Petite Buffet Makeover {French Linen}

Full speed into the week ahead and just really wanted to share this little buffet that I made over this past weekend.

When I picked this girl up, I fell immediately in love with the simplicity of the piece and the nice clean lines. Not to mention that it is only 4' long...I never find them this size!

But once I got home with my new treasure, it was easy to see that it had been through many repairs and refreshes in it's life...none of which appeared to have been executed with much care.

So we glued, clamped and scrapped away the damaged veneer.

I tossed the dated hardware and sought out something with more flair.

A couple coats of Annie Sloan French Linen with liberal sanding between coats and this little buffet was starting to look so darn cute.

Here are some photos of the finished piece. 

Love the new hardware, so fitting for this piece!

Oh and these little candles sticks are repurposed table legs; washed with graphite and dark wax.

Once again, thanks for stopping by, have a great week!
