Boxwood Buffet: Quite the Transformation

 I was interested in this piece when I saw it posted on Craigslist, but I wasn't 100% sold for some reason. I didn't know why, but I was uncertain and thought it best to swing by and see it in person. I figured I could be convinced. When I went to see it, I was even less sure. I thought it was kinda ugly to be honest. The owner used a can of deep red spray paint on it and it was pretty … [Read more...]

Schloss Buffet Makeover

I couldn't believe I was able to easily snag this stunning buffet. I found it posted for sale on a Facebook sale site and it was there a day or two before I sent over a message to the seller. I couldn't believe no one got to it before me! I took my Mom to help me pick it up...not that she actually helps me load pieces as she probably 85 pounds, BUT her company is nice. She's so supportive of … [Read more...]

Striking Buffet in Miss Mustard Seed’s Milk Paint in Typewriter

    She was lovely before paint...it's true. Can you imagine how much more with paint?? I purchased this from a furniture shop and opted not to buy the top piece rather using the base as simply a buffet. I loved her curves and that hardware was pretty awesome! I envisioned her as elegant and perfect for someone's dining room so I chose to paint her up in Miss Mustard Seed's … [Read more...]

Kitchen Scale Buffet

I had to drive 45 minutes in rush hour traffic one way for this piece. I just liked it and figured...why not? This is a primitive style piece that came to me painted in a deep brick red. I loved that it could be used as a buffet or media stand...it was a versatile piece. Not to mention buffet and media stands are always sought out items. So....I planned to paint this guy in Miss Mustard … [Read more...]

Witching Hour Buffet Makeover

 I spotted this amazing buffet on Craigslist this week...I loved her lines and all her storage. I imagined her all painted up in a new color. She had great bones and just needed to be updated a bit. I knew she would make an amazing buffet or media stand! Plus she was in great shape so really no repairs were needed...that was a BIG bonus! She barely fit in my Jeep Cherokee, but I made it … [Read more...]

Antique White Buffet Makeover

I purchased the most beautiful buffet the other day. I found it on Craigslist and it was a little above my typical furniture budget. Fortunately the sellers on Craigslist are open to reasonable offers. I generally always make fair offers if I can :) Never be afraid to do so...what is the worst than can happen? I sent my best offer and they were open to accepting it :) I was so happy they … [Read more...]

The Buffet: Burn Baby Burn

If you follow my blog on Facebook, you recall I posted this picture with the caption "Burn or Save?" I purchased this a few weeks back. It looked better in this picture than in person - trust me. It was a hot mess. The wood was old and worn.  The hardware missing. It was pretty unsightly. I asked what you would do...save it or burn it. I got a ton of responses!  It was fun to read your … [Read more...]

Fantastic Teal Buffet

I purchased this gorgeous buffet MONTHS ago. For months, I used it as a workbench in my garage to put my hardware storage on top. It was a pretty piece to look at, but I had no motivation at all to redo her. The main issue was that her front leg needed cosmetic repair. Structurally she was sound, but she needed some DIY help. I hemmed and hawed about what to do and my indecisiveness paralyzed … [Read more...]

Old to New Buffet

I purchased this gorgeous buffet from a gal I knew. I thought I was so lucky to have been the first person to see it for sale. It is always a RACE to WIN good pieces of furniture on these Facebook sale sites. I love them, but they are sheer madness I tell ya. Isn't she beautiful? I intended to paint the base cream while refinishing the top in a dark walnut stain, BUT my plan didn't go off … [Read more...]

Sophisticated Artissimo Buffet

I know a lovely lady that just happened to be scaling down her collection of furniture...she called on me to see if I were interested in purchasing anything. I was happy to oblige and stopped by to have a look. This sweet buffet immediately caught my eye. I have been doing this long enough to know just what I am looking for. This piece was an old beauty and in pretty good shape for its age. I … [Read more...]
