This teal! So so so pretty. And what an awesome mid-size buffet or server this one is. Its detail is beautiful with dentil trim and peaks and curves along the bottom skirt and legs. It is also large enough for tons of uses but small enough to tuck into a tighter area. Think bathroom vanity or linen cabinet among the many ways it could serve in your home. With its smoldering good looks, it will add great charm to any room.
I refinished it with a deep teal chalk paint then dry brushed black to give it a rich rustic finish using clear wax to blend and remove excess. Quite the hand finishing process. The top I sanded and stained a gorgeous cedar color. I added two black crystal knobs and painted the original drawer pulls in oil rubbed bronze. I am in awe of this one. I love when a piece surprises me. I had the design in my head and then playing it out was a mystery step by step as I had not yet used this stain color before, nor had I dry brushed black-only dark brown tones. This was the first time I have rustiqued something in black and I love the outcome. As each step unfolded, I stood back and dubiously scanned the results. Then I fell in love. I think it is unique and rich and cozy and stunning. Just my little ol' penny's worth of opinion. There is ample storage between the large drawer and the two shelves below in the cabinet space. Perfect for anywhere and ready to grace any space.
I staged it with two different settings for fun:
