Traditional buffet

November 22, 2016

This buffet has been one of my favorite pieces to work on. I would consider it traditional, with a twist:) 

The top was badly marked with water rings so it needed to be sanded down to raw wood. I almost always put on a wood conditioner when I sand down. You can buy the wood conditioner here (afil link).  Below is a photo after all the sanding. On this piece I stained it with GF java gel stain. I think I did 2 coats. Once it was ready for the sealant, I applied the gel topcoat. It is made for the gel stains. I put on 4 coats of sealant. 

 Here it shows the wood before all the painting

 

 

The rest got painted with a mix of AS coco and french linen. I also applied a dark brown glaze over this. In the crevices it got some MM copper paint just for a little bit of bling. The legs were distressed a bit too. The hardware had turned black so they got a good scrubbing to get back to being shiny. I sealed it with GF topcoat in flat.
