Here it is! My recent craigslist find. OK, so I couldn’t help myself. I had to do just one more Kitchen Scale buffet. I chose to use this color again for several reasons. First, I had many inquiries on my craigslist ad for the last one and it sold really quickly, so clearly it’s a popular color. Second, it’s just so darn easy to work with. And third, I just knew this buffet would also be stunning in this color.
So, here it is. Vintage buffet no. 3
So very lovely.
Once again, this one had just the right amount of chippyness. You can see the detail in this picture of the leg. Also, I think this picture is a better representation of the actual color.
I chose to not paint the inside (as usual) because it’s just so putzy. I know there are furniture restorers out there that do gorgeous things with the insides of their pieces, like adding a fabric lining and so on, but that isn’t me. Plus, this isn’t an item that will sit around with its doors open for all the world to see.
This one is for sale on craigslist, you can see the ad here. Update: this one did not sell on craigslist, so I brought it up to the Round Barn. I think it will do better there! It’s so pretty in person, surely someone will fall in love with it.
Don’t worry, I promise not to use Kitchen Scale on the next one. Even I am growing a little bored with it.
This guy is up next. I have an idea percolating in the back of my mind, inspired by my painted books. Check back to see what I do with him!
