Pine Buffet & Hutch

I love furniture made out of pine! Pine has that rustic look that really complements a great painted finish. This piece is a great example of that. This pine buffet and hutch was custom made by someone on the east coast for my customer. The only thing missing on it for her was a distressed painted finish. After some time, this piece completely changed from regular to WOW! I took off the tongue & groove back boards along with the buffet top and both pieces were stripped and refinished in a dark brown stain with a satin top coat. The bottom of the buffet and hutch were refinished in a cream paint that was matched to a table and chairs she already had. I rubbed everything down, along with a light coat of glaze for that rustic/distressed look she was wanting. Everything was finished off with a satin top coat for protection. I wish I could describe the excitement she had on her face when she saw it. It was like a brand new piece to her and she was extremely happy. That for me is one of the best things about my job and trade, which is getting to see the excitement people have for their refinished or restored pieces. I hope this entry on my website gives you inspiration for furniture you have in your home. The damaged and old pieces can look new and the regular ones can WOW you again. Give me a call for a quote. I would love to talk with you.
