Step 1: From Wood to Chalk Paint Finish

So we cleaned the buffet and put 2 coats of chalk paint by Rustoleum, colour: chiffon cream

We added newer style handles.

Step 2: Putting on the Top

We ordered a top: 4 feet by about 30 inches that matches the counter top in the kitchen. We used Kijiji to locate bar chairs. We purchased 2 brackets to hold the back.
