"Vintage Is The New Modern" This Buffet from the Roaring 20's was completely refurbished inside and out. It features Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint in Antibes and Louis Blue, with touches of Precious Metals Premium Finish in Gold Leaf. The art work on the doors was done with a mix of Annie Sloan Chalk Paints and Luiqitex Fine Art Paints.

The piece was then gilded in just the right places using Annie Sloan's Gilding Wax in Gold. To make all these colors really pop, I sealed the piece in 2 luxurious coats of General Finishes Gel Top Coat.
