Vintage Ebony Buffet

By Two Perfect Imperfections, Designer & CEO in HAMPTON, VA.

We knew when we found her that this buffet had seen better days. We replaced the top with a solid popular. Then it was sanded, painted a custom black, wet and dry distressed and sealed 3 coats of polyacrylic. Original hardware was cleaned and replaced. Drawers lined with french couture fabric. Her legs were also lightly painted black, distressed, then stained general finishes antique walnut and sealed with  3 coats polyurethane. Behind the doors we used a Sherwinn Williams enamel semi gloss paint in a custom mixed blue.

This is a beautiful piece with some imperfections that help show off her age and grace! We hope you enjoy seeing her!
