Painted French Buffet

Just one more day and it will be ~Happy 4th of July!!! We are full swing into our trip and celebrating Independence Day!!  I thought what better piece to share with you than something RED!!  I have shared this color HERE before on another painted French Buffet

This beautiful French buffet is one of the favorite pieces I painted.  I fell in love with it!! She wanted it only red but her husband wanted some kind of accent to draw out the details so we went with a light distressing and a little dirt!! Just gorgeous!!

Here she is before…


And here she is after, a painted French Buffet!! Beautiful Maison Blanche Vintage Cerise and dark brown wax with a little Le Dirt!
