Hello dearest friends! I have been so excited to share this vintage buffet makeover from Jami Ray Vintage. Jami is a retailer for Weatherwood and she has been busting out Weatherwood projects like a total rock star. Here's how you can get this look:
- Weatherwood Stains' Reclamation Stain
- Clear (Top) & White Wax (Base) - Fairy Chalk Mother
- Fairy Chalk Mother Paint- Windy Day
- If you're refinishing a piece: [Belt Sander & Hand sander, Sandpaper] and/or [Stripper, Scraper]
1.] SAND: If you're starting with an old piece, like Jami's, she'll walk you through how to know whether you should strip or sand the piece. You'll also see how to get all that old hideous paint off. She chose to use a belt sander with 80 grit sandpaper for the top and her husband works it like a pro. Then they used a palm sander for the base and drawers.
2.] PAINT: For the finish she chose Fairy Chalk Mother's Windy Day one-step paint. She chose a distressed finish and roughed up the edges with sandpaper.
3.] STAIN: She stains the top with Weatherwood's Reclamation stain, turning the cherry wood into a beautiful old-looking finish. Just apply the stain and allow it to dry naturally.
4.] FINISH: For the base Jami applied white wax to lighten up the piece. For the top, she sealed it with a clear wax.
I know Jami made it look easy, showing even the worst beginnings can turn out beautifully with a little elbow grease. I think the size and stature of this mini buffet make it especially charming. I like that it would made a special little bench. I hope you'll pop over and show Jami some love! You can find her using the below links!
