Sophisticated Black Buffet {guest post}

This gorgeous buffet was created by Heidi from Lily Field Furniture with a bit of Liquorice! Read on to see how she did it.

When this buffet didn't sell right away I knew it would be a good one for me to customize with my own color/style choices. The doors were so badly damaged that I decided to just take them off and leave the sides exposed for storage. After filling the old hardware holes and fixing some damaged veneer she was all ready to be fixed up!

I decided to go sophisticated with a classy black for this piece. This was my first time trying out Country Chic Paint and I have to say I am seriously in love! I used the color Liquorice and am so happy with the way it turned out. It's hard sometimes to find a true deep black (especially with a chalk-based paint) and Country Chic Paint has nailed it with this color!

I've had this gorgeous Rifle Paper in my arsenal for awhile now and thought this was the perfect piece to use it on. Instead of modge podge like I would normally do I decided to make this less permanent. I covered the paper with contact paper and then used double sided tape to adhere it to the buffet. This is a nice option if you think you might want to change out the paper with seasons or if you are like me and just change your mind a lot! (My husband is totally nodding his head as he read that!)

Once the buffet was all painted I used Country Chic Paints Tough Coat to finish it off and add an extra layer of protection. I'm so happy with the way it turned out and can't wait to try out some of the other fun colors I have!
