Client Project: Dramatic Buffet in Chalk Paint

When choosing larger furniture pieces for your home, it is important to remember that paint can go a long way. Bloom. was recently approached by a client who had found the perfect statement piece for her new home. She loved the shape and size of this gorgeous, curved buffet and thought it would fit nicely into her family room. She was not however, in love with the cherry finish. She wanted a dramatic, elegant finish and after collaborating with Bloom. she decided on a deep, charcoal chalk paint and dark wax with light distressing. Let's take a look at the Befores:

The piece was thoroughly cleaned and prepped for spraying. This was Bloom's first time spraying with chalk paint and we choose to work with Annie Sloan Chalk Paint. This paint is amazing and offers a gorgeous, rich tone when paired with wax. After spraying the chalk paint with an HVLP sprayer, the piece was wet-distressed and finished with two coats of a dark wax, also by Annie Sloan. In order to accentuate the subtle, aged look of the piece, the hardware was left untouched. We think the end result is nothing short of dramatic elegance.
