I picked up this buffet from Craigslist. I recently picked up another one with a mirror back splash, but until these I've never done one with this feature, I really like them.
Here it is before...
Fairly basic straight lines, so I decided I would antique it after painting to add a little depth, and interest.
Here it is after I painted it with our Cottage white...
I then used Minwax stain in Provincial to antique it. There's a million tutorial and how to's on how to do this, so I won't go into great detail. I basically brush the stain on with a foam brush in sections and then wipe off with a rag, being sure to go back and keep wiping as it keeps seeping out of the cracks.
By the way with mirrors I don't mask, I just prime, paint, and antique, and then go back spray with Windex or my all purpose cleaner, vinegar and water, and then scrape all the paint off with a razor blade. I just think it's much easier.
Here it is all finished at the Cottage...
This piece is currently for sale at the Cottage.
Thanks for stoppin'
