This is a post about the painted buffet. I brought this buffet with me when I moved from Texas.
It was originally black. But I wanted a different look. So I went to Lowes and looked at paint samples.
After some deliberation, I ended up buying the paint called Valspar Crushed Oregano.
This is the newly painted buffet with my two navy lamps on it. I love these lamps, as I love combining the colors blue and green together.
To me blue and green represents nature and the sky.
I wanted the two wicker chairs on the same wall. But only one fit with the buffet along the same wall.
My Apartment Living Room:
You can plan a layout for your furniture when you’re moving, but that’s not always enough. It’s hard to judge what things will look like once they’re in place.
You might forget where the electrical outlets are when you measure the room. Thus you will have to place your lighting within a certain distance of those outlets.
You kind of have to get in the rooms first, add the furniture, and see if it works. But that’s half the fun of moving!
I picked up a couple of those Valspar color samples in eight ounces, and used both of them to paint the dresser.
The Knobs On The Buffet:
The knobs are new on the buffet’s drawers. I bought them from from Hobby Lobby. Don’t you love the clear knobs? They remind me of vintage knobs I saw in homes when I was a child.
I plan to sort through the closets (which are not in the least organized). And the plan is to bring all my craft supplies in here to store in the buffet.
When I want to craft or DIY something, I can just take my supplies to the dining table and work on it.
The $10 Dining Table:
I’ve painted the $10 dining table too. I just love that sweet table. And what a steal for $10!
But I have a little work to do in the dining room first. I’ll show you that tomorrow.
