Homemade Chalk Paint ~Gray & Blue Buffet~

The weather has been incredibly beautiful here in BC.
I finished my buffet yesterday and was planning to take pictures of it today.
I woke up this moring and it was cloudy, making inside the house a bit dark....

so I dragged the buffet to the entrance and
opened the door to get a little bit of sun light :)

( That's why you see the door in the mirror)

Anyway, it started like this.
I thought about "paint or not to paint" for a while
because as you can see, it was quite nice, um, from far.
But up close, she showed her age and was too orange for me
and also I have another buffet which I decided not to paint
so I decided to paint this one.....(and that's my excuse to paint)

She's got the cutest hardwares ever!
I left them as is, just gave them a good cleaning, I think it goes well with the painted buffet.
I also painted white lines on the front.

All the furniture I paint I whip up my homemade chalk paint.
I've been making it for a while and I found out that if you add more unsanded grout to the paint and dilute it with more water,
the quality of the paint becomes more chalky, which I love :)

Love the voluptuous legs...

I added music sheets inside for a whimsical feel :)

Glued it with Mod Podge and sealed it with it as well.

I'm happy with the way she turned out :)

I'm currently working on a French chair, but the sewing machine needle broke yesterday and the machine is acting up, hope I can make it work and finish the chair soon.
Take care everyone:)
