Finally I'm sharing my buffet!! Only took a while right?
I spotted this Ikea beauty on a local Facebook page and quickly offered all my money!!! Sorry for the blurry pic - we wont discuss my awful cellphone!
I had planned to wait a while before painting but inspiration struck and I couldn't stop myself!
I wanted a modern piece that still incorporated my favourite white but it also needed to fit in with the beachy look.
I knew I was going to use it to house the TV and decoder so we removed the 3 small drawers and Sean removed the drawer runners and built a shelf.
I primed the entire piece before painting then painted two coats after the primer. It took a few coats here and there before I was happy with the final look
I put the original hardware back on...
And distressed the edges ever so slightly...
Then a coat of polish and she was ready to go.
We decided to use her in the living room as a hold all and for the tv.
I am so happy with the end result and still cant believe how well the makeover went. I was fully expecting to have to repaint the whole thing white.
A before and after, just for fun!
Hope you all like it as much as I do, it perfectly matches my striped blanket box too
