Beautiful Buffet – Before and Amazing After!

Are you ready for one of our favorite makeovers ever??  I found this buffet at a second hand store in October a few short months ago! 🙂  I had a hard time deciding exactly what I wanted to do with it. 
 Sell it? 
Keep it? 
What color?
The woodwork and the detail on this piece is so amazing, so it had to be perfect!  I FINALLY figured it out! I wanted white AND the details accented in grey!  It turned out to be a match made in Heaven!!
Here she is BEFORE:
AND… drum roll please…. 
Check out that detail! A-MA-ZING!
Let’s take a peek inside! 
Hello, gorgeous!
Perfect place for extra storage!

See the chevron wall tutorial here.

The greatest thing is, I bought this piece and did a complete makeover for less than $50!! I know, right?!
Mallory says this is her favorite makeover that I’ve done! 
What do you think? Is it your favorite? 
What do you think about the grey and white!?

    This is so pretty. What a great size too. I think we overpaid for the china hutch my husband brought home. But I’m excited to paint it out, add some hardware and personal touches.

    WOW this is absolutely gorgeous! I’m curious, did you use grey paint to give it the “distressed” look or did you sand it…or another technique?? I’m just finished my first refinishing project and am excited about my upcoming ideas!
