Vintage Buffet from Spiegel

This depression era buffet is handsome and lovely.  It had been handed down from grandmother to grandchild, who was retiring to Florida!



Refinished top, General Finishes Antique White, some light distressing and General Finishes flat and satin high performance top coats.  Simple, but elegant....







Thanks for stopping by!

  2. Beautiful job Robin, love the top! :) I have two cans of General Finishes paint and haven't used one yet. I am sooo slow to try new things. I do have a desk that I think I want to try the Lamp Black on though.

  3. This is Gorgeous!!! I'm going to have to get some of that Antique White! I'm in love with their top coats...to think that I ever wasted my time with that wipe-on poly stuff! :)

    1. I never tried 'wipe-on poly'. I've had good success with the Minwax polys on stained tops, but even found that poly to be fussy. Every brush stroke had to be perfectly even and the brush needed to be loaded with the poly evenly to avoid brush marks. I find the GF polys are not fussy at all. I've really enjoyed getting to know their products. Also, fwiw, the GF Antique White is the exact same color as ASCP Old White!

  4. This is so lovely. I just finished a dresser in GF Seagull and it is very similar. Posting tomorrow! BTW, your home is so lovely. I really enjoyed the post on your kitchen floor :)
