Buffet for Wedding

My daughter Megan and I have been meeting one day a month to work on wedding stuff.  Yesterday we finally got the buffet painted.   We used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint, Duck Egg Blue for the main color.  I think it turned out really cute!  I always forget to take a picture of the original state before we start!  But I did get a few after we had taken off the hardware and the drawer front, so you can get an idea of what we started with. We will be using this piece for the dessert buffet which will hold multiple cakes on different stands.
When we got this, it had been used in a restaurant and all the doors and drawers were nailed shut and it was a sticky mess!  But we got it for a good price and saw the potential!

We finished right before it got dark!

This was the first piece we did back in October.  We picked this piece up at a garage sale, cheap!  But it needed a lot of work!  I forgot to take a picture of the before, but believe me it was falling apart.  But we did our magic and look how cute it is! 

This will be the sign in table.  We are going to have old postcards on the table for them to write on and then they will drop them in an old mail box.  We donated this piece to my little grand-daughter, Everleigh.  We will have to get it back the weekend of the wedding, but we decided it would be a nice addition to her room.

It came with a mirrow, but it had a crack so we left if off.  We are contemplating what if anything we will use with it.
