Buffet Day

I am in San Diego today with my friends from CeCe Caldwell’s.  Hanging out at Debi Beard’s store “House Vintage”, in Solana Beach.  I will reentering the atmosphere of reality and momness tomorrow, but for now….it’s all about buffets.

I love a good Buffet.  Especially a really good breakfast buffet. The kind that has made to order Omelets and endless stacks of bacon.  This is the kind of buffet I get only when on vacation.  Usually Las Vegas, home of the biggest breakfast buffets I have ever seen.  Las Vegas probably is the home of the biggest furniture buffet assortment too.

The kind of buffet I am sharing today is not the bottomless plate, eat until you are exploding, maybe they actually lost money when I came in kind of buffet (maybe that is just Mark and I, gluttons at a good breakfast buffet, my once a year bacon splurge).  I am sharing some of my favorite buffets from Redoux.  (Note, I am cheating and counting side boards too…)Buffet Collage RedouxinteriorsStarting in no particular order of my favers.  It’s a buffet after all, you don’t have to do things in order!

#1 Changing table turned buffet.  It was a really nice Dark Mahogany color.  I layered CeCe Caldwell’s Seattle Mist and Vintage White, followed by a Grey Glaze to get this beautiful weathered finish.  Layered CeCe Caldwells Grey Buffet Redoux Interiors

#2 This went to the French Baker.  The top just needed a little TLC, the base painted in only one coat of CeCe Caldwell’s Vintage White.Side board in CeCe Caldwells Vintage White Redoux Interiors

#3 A roadside score.  It was sitting in someone’s driveway, I picked it up for very little cash.  Layers of CeCe’s Young Kansas Wheat, Omaha Ochre and Dark and Clear Wax for lovely aged look.Layered CeCe Caldwells Young Kansas Wheat and Omaha Ochre Redoux Interiors

#4 Beautiful Maple Buffet finished in one very thin coat CeCe’s Vintage White, a little aging wax, heavily distressed.Maple Buffe CeCe Caldwells Vintage White Redoux Interiors#5 (This may be my favorite).  Madame H.  Body is in CeCe’s Pittsburg Grey lightened with Dover White.  Door fronts and drawer are in California Gold, mixed with Dover White (this is a non pigmented paint which lightens colors without changing the essential color, love this product, great for a wash too).Small Cabinet CeCe Caldwells Pittsburg Grey, Dover White California Gold
