Blue French Buffet and The Peacock Room

Martha Leone

Peacock French3 by Martha Leone DesignPeacock French by Martha Leone DesignDuring the summer, I took my daughter and friends to the Freer Gallery in Washington, DC. We discovered The Peacock Room for the first time and fell in love with the blue walls. After that experience, I've painted several pieces a shade of that beautiful blue. This french buffet was my first piece. Process After lightly sanding it, I painted it two coats of a batch of homemade chalk paint using Behr Marquee paint. Then it was heavily sanded. While I love this shade of blue, I wanted this piece to have an aged and elegant feel so I applied dark walnut stain and wiped off most of it. After the stain was completely dry, I applied Minwax Wipe-On Poly with a staining pad.
