Buffet and Hutch

I was out visiting one of my favorite little “antique’s and such” shops when I came across this great little buffet and hutch…I don’t know if it’s an actual antique or not…it’s very well made…even has the dovetail on the drawers…also, it has CC engraved on the back of it…I tried to Google that, but, couldn’t find anything out…..And I loved how dark the wood was, because, anyone who loves to work with chalk paint knows that the dark wood makes for a beautifully distressed piece…I was a little busy this week so it took a few days for me to finish up with it.  I painted with Annie Sloan Chalk paint in Duck Egg and Old White, distressed it, then waxed…I love the way she turned out so much that I’m having a hard time not keeping it for myself 🙂  But….well….I just can’t…even though I’m still trying to talk myself into it…lol…In the meantime, she is up for sale…$325

Dimensions are 67 1/2 in tall, 36 in wide, 16 in deep
















About The Old Cypress House

Mother-wife-friend-artist...I love to paint...I have always loved painting...I like to take something old and make it new again...with paint! Actually, I just like making stuff...DIY-that should be my initials! The Old Cypress House got started with a single plank of cypress wood given to me by my brother. I painted Tiger Eyes on it (LSU Tiger Eyes, to be exact...Geaux Tigers!). From that moment on, I couldn't do enough of them. I ventured into Fleur de Lis, Jazz guys...whatever anyone suggested. Then my husband helped tear down a cypress house that was built in 1889 and brought me home loads and loads of more wood, including the old cypress windows that were in the house...I could hardly contain my excitement! The possibilities are endless. This blog is going to showcase my work. It will mostly be on cypress...but, I'm sure I'll venture into other areas of art projects. I have so many ideas spinning around in my head. I hope you enjoy my work. If you see something you like or have an idea, please let me know...I'll be in my shop! "If you hear a voice inside of you say 'you cannot paint', by all means, paint...and that voice will be silenced" ~ Vincent Van Gogh View all posts by The Old Cypress House
