The Vintage Buffet Got a Redo

Good morning!
I have this vintage buffet that resides in my family room.. It always has seasonal vignettes on it and it has been painted 3 times since I have had it. I found it at an estate sale for around 25 dollars. First we painted it dark aqua..
on a side note..
My neighbor gave me a bunch of old trucks for the grandsons but that red pickup had to come in the house ! Love it!
Then after I painted the kitchen Rainwashed I used some of it to lighten up the piece.. The husband didn't like the lighter color I said how about dark red? Also see how there is no bottom knob on the left and the right knob isn't all the way screwed in? There is a drawer there that we have never been able to open.. So the knobs just wouldn't stay because we couldn't add the back part to keep them on..But my husband fixed that so now the bottom has 2 knobs that don't hang down! :)
It is like a barn door red not so maroon as the photos look ( probably the lighting) My daughter painted it for me on Monday and then dark waxed it. Love, love, love it! The paint is Rust-o-Leum chalk paint in Crimson with Annie Sloan Dark Wax..
I got new knobs at Hobby Lobby ..Look at them ..They are fabulous!
I need to pick a wall color and get to painting.. and if you see any dust bunnies ..look away ! LOL! This last photo is more representative of the barn red color.. Love the color!

How do you find the time to create such lovelies? I so enjoy seeing your chalkboards and needlework. I wish I not only had the time but the good eyes still. BEAUTIFUL displays.

I think you're having a great time being crafty with your daughter:). A beautiful color and I too would keep the truck. Kathleen in Az
