Graphite Drexel Buffet UPdate

I painted this lovely Drexel buffet with Graphite {a favorite of mine these days}, distressed it a bit and topped it with a dark and clear wax blend. I thought the original hardware was dreadful when I started, but when I held it up against the dark graphite it was absolutely stunning. I love the contrast of the brass hardware now and the added detail of the brass feet.

This buffet looks so modern and fresh.

 Here is the buffet mid-makeover.

Here is the buffet pre-makeover.

 With temperatures in the low 80s and plenty of sunshine this weekend, I refused to work in the windowless garage and instead setup shop in the driveway. And what a brilliant idea that was:)

Enjoy the week!
