Heidi from Lily Field Furniture is joining us again today to inspire you to tackle even the most dreaded makeovers as they can be the most worthwhile! Come see the full transformation of this gorgeous buffet in Liquorice!

This particular piece sat in my garage for 2 years while I worked up the courage to tackle it. It’s probably the piece that was in the worst way in my entire career of refinishing furniture!

You can see in the first picture that the legs were beyond broken. I had a friend cut off the legs and make a plaster cast of the originals. It was also an odd height so we opted to leave off some of the height. The top also had some severe water damage which required some help.

I didn’t even list this one for sale because I wasn’t sure it was going to be salvaged. After finally tackling the repairs needed I decided to use Country Chic Paint in Liquorice. It’s my all time favorite black and gives off such a timeless sophisticated look!

I used top coat to seal in the buffet and protect it for wear. Quite the difference isn’t it?

Hello! My name is Heidi and I am the face behind Lily Field Furniture. I spend my days being a wife and mom and my late nights in the garage painting away!
