I've just finished this large two piece solid pine buffet and hutch, and I absolutely love it!
It is a bit of a departure from my normal pastel retro cute style, but I was inspired to do this in a more classic Hamptons style after our recent trip to the NSW South Coast and Southern Highlands - Bowral in particular has some stunning shops and a fantastic antiques emporium called Dirty Jane's.
Here's how it started out...
I gave it three coats of Graphite Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, and the inside of hutch got five coats of Pure White. I've sealed it all over with clear wax. In another departure from my usual finishing techniques I didn't distress this piece - well I did a tiny little bit on the white but none at all on the black. I thought that the combination of the colour and the shape of this piece made quite a statement and any more going on would have just been too much. Plus the Hamptons look I was going for is classic and understated, not OTT!
This piece is available for sale, $650. It measures 1100mm wide x 550mm deep x 2000mm high.
Pickup is from Lake Cathie NSW 2445.
