Goal Update

Here's the first piece I tackled this week.A $25 buffet I picked up this weekend at a garage sale. The plan was to use a gray oops paint from home depot. After sanding the top- there were big scratches- I decided to do a two tone with lots of distressing- I just love when a piece speaks to me and tells me it wants. Here's the finished product...
I had every intention of staging this beautifully for you- but it is a beast! It was all I could do to move it with my daughter inside the front door. Here's another look...
I used minwax ebony stain on the whole piece and then Clorox wipes to remove the excess. The alcohol in the wipes takes off most of the stain and just leaves a nice finish.
I painted inside the bottom cupboards- but not inside the drawers. I'm heading outside to paint up a few more pieces- Hopefully I'll share a few on Friday. Let me know what you think. Love, Kelly.


  1. Love it!!! I did the same thing with our coffee table used the same ebony stain on top and white on the bottom, please feel to check it out on my blog.

  2. I really like this! Great color choices.......

  3. I've been wanting to paint a piece like this for a long time. I love the black and white. You do such a beautiful job!
