Crocodile Buffet

July 15, 2016

I know I was taking a risk when deciding to do a crocodile stencil on top of this buffet/sideboard.  I'm not sure how many people would want this look, but I thought it would be really unique and stylish.  Sometimes you have to take a risk and just go for your idea, although it seems a little bit crazy:)   On this buffet I used the Artisan Enhancement crocodile stencil which I stenciled using their pearl plaster. I love that stuff! I applied it with a rubber spatula.  It took me a couple days to do this as I had to wait for each section to dry before placing the stencil down to stencil again.  Once it was all stenciled I got some 220 grit sandpaper and sanded it down to smooth it all out.  I then applied Annie Sloan dark wax (actually a mix of clear and dark) over top the stencil to give it more depth and age it.  I absolutely love how it turned out.  The rest of the buffet is painted in Coco and then sealed with clear and dark wax mix. Underneath the stencil I did paint with the chalk paint first.  I forgot to take a before photo but it was your typical walnut kind of wood. The hardware is original, I just cleaned it up with bar keepers to give it the original shine. You can read the blog on Chalk Paint and Wax for how to use those products.
