I have been wanting to redo a piece of furniture for a while now but have been really intimidated. I decided to just go for it and I am glad I did! It has a hutch to go with it but I haven't started on that piece yet. When I do I will make sure to blog about it, as part two.
I first took off all the hardware and scrubbed the buffet clean with TSP cleaner and some rags.
Next I sanded it down and primed it with Kilz spray primer.
Once the primer dried I sprayed it with Krylon white (in a gloss finish). I sprayed a few coats, it look about three hours to fully dry. Once it dried I sanded a but more, sanded the edges extra hard to take off the finish and to give it an antiqued finish. I roughed up the areas that already had dents (I wanted to keep the history visible). I left the original hardware on the drawers but added new glass Anthropologie knobs on the doors.
This was honestly a TON easier than I thought it would be and very rewarding! Everyone was always saying that if they could do it than I could too. I honestly thought that they had no idea what they were talking about but it looks like they were right! I am excited to redo more furniture soon.
