Remember these guys?
They are solid wood but "eh"
sort of orange in color
Creamy white with a grey wash
The orange, however, did NOT want to leave...
it bled through...and bled through...and bled through
It bled through FOUR coats of primer
on the china cabinet...
I know when I'm beat...
Buh-bye dreams of white...
Hello, AHaH's Graphite!
Not to be confused with ASCP's Graphite color...
this version of Graphite is much more brown than grey
a perfectly lovely greige!
I used a creamy white glaze to knock back the brown a bit
and I'm thrilled with the outcome
Light distressing shows off the white beneath
I kept the interior white, but glazed it to disguise any bleed through issues
The buffet, thankfully, had minimal bleed through issues...
and I was able to go with the creamy white
I opted for a warm antique glaze instead of grey
so it would coordinate nicely with the china hutch
I've had these mirrors for awhile...the dresser they went with sold right away,
before I had time to complete the mirrors
Wouldn't this buffet be fabulous re-purposed as a double sink with the mirrors over each side?
Or what about a changing table...
Love that there are so many options!
