Gorgeous Custom Blend Buffet/Sideboard

I was wandering through Goodwill (like usual lol) when I came across this huge curio cabinet tucked away in the furniture section.  I knew if I took the top of the cabinet off, that the bottom would make a perfect buffet or fun tv console and add a statement to the new owners room.

I decided to use General Finishes’ “Linen” Milk Paint on this piece, which is super light and airy and exactly what I was looking for.

It’s amazing what a good coat of paint can do to an old piece of furniture!

To add a little more life to this old piece, instead of painting the top I choose to stain it with General Finishes’ “Java” Gel Stain.  This is my go-to stain in my work room!  It just seems to look absolutely gorgeous on just about anything.

It definitely added a rich finished look to this antique piece.

I then freshened the entire piece up by applying a coat of stain to the inside as well.

Keeping the original hardware added to the uniqueness and antiqueness of the cabinet.
