Sweet Cream Buffet

This sweet cream buffet comes from Susan and it just might be my favorite piece that she's ever painted.





Susan found this one at a yard sale. Just look how sad it looks in this before photo!




It had a few veneer issues that she repaired with wood filler. That ruled out staining the top, but Susan thought chalk paint was the perfect option here.



I just love the way she used a combination of old white and cream. The cream is a yummy, buttery color and you know how much I love yellow!






And don't you just love all the pretty details?




























Nicely done Susan. This one is a real beauty!
