Buffet Makeover

This pretty buffet has been covered up in the garage for a while now. I am so glad to get to this makeover. I love the lines and detail of the piece. Here is the before~
You can't really tell in the picture but the finish was pretty rough. I sanded down the top and used a deglosser for the drawers and doors. I didn't feel like I could sand evenly with all of the detail and curves.

I primed with spray primer and painted using Behr Ultra Premium Plus paint in Ivory Palace. I love this color but it did take 4 coats to cover. I accentuated the details with Ralph Lauren glaze in Black Velvet which actually has brown undertones. I finished it off with Minwax Wipe on Poly.
