Server Voila!! c'est fini

Hello Friends!

 Have ya missed me? It seems like forever since my last post. Ive been quite the busy girl! The weather is finally warming up and now its enjoyable working in my office (garage) again. Ive been able to knock out some furniture projects that have been sitting collecting dust all winter. So you can probably expect a couple of before and after blogs post coming up. :)
 I was lucky enough to find this massive, sturdy, beautifully carved server/ buffet at a yard sale last summer for a steal!
 I knew right away it would be Fabulous white with dark wax and a special walnut stain on top.  I kinda went back and forth about adding some ASCP Paris Grey but in the end i chose to keep it just white. I used a Opps paint from Lowes instead of Using ASCP old white just because i wanted to use my paint sprayer since this is such a big piece and i was a lil pressed for time. Plus i knew re staining to top would take some time.

too shiny and too brown for my taste!

Im really not a fan of striping and staining furniture ~ its very time consuming but im finally getting the hang of it. And this buffet turned out pretty awesome if i do say so myself!
 Here is it with the final coat of paint applied and the top stained. All thats left now is to add the  Annie Sloan Dark Wax, finish spray painting the shiny brass hardware black, poly the top and then distress in all the right spots.

isn't she lovely!

Plenty of storage! A great solid piece of furniture. I love the way it turned out but i think im gonna take some sandpaper and distress those beautifully carved flowers a bit more so that they really POP!
Isn't she grand!

And so here it stays for now @ Time n Again Antiques waiting for the someone to take her home and love her as much as i do.

Have a productive fulfilling  Day ~ Everyday!!
