White and Grey Distressed Buffet (fave projects repost)

Here’s another one of our favorite and most clicked projects on our blog. This piece is timeless and is still one of our favorite furniture makeovers to date! 
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!?

    LOVE this re-do! It looks like it was always that way. I also love your paint design on the wall behind. I’ve never seen anything like that! Ilene
