Looking to add some rustic beauty to your home? Come see this stunning buffet by Maria from Countryside Heirlooms in Pebble Beach and Vanilla Frosting!
Who would've thunk? I don't know about fellow diy'ers but we absolutely love repurposing, refinishing and updating large vintage pieces. There's something very special about saving old, discarded buffets! Mostly every discarded buffet we've come across needed minimal work, were missing a bottom rung, scratched or just needed a great modern makeover.
The one thing that has remained constant is that it seems as though that most every piece we rescued was discarded because it was hard to decorate a home with such a large, obtrusive piece of furniture that served little purpose. I'm here to tell you that with a little imagination these pieces can and do become statement pieces in any home once refinished! As an example, we added ivy green ceramic knobs which can easily be interchangeable depending on our home décor colors but we've used these before and we love that subtle pop the decorative knobs create for decorating: Great knobs purchased from Hobby Lobby!
Voila...instant perfection with just a little color & Distressing :-)
I’m Maria Roberts — mother, wife, caregiver and a foster parent. I began restoring furniture in 2013 and I love painting & restoring furniture! Countryside Heirlooms was established by my wonderful husband who wanted to provide an outlet for my passion for painting. Tom founded Countryside Heirlooms to help motivate me to keep moving while I recuperated after major back surgery. Painting furniture has & continues to be my escape from the many responsibilities going on in my life as I’m sure many of you can relate. In this journey, I’ll share our experiences in selecting great furniture pieces and the not so great pieces, restorations & transformations. As a bonus…if you love before and after pictures of restored furniture than this blog is for you!
