Chalk Paint and a Vintage Buffet

October 4, 2012 by  
Filed under Chalk Painting, Chalk Painting Furniture

The great thing about what we do is giving new life to a piece from the past.  We bring it into our present with thoughts of those who might have enjoyed it and give it new life hoping that it will be here in our future.   We must save Vintage Pieces that are tucked away in dusty barns and dirty attics.

On one of our “junking” trips we bought this amazing buffet that I “just” had a feeling about.  I couldn’t walk away from it for some reason.

It rested in our paintng room for several weeks before we moved  her into our main room and decided it was time to tackle our biggest project.   I want you to come by our store and see this for yourself!!  My daughter Cassie is our genius talent on this piece and I’m sure it won’t be in our store long,  so if you have a need for an amazing, stunning buffet you must come by and see this it.

This is how it started out.

This piece of the past has great bones…

Here’s a great picture of it.  We are trying to decide if we are keeping the hardware…

Chalk Painting Vintage Furniture

Yes, we are keeping the original hardware.

Cassie began by repairing the top surface scratches with wood putty and lightly sanding it smooth.  Then she started with one coat of Chalk Paint.

Chalk Painting Vintage Furniture The bottom floor of the buffet was missing so we built a new one.  Now it’s beautiful inside.

Here’s a shot of the new inside before we paint it.

Chalk Paint and a Vintage Buffet

We painted it with 2 coats of Chalk Paint and 1 of Clear Wax.  Cassie distressed the buffet and it is beautiful.

This Vintage Buffet has truly taken on a new life.

Fish Foam + Purdy Brushes = Swag!

The Southern Bloggers Conference is being held at the Embassy Suites in Raleigh, NC, October 12-13, 2012.  If you already have your ticket, yeah!  If not you better buzz on over to the site and get yourself a ticket and a room!  There will be lots to learn and lots of SWAG! to take home with you.  Did I mention all the Amazing Bloggers you will meet.  I attended Haven Conference in Atlanta this year and I can tell you going to a Bloggers Conference can change your life.  Did I mention all the FUN! you’ll have.

We have great sponsors that are slipping goodies “SWAG!” into a big awesome bag for you to take home and fall in love with.  Here are two of the Sponsors for you to get a preview of!!   Please go to their site and use their products and help us thank them for their generosity and support of our Southern Bloggers Conference.

Fish Foam is an amazing cleaning product.  I came home from Haven Conference with a can in my Swag Bag.  My husband was with me at Haven and new I had been given lots of goodies and remembered the unique product Fish Foam.  He asked to use the Fish Foam to clean the windows in our car, of course you can honey…  He came back inside and said “That stuffs awesome, I can’t believe how good it cleans the windows.”  That’s when I knew it must be really good.

I contacted Fish Foam from their Facebook Page and Nathan wrote me an email.  My 2 daughters High School Chorus Programs were holding a Car Wash.  A match made in heaven,   Car Wash + Fish Foam = Happy Clean Windows.   Nathan mailed me several can of Fish Foam for the car wash and…..made a generous donation without being asked to our High School Chorus Program.    Thank you Nathan, & Fish Foam.

So please go to their site and order you some of this great window cleaning product here!

Here a Fish Foam Video.

They also have a window cleaning service that comes to your home and cleans your windows.   Fish Foam Cleaning

Here’s a couple of photos of our favorite Purdy brushes.  Can you tell the one on the right has painted a few things.
