I didn't leave Newberg that day with any chairs, but I didn't leave empty handed, either.
This lovely mini buffet came home with us. It was in good shape, but just needed an update.
I painted her body a soft gray. The top drawer and the doors got painted a pretty Tiffany blue/green. Then I dry brushed over everything with a wheat color, distressed the living day lights out of it, an finished it all off with a coat of dark wax and a good buffing.
I used some vintage copper knobs I purchased last year off of etsy. They looked pretty scary before spending 15 hours in a bath of vinegar and meeting the business end of a green scrubby pad.
They do make fore pretty jewelery, don't they?
She will be going with me to my first show here in Oregon. It seems appropriate that my first Oregon show should be in my new home town, and so it is. I will be a vender on Saturday at Artisans in the Grove here in Forest Grove. If you are in the area I hope you can join me. I'm working on a few other pieces of furniture, and some fun decor items to take with me as well.
The Mini Buffet is for sale. For more information see my portfolio page.
I will be sharing at
