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.
24 hours later…and this new buffet was ready for it’s new home!
On to our next project!
