APC’s Sackcloth Buffet (and a cute story!)

One day a couple of weeks ago, a very nice couple visited the shop and proceeded to buy a number of pieces of furniture – table and chairs, desk and chair, end table. The husband was very supportive of all her purchases but he specifically was looking for a tv cabinet!

I had bought a nice buffet just that weekend and based on the description of what they needed for the television I told them about it and sketched it for them.  Called my hubby for dimensions and described what I had in mind for the paint and they were interested!

Enter rainy weather and a slight delay finishing it completely but they loved the picture when next they were in just a couple of days later to pickup the furniture.  So much so that she paid for it on the spot!  Never had that happen before!!

No before picture, but it had previously been painted and antiqued in a style reminiscent of the 60’s – yellowed white, not pretty antiquing.

After  (and SOLD):

Painted in Sackcloth and lots of dark wax used

I really hadn’t planned on the faux grain look but it garnered lots of compliments while in the shop awaiting pickup.

Yep, loving APC’s Sackcloth!!!
