A Modern Farmhouse Buffet

Robin from In Fine Feather Furniture gave this buffet a modern farmhouse look with Sunday Tea All-in-One Decor Paint, some new stain, and Hemp Oil!

After nearly a year of rescuing this buffet from the big blue demolition bin at a property foreclosure, I finally found the inspiration to give her the makeover she needed.

This was a very dark stained wood piece with a matching hutch. Huge, overpowering, and dated. I donated the hutch to a thrift store and kept the buffet. I knew the thick wood top needed to stay to showcase the solid construction of this piece.

I stripped and sanded the old finish off the top. Then used a blend of 2 waterbased stains to get the finish I envisioned. I used a light “Hops” brown then added 2 coats of a “Modern Grey” to give it depth and a more modern color.

I then sealed the top with 3 Coats of Country Chic Paint Hemp Oil. I love using all natural hemp oil. It is so easy to put on, dries matte and once cured (after about 30 days) it is very water resistant and about a medium level of protection.

I then moved onto the base. I used Country Chic all in one decor paint in the color Sunday Tea. It is a nice rich neutral that goes with both warm and cool tones.

Once painted I used one coat of hemp oil on the base just to give a little extra durability. Next I used a matte black spray paint to change the hardware from brass to black which I think really updated the look. I decided last minute it needed a little something more so I used Country Chic Antique wax in all the grooves, nooks and crannies then blended it out with natural wax. I hand painted the metal circular details that were previously brass with Country Chic paint in Licorice to match the matte black pulls.

I love this piece now and wish I had somewhere to put it in my home. However square footage is an issue for me so this piece is for sale. Hooing it’s new owners love it as much as I do.

I am a wife and working mom that makes work life balance a top priority. When I am not at work or busy with our family I love to spend time outdoors hiking, mountain biking and beach combing. I balance my love for nature with an artistic outlet I can do indoors. This is working in my garage work space updating vintage furniture with paint, stain, glazes, waxes, oils and anything else that intrigues me.
