black and brown

Have you ever found a piece that you love the finish of what it was, but there is no way to restore that all over (at least I am not sure how to)
I came across this pretty little buffet and china cabinet.
It had some really pretty burled wood in some areas.  I decided to let that wood show through where it was pretty and paint up the rest.
I really love the combination of black and brown together I think it is really rich.
Here are a couple before and afters....

 I think the burled wood was so pretty on the doors, but it was so damaged in other places.  I was lucky both the doors survived the years!


  1. You're a genius! I don't know how you do what you do, but I always love the end result!

  2. Love what you've done with these pieces. I've been painting pieces black of late... we must be in a black phase. I like to sand and let wood edges come through. Will there be another sale near Mother's Day again.. not that I'm excited or looking forward to it much!

    Hugs, sherry
