Hello again from the long lost painter who can't seem to get her blog groove going. Or maybe it's just keep it going...
Regardless, I'm back today with another recent finish to show you. In addition to forgetting to blog I've also had a bad habit of forgetting to take photos of everything that I have completed. I have worked on several custom pieces and sent them on home with nary a photo. I've been finishing things to take down to NJ & Co. and forget to take photos. So, last week I tracked down one of my items and managed to take some really horrible photos that I'm going to show you today. Lucky you!
to go with her on this one and see if the folks who were seeking black furniture pieces come out to take this baby home. You rock Tracy!
This buffet is so solid and the storage in this piece is AMAZING! In addition to the dining room I can definitely see this piece scoring big time in the family room to house the games and DVD's The top was an easy refinish with some new stain and antique oil finish. I tried out Benjamin Moore's Advance Waterborne Interior Alkyd in Black on the body. I will tell you that I've had mixed results with Alkyd type paints in the past. Some don't level well, some don't cover well. I've never been asked to, but I would recommend this paint whole heartedly. It went on beautifully and I got great coverage with 2 coats. The down side of the paint is the dry time. It is recommended you wait at least 16 hours before gently sanding, wiping down and painting your 2nd coat. I'm thinking this is what I'm going to be using on my kitchen cabinets when I finally get the nerve (and energy) to paint them.
Deck the Halls!
