Hello! I’ve had this buffet for a few years now. I liked it, but after a while I got tired of it being so dark. I wanted something lighter. After much thought I decided on this fabulous, rich, buttery yellow, Buttercup Chalk Type Paint from the Vintiques line by Heirloom Traditions. I started with a layer of Chantilly Chalk Type Paint, a classic, bright white, then sanded lightly with 220 grit sandpaper and painted on a layer of Buttercup. This paint has great coverage. It only took one coat of each color.
To finish it off, I distressed and then sealed with Vintiques Satin Topcoat, a water based top coat that gives your painted finish long lasting durability & scrubility! This top coat is unique because it is specially formulated to be able to adhere to a waxed surface. This means you can still antique your piece with wax, if that’s the look you desire, but be able to give your painted furniture a durable finish. Low VOC’s, safe to use indoors & safe to use on baby furniture. Love it and the packaging is just adorable!
It’s available in 3 sheens: Matte, Satin and Gloss.
