French Provincial Boxwood Buffet

French Boxwood Buffet 1 - Embracing Change

 I wish all pieces that I purchased to redo were this beautiful right from the start. 9 times out of 10 they are not, but this one was one of the few that was pretty when I picked it up.

My heart always goes pitter patter for French Provincial pieces and when I saw this beauty, I was … [Read more...]

Typewriter Milk Painted Buffet

Typewriter Buffet 2 -  Embracing Change

 I purchased a great dry sink from a lady last week. It was a Craigslist find and the seller was an extremely kind-hearted lady. I had to drive out to Amish Country in Lancaster County to pick it up - it was a glorious day with buggies abound. I loved every second. After loading it in my Jeep, she casually mentioned that she had a dresser in her cellar and she could send me pics if I was … [Read more...]

Ugly Sideboard Makeover

Rustic black buffet 1 - Embracing Change

Oh my. This piece was not pretty. Whew. It's a little hard on the eyes. Maybe a little painful to even look at. I know what you are thinking.   What on Earth can be done to that piece?  It is REALLY ugly.   Yeah, I knew that when I got it, but I knew a little paint could save the day. Paint is an amazing thing.   Behold its power: This gorgeous hardware is from D. Lawless … [Read more...]
