The Incredible Hulk Buffet

I've been itching to paint a piece in a nice green similar in shade to the incredible hulk.
I watched that show faithfully. (please don't judge me) I do a lot of black and cream (because its more neutral) so I was ready to dig into some color. Then along came this buffet.
Sorry, I didn't think to photograph it before the drawers were out.
I purchased it from a friend for $75 and it seemed the perfect piece to experiment with. I chose Martha Stewart's Bay Leaf as my green and spent an afternoon sanding, painting and waxing- LOVE the result. We took it down to the shop the next day- Here's the after...
A closer look...
Pretty close match to Mr. Incredible- I'd say. Well, it sold today (3 days later) for $250- I'm glad to see someone else appreciated this fabulous color. She fit perfectly in the space.
And now we'll need to redo it again! I'm completely out of merchandise right now so wish me luck this weekend as we try to stock up. Let me know what you think. Love, Kelly.


  1. I've got a few little things you can take down if you want, and I might paint tomorrow (or Thursday, depending on whether I can dig out of my current disorganized hole). Let me know.

  2. I want to win!

  8. The buffet looks amazing. What wax do you use and how do you use it?

  9. Groundhog:
    I use Briwax- which is a paste wax- for this I used clear and just used a soft cloth to rub on and then buff off.
