Custom Posh Red Buffet

Hi guys! Are you tired of seeing red furniture yet? I really hope not because I have a few more custom red pieces I will be sharing in the next few days.

I posted this buffet on my facebook page a few weeks ago and it was snagged by Angie in record time. Angie liked the red dresser I did and she wanted this buffet painted red. (click here to see all of my red pieces).

I used the same color combo as this dresser set.
 
I used homemade chalk paint (1 cup latex and 1/4 cup baking soda). The paint color I used is called Posh Red by Valspar and I used a glaze to darken it a little.
I added new hardware from Hobby Lobby, distressed along the edges and and sealed with Johnson's Paste Wax.
 
 
I have one more red piece to share with you next week and it's an old mission style rocking chair! Stay tuned.
