When we found this Antique buffet, we knew it was the perfect piece for our Hamper Transformation. Before any painting was done, I enlisted the help of my carpenter who customized the drawers and doors to accomodate built in hampers. We then painted the outer body of the buffet in General Finishes Lamp Black. A layering of paints were used to achieve the look on the drawer and door areas. New cup pulls were added to finish off this one of a kind piece.
