Inspired By Nature Buffet


Well Hello My Blog Friends!

Are you enjoying this wonderful fall weather? I just love when the seasons start to change….a big plus to living here in the Northwest.

Today I want to share this b buffet that I just finished.

Here’s what it looked like when I found it. Basically in great shape, but in need of a brand new look…We drug it out of a barn yard ssale a couple weeks ago.

I wasn’t exactly sure what direction I wanted to go with it…BUT THEN, it came to me.


I gave it a wash with ASCP in Old White. I love the way the wood grain comes through the wash technique.

I kept the great wood knobs and painted them with Graphite.

I also added some fun nature inspired hand-painted details.

I picture this piece in a living space below a flat screen television. I staged it accordingly and added a shaker and a couple of martini glasses….

I love the way it turned out and it’s one of those pieces that I was tempted to keep for myself..

But it didn’t….it's in the store and waiting for someone to come along that “just has to have it”….



I spent a couple of hours rearranging the space and giving it a fesh new look.

Oh how I love this time of year….


I’m so glad you stopped in today…..

I know we are all so busy, BUT if your time is limited, and you want to get the MOST inspiration in one place, make sure to go to Kim's Wow Us Wednesday at Savvy Southern Style. There are some amazingly createive and talented women out there people! I'm linking this project up there today.
