Regal Buffet Makeover


Heidi from Lily Field Furniture used Liquorice to give this leggy buffet a clean, classic look!

Hello Friends! I’m thrilled to show you this before and after today! A sweet friend received this leggy buffet recently and asked me to update it for her.

I think these style of pieces are my favorite to refinish and I tend to love them in black! There is something about the square shape, dark wood that I personally think looks so sophisticated in black! For this particular piece we went with Liquorice for the color.

After lightly sanding down the whole piece with 220 grit paper I painted with 1 coat of Liquorice. I lightly distressing the detailing with a sanding sponge and then I used Top Coat for a protective finish.

What do you think? I love how the black brings out the details on the buffet and gives it a regal look!

  1. For the most part I love the look of your licorice painted pieces but would like to see the finished tops. Did you paint any little details or is it a flat black finish ?

  2. How do you get such a smooth beautiful finish when painting with chalk? It seems my pieces and most I’ve seen refinished in chalk paint have more of a streaky look to the paint with many brush strokes. Do you have a tutorial anywhere I could watch?

    1. Hi Jodi,

      That’s a great question! Brush strokes can be irritating so we have a few tips to help reduce them. Having a good, synthetic bristle brush is important! Check out this tutorial to learn more about how to achieve a smooth finish without sanding. We also have a new product in our line, the painting sponge that is perfect for applying nice thin coats without any streaks. You can see it in action in this tutorial.

      Happy painting!
