This beautiful buffet was refurbished by Olivia from Rustic Owl Treasures with our limited edition color, Hollow Hill. Isn’t it gorgeous?!

Hey y’all, Today I am going to share a makeover of a buffet we found on a 10 mile long yard sale! It needed a little tlc, There was scratched all over it and part of the handle was broken, but it was a great piece and super heavy and solid wood. This is what it looked like before!

I chose to used one of Country Chic paint newest fall colors called Hollow Hill on the piece. It is a dark green and just works perfectly for this buffet.

With the all in one decor paint it takes just two coats of paint to get good coverage depending on the piece, since it was dark it needed the two. After you are done you don’t have to seal this paint if you didn’t want to. But i choose to seal it for extra protection since it is a buffet.

So after it was done being painted I distressed this piece pretty heavily for a farmhouse look then finished it in natural wax.

I tried to save the original knobs but one was missing and one of the pulls was broken so I changed two of the pulls and found matching knobs for doors and painted them all in liquid gold leaf. It really pops on this dark green piece, I love how this turned out.
