Fast forward a few months. I had another buffet that I wasn't so in love with. It really was a great sturdy piece, but it was very 50's retro style, which is great, it's just not my personal style. It had moved between a couple of my booths and still hadn't sold. Then, someone approached me and asked me if I would trade that buffet for another buffet they had AND a cedar wardrobe. Umm...YES, most definitely YES...didn't even need to see the buffet. But, when I did....oh, be still my heart....it was this one. The same one from the estate sale. I love it when God gives me good little surprises!
Let's just say it didn't look as good and chippy as it does in this picture (but I don't have a good before pic). Let's also say that NONE of the drawers/doors worked properly. Lucky me, I have a bit of skill with the power tools and I have a handy hubby and daddy who were happy to assist. Needless to say, this piece turned out stunning in the end. PS-did you know that you can use finishing wax to help drawers slide better...just rub it on the drawers and slides and it make it slide like butter (well, most of the time that is).
