and then sealed it with dark wax/hemp oil.  It is now a creamy white. 




My new boots-swoon! 



Love the soft orange and dried roses
