beautiful buffet (NOW!)

BEFORE shots...

this lovely piece had great lines, was sturdy and I knew it would look so fresh once I put my touch on it!
one door was hanging by the bottom hinge (it is leaned again the left side, and the inside shelf is leaned on the right)










after repairing the door, cleaning it up and sanding a bit, I am ready to paint

a shot of the top











AFTER!






what do you think?  It sold within 2 days of putting it on the floor at the store!  I am sure it is well loved in it's new home!

It's lovely! Whoever bought it really lucked out. I'm your newest follower, I'm a new blogger too. I'd love if you'd stop by and maybe return the favor.

Donna,
This little table is so cute! The distressing looks great! I love your blog design~it's so pretty!

Can I ask how you got all that veneer off your mom's dresser? I've got a project coming up where I'm going to have to do a bit of that!

i love your new blog! Thanks for telling me about it. That table turned out fantastic! I'm not surprised at all that it sold so quickly :)

Donna said...

Kim, I used a plastic putty knife. Where a piece of veneer was already coming off, I just slid the putty knife under and pushed the remainder off. In the tougher spots, I used a metal one - thankfully there were not many 'tuff' spots...
Good luck with your project - hope you'll post pics!

thanks everyone for the nice comments!

Love it! Makes me want to paint the new, old piece I have in my dining room.
