The Angus Buffet - Custom Refinish Before & After

Before Remember this beautiful hu-mong-ous buffet! It was painted a gray / green (a matched custom color) and lightly glazed in a black to bring out the details. This one never made it in our home for pictures. It went from the spray booth and then right to its new home.
After The contrast against the white better displays the beautiful color. Our client will be choosing hardware to complete the makeover.
Each drawer is nicely outlined in a wood frame.
This dresser will serve as a buffet in a dining area. I like the size of the the five smaller drawers on top and will serve as great organizers for flatware and napkin holders. We hope B and J Angus enjoy their new buffet!


The fall weather out here is beautiful. My favorite time of year!While I was snapping pictures of the buffet I snapped a picture of our beautiful blue sky just about the trees. The nights are starting to cool off and the days feel warm instead of hot. Perfect! Love love love it!

We are preparing for our next segment on Studio 5 this Tuesday. Thanks to everyone for all of your encouragement and support.

I love that color! It does look very fresh and pretty!! The structure of the hutch is great in itself but you really made this piece standout!

I love the color! It's so soft and pretty. It actually looks very similar, but just a little bit lighter, than the color we just did on a hutch. Great job. Are you going to post it again with the knobs?

The buffet looks great. I love the color and it is nice having the smaller drawers on top like you mentioned for flatware, napkins, etc. It would be fun to see another photo once the hardware is chosen.

that is lovely, great colour! I have a large sideboard waiting in my to-do pile, and it is a keeper, yay! (that just means it takes me longer to get around to painting it though, sadly!)
